The symbolist generation, 1870-1910 by Pierre-Louis Mathieu( Book )

14 editions published in 1990 in English and Undetermined and held by 696 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Beginning with the Pre-Raphaelites and those pivotal French artists (de Chavannes, Moreau, Redon and others) who assured the transition from romanticism to symbolism, this magnificent (and splendidly color-illustrated) work turns to examine Gauguin's contribution to the spread of symbolism, an international movement that boasted such fine painters as the Nabis, the artists of the Rose+Croix Salons, as well as Böcklin and Hodler in Switzerland, Rops, Khnopff, and Ensor in Belgium, Toorop in the Netherlands. Unlike impressionism, fauvism or cubism, no symbolist style exist. Rather, symbolist artists, trained at the official academies of the Beaux-Arts, tutored in romanticism or naturalism, often expressed very similar themes while using quite different techniques. Abandoning both the realist and the impressionist representation of nature, these artists favored the projection of an inner universe filled with allegories and fantasies, extatic visions and horrific nightmares drawn from the depth of their unconscious."--book jacket

Gustave Moreau, the watercolors by Pierre-Louis Mathieu( Book )

4 editions published between 1984 and 1985 in English and Undetermined and held by 411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fifty-four plates of excellent quality, 40 in color and 8 of these enlarged a bit beyond the original, reproduce a sampling of the 400 or so little-known watercolors by the Symbolist Moreau (1826-98). An expert on the artist, Mathieu here writes for the casual reader, covering mostly generalities in a two-chapter essay and so-so commentaries on the plates. Themes include Moreau's relation to Romanticism, Symbolism, poetry, and the erotic. Mathieu, who inscrutably confuses any implied chronology with several early dated works placed at the end of the book, finally agrees that Moreau developed his own nonfigurative style prior to Kandinsky's first abstract watercolor. One wishes this book were better organized and less repetitious, and that it spoke in more detail of the works themselves. For large collections. Mary Hamel-Schwulst, Art Dept., Goucher College, Md.

Gustave Moreau : the assembler of dreams, 1826-1898 by Pierre-Louis Mathieu( Book )

13 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in French and English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Moreau's life, although the painter himself did not believe so, casts a singular light on a work in which he was far more involved personally that he imagined: he is one of the forerunners and leading exponents of the symbolist trend that prevailed in the late nineteenth century. This movement actually defined itself by the projection onto the canvas of inner sentiments, often those of the artist himself, and which an accurate knowledge of his biography allows us to better understand, a century after his death, now that the restrictions he imposed on his first biographers have given way to time and that the private apartments conserved in the heart of his museum he had so carefully arranged for posterity have been opened to the public. It is now permitted and possible to present what is known and after all quite a lot is known about the life of the one who called himself the worker assembler of dreams."--Publisher description
