"Here are Brassai's iconic scenes of nocturnal Paris with its prostitutes and thugs, its night workers, cafes, dance halls, and theaters; here are the fog-shrouded streets, monuments, and bridges; and here is the literary and artistic elite of the Parisian avant-garde, whom Brassai counted among his friends. Alongside these images, and providing a deeper understanding of his working method, are many previously unpublished contact prints and variations of familiar shots taken from a different angle, differently framed, or as part of a sequence that constitutes a veritable short story on film. Beyond these, there are examples of Brassai's nude studies and magnifications of commonplace objects, the engraved photographic plates that he called "transmutations," his drawings and sculpted pebbles, the graffiti he found so fascinating - indeed, everything to which he turned his imaginative mind throughout a long, productive life." "With the close cooperation of Mme. Gilberte Brassai, the artist's widow, and with the support of Jean-Jacques Aillagon, president of the Centre Pomidou, and of Werner Spies, director of the Musee National d'Art Moderne in Paris, Alain Sayag and Annick Lionel-Marie have succeeded in producing the definitive summary of this important oeuvre. As an extra dimension, the book includes penetrating excerpts from the writings of Brassai himself and of his friends and admirers Henry Miller, Jacques Prevert, and Roger Grenier; an interview with Gilberte Brassai and a biography compiled by her; and an extensive bibliography and list of exhibitions."--BOOK JACKET

"Recueil de 63 photographies de Brassaï, l'un des photographes les plus célèbres de son temps. Ses images d'un Paris nocturne et secret figurent dans toutes les anthologies. Mais, s'il occupe une place à part dans l'histoire de la la photographie, c'est qu'il fut davantage qu'un noctambule à l'insatiable curiosité. S'il fut le chantre attentif et subtil d'une époque exceptionnellement féconde, il fut aussi l'ami des artistes qu'il photographiait et ses conversations avec Picasso et Miller enrichissent une oeuvre d'une profonde singularité

Trônes en majesté : l'autorité et son symbole by Jacques Charles-Gaffiot ( Book )
3 editions published in 2011 in French and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Entre sobriété et majesté, mesure et démesure, le trône puise toujours à la même symbolique : celle de l'autorité assise . Pour la première fois, dans le décor somptueux du château de Versailles, lieu par excellence de l'exercice et de la représentation de la souveraineté, une exposition réunit des trônes venus du monde entier. Ce livre permet d'en mieux comprendre le modèle symbolique, dans ses dimensions politique, universitaire, économique et religieuse. Au point de départ de ce parcours historique et artistique, une évidence : la souveraineté fait toujours intervenir deux notions distinctes, l'autorité et la puissance. Tandis que la puissance, éphémère et difficilement acquise, reste un attribut fragile et sans cesse menacé, l'autorité assure à son titulaire la pérennité de son pouvoir et une estime universelle : elle l' assied, inspirant une obéissance qui vaut reconnaissance de légitimité. Muni de ses attributs essentiels gradin, dais et marchepied, le trône se pare aussi d'un bestiaire fantastique et imaginaire, peuplé de lions ailés, de chimères et de fabuleux dragons. Sur le siège ainsi décoré apparaît la majestueuse autorité qui toujours se révèle sous les traits d'un personnage assis. À la découverte de ces trônes, stables ou mobiles, simples ou fastueux, objets de déférence ou de dérision, un enseignement finira par sourdre de ces lignes, à destination des maîtres de ce monde, souverains ou chefs d'État, édiles ou magistrats : conserver le pouvoir ne peut s'opérer qu'à l'aune de la leçon que nous dispense l'étude de ces fascinants emblèmes."
