Sisters of the brush : women's artistic culture in late nineteenth-century Paris by Tamar Garb ( Book )
6 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 806 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Union of Women Painters and Sculptors was founded in Paris in 1881 to represent the interests of women artists and to facilitate the exhibition of their work. This lively and informative book traces the history of the first fifteen years of the organisation and places it in the contexts of the Paris art world and the development of feminism in the late nineteenth century. Tamar Garb explores how the Union campaigned to have women artists written about in the press and admitted to the Salon jury and into the prestigious Ecole des Beaux-Arts, and describes how the organisation's leaders took their campaigns into the French parliament itself. Although the women of the Union were often quite conservative politically, socially, and stylistically, says Garb, they believed that women had a special gift that would enhance France's cultural reputation and maintain the uplifting moral-cultural position that seemed in jeopardy at the turn of the century. Focusing on the developments that made the prominence of the organisation possible, Garb discusses the growth of the women's movement, educational reforms, institutional changes in the art world, and critical debates and contemporary scientific thought. She examines contemporary perceptions of both art and femininity, showing how the understanding of one affected the image of the other. This book reverses conventional accounts of late nineteenth-century French art, offering a new picture of the Paris art world from the point of view of a group of women who were marginalised by its dominant institutions

Bodies of modernity : figure and flesh in fin-de-siècle France by Tamar Garb ( Book )
9 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 508 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Bodies of Modernity offers a wealth of new insights into the representation of masculinity and femininity at a time when gender distinctions were strictly enforced. In late nineteenth-century France, men and women were believed to be polar opposites, and were required to express this in the clothes they wore, the poses they struck and the behaviour they exhibited
The painted face : portraits of women in France, 1814-1914 by Tamar Garb ( Book )
9 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 416 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Painted portraits are conventionally thought to present accurate representations of their sitters, whose identity and likeness are captured on canvas. This unique hook demonstrates that portraits as pictures are much more complicated than this. Focusing on the painting of female sitters, The Painted Face deals with the stories and fantasies that inform the viewing of portraits, the historical conventions and social situations that affect their appearance and the dehales and discussions that they have generated over time."--BOOK JACKET
The body in time : figures of femininity in late nineteenth-century France by Tamar Garb ( Book )
6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Body in Time looks at two different genres in relation to the construction of femininity in late nineteenth-century France: Degas' representation of ballet dancers and the transforming tradition of female portraiture. Class, gender, power, and agency are at stake in both arenas, but they play themselves out in different ways via different pictorial languages." "Degas' depictions of anonymous young female ballerinas at the Paris Opera reflect his fascination with the physical exertions and prosaic setting of the dancer's sexualized body. Unlike the standard Romantic depictions of the ballerina, Degas' dancers are anonymous, spread-legged workers on public display. Female portraiture and self-portraiture, in contrast, depicted the unique and the distinctive: privileged women, self-assured individuals transgressing gender conventions." "Focusing on Degas' representation of the dancer, Tamar Garb examines the development of Degas' oeuvre from its early Realist documentary ambitions to the abstracted Symbolist renderings of the feminine as cypher in his later works. She argues that despite the apparent depletion of social significance and specificity, Degas' later works remain deeply enmeshed in contemporary gendered ways of viewing and experiencing art and life."--Jacket

Gauguin, créateur de mythes [exposition, Londres, Tate Modern, 30 septembre 2010 - 16 janvier 2011 ; Washigton, National Gallery of art, 27 février - 5 juin 2011] by Tate modern ( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in French and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Paul Gauguin fut l'un des artistes les plus extraordinaires et les plus novateurs de la fin du XIXe et du début du XXe siècle. Les couleurs vives, antinaturalistes, et les silhouettes aux contours épais de ses tableaux, de même que la puissance et la quasi-abstraction de ses gravures sur bois exercèrent une influence profonde sur le développement de l'art du XXe siècle. Dans le même temps, ses nombreux voyages et sa décision de quitter la France pour les mers du Sud firent de lui, au-delà d'un aventurier colonial européen, l'artiste bohème par excellence. Ce livre richement illustré, qui accompagne une importante exposition itinérante, couvre la totalité de la carrière de Gauguin. Il aborde plus particulièrement son utilisation du récit, à la fois source d'inspiration nourrissant son oeuvre et outil ayant servi à forger une mythologie toute personnelle autour de son individualité artistique. Plusieurs essais, rédigés par des experts internationalement reconnus et s'appuyant sur les recherches les plus récentes, vont au-delà des aspects romanesques de la vie de Gauguin pour montrer en quoi il fut une figure fondamentale de la modernité européenne n'hésitant pas à s'approprier des mondes et des objets jugés primitifs ou sauvages jusque-là. Outre de nombreux tableaux et dessins bien connus, ce livre traite aussi de ses sculptures sur bois et de ses céramiques, tout en explorant son legs littéraire." P. [4] of cover
