Nineteenth-century art : from Romanticism to Art Nouveau : the Walters Art Gallery, Baltimore by Md.) Walters Art Gallery (Baltimore( Book )

6 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The nineteenth-century holdings of the Walters Art Gallery are unique amongst museum art collections from this period. This new title presents the highlights from this collection. These include a series of paintings by the foremost masters of the Romantic era, J.A.D. Ingres and Eugene Delacroix, as well as landscapes by painters associated with the Barbizon school. Likewise, the "transportation" series of watercolors that William Walters bought from Honore Daumier in 1864 is generally recognized as the highpoint of nineteenth-century Realism. However, it is in the field of academic art, which dominated French art during the Second Empire (1852-70), that The Walters excels. The conflicts between the academic painters - especially Jean-Leon Gerome and Alexandre Cabanel - and the impressionists are demonstrated by the museum's collection. The author presents the work of Edouard Manet in close proximity to that of his teacher, Thomas Couture, and the landscapes of Claude Monet and Alfred Sisley are juxtaposed with a highly idealized, poetic vision of Egypt by Charles Gleyre, with whom they trained."--Jacket

Henry Walters and Bernard Berenson : collector and connoisseur by Stanley Mazaroff( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""What transpires when a self-described capitalist engages a world-renowned connoisseur of Renaissance Italian art to refine and enhance his vast collection? Stanley Mazaroff explores in depth the complex relationship and the exchanges between Baltimore collector Henry Walters and scholar Bernard Berenson. The years covered in his study, principally 1910 through 1916, proved critical for both of them: Berenson was beginning to venture into the art market, collaborating with Joseph Duveen in a partnership that would sometimes compromise his judgment, and Walters, having just completed a Genoese palazzo-style museum building, was hastening to fill it with additional purchases."--The Foreword" "Collecting Italian Renaissance paintings during America's Gilded Age was fraught with risk because of the uncertain identities of the artists and the conflicting interests of the dealers. Stanley Mazaroff's fascinating account of the close relationship between Henry Walters, founder of the legendary Walters Art Museum in Baltimore, and Bernard Berenson, the era's preeminent connoisseur of Italian paintings, richly illustrates this important chapter of America's cultural history." "When Walters opened his Italianate museum in 1909, it was labeled as America's "Great Temple of Art." With more than 500 Italian paintings, including self-portraits purportedly by Raphael and Michelangelo, Walters's collection was compared favorably with the great collections in London, Paris, and Berlin. In the midst of this fanfare, Berenson contacted Walters and offered to analyze his collection, sell him additional paintings, and write a scholarly catalogue that would trumpet the collection on both sides of the Atlantic. What Berenson offered was what Walters desperately needed--a badge of scholarship that Berenson's invaluable imprimatur would undoubtedly bring." "By 1912, Walters had become Berenson's most active client, their business alliance wrapped in a warm and personal friendship
