Jean-Antoine Houdon : sculptor of the Enlightenment by Anne L Poulet( Book )

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 552 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

French artist Jean-Antoine Houdon (1741-1826) has long been recognized as the greatest European portrait sculptor of the late eighteenth century, flourishing during both the American and French Revolutions as well as during the Directoire and Empire in France. Whether sculpting a head of state, an intellectual, or a young child, Houdon had an uncanny ability to capture the essence of his subject with a characteristic pose or expression. This lavish exhibition catalogue will immediately take its rightful place as the definitive work on Houdon. With more than one hundred color plates and two hundred black and white halftones, Jean-Antoine Houdon: Sculptor of the Enlightenment illustrates every stage of the sculptor's fascinating career, from his early portrayals of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette to his stunning portraits of American patriots such as George Washington, the Marquis de Lafayette, John Paul Jones, Benjamin Franklin, and Thomas Jefferson. Accompanying the images of Houdon's masterworks are four insightful essays that discuss Houdon's views on art (based in part on a newly discovered manuscript written by the artist) as well as his prominence in the highly varied cultures of eighteenth-century France, Germany, and Russia

Analyse les visages représentés par Jean-Antoine Houdon dans les bustes réalisés entre 1764 et 1791. Montre que son esprit d'observation et sa sensibilité ont contribué à l'idée que chacun peut se faire des personnalités des Lumières (Diderot, Rousseau, Voltaire, Mirabeau...). Passionné par la physiognomonie, l'auteur montre que le travail de Houdon exprime une curiosité pour cette discipline
