Matisse : a second life by Henri Matisse( Book )
3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 552 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 impérial du Luxembourg (France)( Book )
2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Famous all over the world for his portraitsan illustrated composite 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 understoodrediscovered 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 artists anamorphic portraits, this volume includes an important selection of Arcimboldos 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 Arcimboldos extraordinary work. - Publisher
