Overcoming all obstacles : the women of the Académie Julian by N.Y.) Dahesh Museum of Art (New York( Book )

7 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 579 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Overcoming All Obstacles: The Women of the Academie Julian is the first book to examine late nineteenth-century Paris's most famous training ground for the leading women artists of the period. The Academie Julian was founded in Paris in 1868, initially to prepare students for entry to the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, the nineteenth century's preeminent art school. Because women could not study at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts until 1897, Julian itself became an international equivalent for many of the late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century's most important women artists." "Not only does Overcoming All Obstacles introduce the reader to many works by women artists - both famous and lesser known - but the essays offer a cultural and historical context in which to appreciate their art."--Jacket
"Only One Art" : the interaction of painting and sculpture in the work of Medardo Rosso, Auguste Rodin, and Eugène Carrière, 1884-1906 by Jane R Becker( )

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

This dissertation addresses a unity of the arts forged in the fin-de-siecle Parisian work of Medardo Rosso, Auguste Rodin, and Eugene Carriere. The artists shared an affinity for molten forms, whether in a painted sfumato style or in a sculpted non-finito aesthetic. In intimist scenes and fleeting urban imagery, these three friends (or, in the case of Rosso and Rodin, friends and later rivals) presented figures to the viewer through the prism of visual instability. By emphasizing atmosphere, the three created a continuum of space and form that ignored the boundaries of each realm. Space became active in relation to both light and the objects portrayed. Rosso led their aggressive new explorations of the incompleteness of human vision

"Artists continued to discover and explore the artistic and practical applications of photography at the end of the nineteenth and the beginning of the twentieth centuries. This book explores the highly individual ways some of the most influential artists of the turn of the century put this "wondrous new medium" to use in their painting and sculpture and shows how they enfolded photographs into their creative processes."--Jacket
