Most widely held works by Laurence Des Cars
Edward Burne-Jones, Victorian artist-dreamer by Stephen Wildman( Book )

8 editions published in 1998 in English and Italian and held by 656 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A pupil of Dante Gabriel Rossetti and a protege of John Ruskin, Burne-Jones belonged to the second generation of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, creating a narrative style of romantic symbolism steeped in medieval legend and fused with the influence of Italian Renaissance masters that was to have widespread influence on both British and European art. Within the sophisticated culture of the late Victorian period, Burne-Jones's star rose rapidly, and by the 1880s he had become the establishment artist par excellence, one of the most admired and sought-after painters in Europe. Burne-Jones, in addition to being a successful and innovative painter, was also an important force in the Arts and Crafts movement, working closely with his lifelong friend William Morris in the production of such decorative arts as ceramic tiles, stained glass, large-scale tapestries, and illustrated books to be printed at Morris's renowned Kelmscott Press. Examples of works in all these media are presented in the exhibition, with full-color and black-and-white reproductions of each of the 173 works included in the catalogue

The spectacular art of Jean-Léon Gérôme : 1824-1904 by Jean Léon Gérôme( Book )

7 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gérôme was one of the most famous artists of his day, yet throughout his career he was the object of polemical debate and harsh criticism. Long stigmatized as the embodiment of sterile academicism, he is now considered to be one of the greatest painters of the nineteenth century. Gérôme's interest in Antiquity, his theatrical approach to history painting, and his complex relationships with the Orient and with the new medium of photography all contributed to his highly inventive imagery. Acquired by American collectors at an early date, Gérôme's oeuvre fired the new world's historical imagination and even inspired its favorite medium, the movies. This catalogue traces Gérôme's unique career and features his major works--from history paintings to polychrome sculptures--thereby casting the nineteenth century in a new light."--Cover p. [4]

Louvre-Abu Dhabi : naissance d'un musée( Book )

9 editions published in 2013 in French and Italian and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Appelé à lever un coin du voile sur ses collections en avril 2013, le musée du Louvre Abu Dhabi suscite déjà une grande curiosité. Si l'architecture imaginée par Jean Nouvel pour l'abriter est connue, ce livre, première publication à lui être consacrée, permet de découvrir l'esprit universel qui préside à la naissance de ce nouveau musée. C'est notamment à travers la collection qui se constitue aujourd'hui qu'on peut le mieux sentir et saisir cet esprit, grâce aux premières acquisitions réunies et présentées de façon inédite dans cet ouvrage. En effet, les 300 oeuvres reproduites, d'une qualité exceptionnelle, font dialoguer les différentes civilisations du monde et leurs expressions artistiques, des plus immémoriales aux plus actuelles, de l'archéologie à l'art contemporain. Ainsi l'Égypte ancienne et l'art gréco-romain côtoient-ils des ensembles d'art islamique et la grande statuaire d'Asie, des oeuvres de Bellini, Murillo, Manet ou encore Mondrian, ainsi que des objets d'art de la Renaissance européenne."
