1815, Waterloo by Henry Houssaye( Book )

191 editions published between 1893 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 692 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This ebook is purpose built and is proof-read and re-type set from the original to provide an outstanding experience of reflowing text for an ebook reader. Waterloo Illustration Pack - 14 maps/battle plans, 18 portraits of the personalities engaged, 10 illustrations. Houssaye's history of the 1815 campaign stands out as perhaps the most complete and least biased French account of the campaign that culminated in the downfall of Napoleon. Filled with detail from numerous French sources and written in a light style, it provides a complete look at the campaign whilst keeping the narrative to a reasonable length. There is also an occasional flash of wit - usually missing from French accounts, substituted instead with accusation and counter accusation - which makes the book a real joy to read. For example, speaking of Grouchy on the morning of the 18th "Grouchy was eating some strawberries (to eat strawberries is not, moreover, a hanging matter, even on a morning of battle),..." Henry Houssaye, an esteemed member of the French Institute, wrote a number of works on the Napoleonic period (mainly of the later years of Napoleon), amongst them plays and ancient history

Théodore Géricault : dieux, hommes, chevaux by Henry Houssaye( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in French and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Né en 1791 à Rouen, Théodore Guéricault a deux passions l'art et le cheval. A la mort de sa mère en 1808 et grâce à son héritage, le jeune Théodore entre dans l'atelier de Carle Vernet, peintre spécialisé dans l'étude des chevaux. Après avoir échoué au concours du Prix de Rome en 1816, il voyage en Italie, découvre les peintres de la Renaissannce italienne, Michel-Ange, Raphaël et le peintre flamand Rubens. De retour à Paris, il s'installe rue des Martyrs et prépare son oeuvre monumentale le Radeau de la Méduse qui sera présentée au salon de 1819. L'iconographie de cet ouvrage s'attache principalement à ses nombreux dessins et études préparatoires d'une puissance extraordinaire, évoquant des scènes de lutte, d'affrontement, et de corps à corps qui répondent à une vie désordonnée, hantée par la souffrance et la mort. Guéricault introduit dans la peinture le mouvement, la couleur et les thèmes réalistes qui permettent de parler à partir de Delacroix, son héritier spirituel, d'une nouvelle école : le romantisme
