Matisse : a second life by Henri Matisse( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 551 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This catalogue devoted to Matisse's late work--a period he described as his 'second life'--sheds exceptional new light on the artist through his correspondence with the writer André Rouveyre. Beginning with Matisse's serious operation in 1941 and ending with his death in 1954, these last years saw an extraordinary blossoming of his art. His correspondence with André Rouveyre--a novelist and artist dreaded for his cruel portraits, who was also Matisse's old friend from their student days at Gustave Moreau's studio--testifies almost daily to this autumn triumph. The voluminous written exchange (nearly 1,200 letters, many of which are covered with drawings or decorations by the artist), with its wealth of fertile observation, offers a unique look at Matisse's creative process and aspirations during a period when he was redefining his modes of artistic expression. For the first time, this catalogue, like the exhibition it accompanies, relates a selection of these letters and their drawings to works produced during the same years: oils on canvas, drawings, illustrated books along with their studies, tapestries, stained-glass window maquettes, preparatory studies for the wall decorations of the chapel at Vence and a number of dazzling large and small paper cut outs, representing the culmination of a half-century's work and Matisse's radical creative renewal.--Book jacket
Arcimboldo : 1526-1593 by Musée du Luxembourg( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and German and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Famous all over the world for his portraits (illustrated composites of plants, fruit, and animals combined to create the illusion of a human form) Arcimboldo still remains, paradoxically, a painter shrouded in mystery. This important monograph reveals the eclecticism of one of the most fertile and lively minds of the Mannerist period, placing him in the cultural context in which he lived and worked. Admired during his life, Arcimboldo fell into oblivion after his death in 1593. His original, eccentric works have been little understood, but were rediscovered at the beginning of the 20th century by the Surrealists, who considered him a precursor of Modern art. His work has enjoyed a particular revival of interest again over the last twenty years. In addition to the artist's anamorphic portraits, this volume includes an important selection of Arcimboldo's paintings (many previously unpublished), tapestries, drawings, and illustrations created throughout his life, from his training in Lombardy to his time at the Hapsburg court. This volume will enable readers to discover and appreciate the scope of the great Arcimboldo's extraordinary work. - Publisher

Cézanne and Paris by Paul Czanne( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A native of Aix-en-Provence by birth, Paul Cézanne (1839-1906) went to Paris for the first time in 1861, at the insistence of his childhood friend Émile Zola. Cézanne decided to become a painter, against his family's advice, determined to make his mark on the Parisian scene that was then intrinsic to any successful artistic career. Paradoxically, Cézanne did not use Paris as a theme for his paintings: he did not represent its streets, its monuments, life in the area, or the great urban transformations taking place, unlike many of his contemporaries, including Caillebotte, Guillaumin, and Pissarro. So was the painter indifferent to this city? Throughout his life, he would make over twenty return trips to Paris from Aix, without ever setting down in the capital, even though some of his stays there were lengthy. So what was Cézanne looking for in Paris? What kind of influence did the capital have on his painting? He had contacts with artistic and intellectual circles that were liberal in both thought and lifestyle, and was he determined at all costs to resist their temptation? Was he drawn by the city's vibrant creative buzz, seeing it as something essential to the development of his art? From a range of viewpoints and using extensive illustrations, this book explores these questions by following the painter's career in Paris and the surrounding area, as well as the motifs he used and pictorial choices he made."--Book jacket
