Bonjour, Monsieur Courbet! : the Bruyas collection from the Musée Fabre, Montpellier by Gustave Courbet( Book )

9 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This illustrated book features ninety-four works from Alfred Bruyas's celebrated collection, including nine masterpieces by Courbet as well as important paintings, drawings, and sculptures by such leading French artists of the period as Delacroix, Ingres, Gericault, Millet, Corot, Rousseau, and Barye. The accompanying texts, written by a team of international scholars and drawing upon a wealth of unpublished correspondence between Bruyas, his advisors, and the artists whose work he collected, examine Bruyas's role as one of the few mid-nineteenth-century private collectors of contemporary art and the significance of his patronage of living artists. In addition, the well-known but little-scrutinized relationship between Bruyas and Courbet is also examined in depth. A newly discovered critique of the renowned collection, written by the influential artist Paul Signac some twenty years after Bruyas's death, is also presented."--Jacket
Alphonse Mucha by Alphonse Mucha( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Alfonse Mucha is known largely for having originated Art Nouveau, when his poster of the actress Sarah Bernhardt became a legendary icon of the movement. Mucha went on to design hundreds of pieces in the decorative arts field, but later distanced himself from the style he pioneered, devoting his time and energy to painting. This book presents the full array of Mucha's artistic contributions-not only his posters and jewelry designs but also his design for the pavilion of Bosnia and Herzegovina at the 1900 World's Fair. The book also includes his works on canvas, which include pastels and frescoes, and his magnum opus, The Slavic Epic, a series of 20 paintings depicting the history of his native people. A stunning selection of 700 color illustrations is accompanied with essays that explore Mucha's style and inspirations, his transition away from the decorative arts, and his forays into photography..."--Publisher description

"En 1759, sur la sollicitation de son ami Grimm, Diderot se voit confier la tâche de rédiger les comptes rendus des Salons, expositions organisées par l'Académie royale de peinture et de sculpture dans le palais du Louvre. Ces écrits, publiés dans la Correspondance littéraire, feront l'admiration de nombreux écrivains et critiques du XIXe siècle. À l'occasion de la commémoration du tricentenaire de la naissance du philosophe, cet ouvrage propose une synthèse des récentes recherches sur les liens entretenus par Diderot avec les Arts et sur ses critères de jugement du Beau : la Vérité, la Poésie, la Magie. À travers la présentation d'oeuvres admirées ou décriées par l'écrivain sont mis à l'honneur certains des plus grands maîtres du XVIIIe siècle : Boucher, Chardin, David, Falconet, Greuze, Houdon, Pigalle, Robert, Vernet, Vien, etc. Le partenariat entre le musée Fabre de Montpellier Agglomération et la Fondation de l'Hermitage à Lausanne a permis de réunir un corpus exceptionnel de peintures, sculptures, dessins et gravures qui composent un remarquable panorama de la création française au temps de Diderot."--Page 4 of cover
Frédéric Bazille (1841-1870) and the birth of impressionism by Michel Hilaire( Book )

7 editions published in 2016 in 3 languages and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The paintings of Frederic Bazille (1841-1870) were rediscovered after the turn of the century by art critics and curators who accredited the artist as an important pioneer in the development of impressionism. Tracing his artistic career from its inception-including his links to Manet, Monet, Renoir, and Cezanne-this book unveils Bazille's complete painted works and reveals the artist's devotion to the principles of avant-garde art in the 1860s. Organized thematically and chronologically, his work is placed into the context of nineteenth-century art and history: from landscape paintings influenced by Monet, to his still lifes, portraits, and singular technique, and from his departure for war to his posthumous renown. Presented as in a catalogue raisonne, sixty-five of Bazille's paintings are accompanied by a detailed technical caption and an explanatory notice. Facsimiles of the artist's personal letters are interspersed throughout the book, providing intimate insight on his life. Bazille is a major artist who contributed to the advent of impressionism, and this monograph is completed with a comprehensive bibliography, a list of works, and two maps detailing his life in Montpellier and Paris

Alexandre Cabanel : the tradition of beauty by Alexandre Cabanel( Book )

12 editions published in 2011 in German and English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the foremost artists of 19th century France, Alexandre Cabanel (1823 - 1889), will be featured in his first exhibition at the Wallraf in Spring 2011. In cooperation with Musée Fabre in Montpellier, the Wallraf in Cologne will present over 60 works by a man who rose from the rank of a lowly carpenter's son to become court painter to Napoleon III. In order to give these graceful works by the last of the great salon painters just the right ambience, the Wallraf has secured the services of a distinguished compatriot of Cabanel: Star designer Christian Lacroix has been commissioned to design a special interior exclusively for the exhibition. Lacroix studied at the Academy of Arts in Montpellier the hometown of Cabanel and regards the painter as one of his all-time favourites. Exhibition: Wallraf-Richartz Museum, Köln (4.2-15.5.2011)
