Ouvrage publié à l'occasion de l'exposition présentée à Toulouse, Musée des Augustins, du 4 octobre 2014 au 4 janvier 2015.00Benjamin-Constant (1845-1902), acteur majeur de la peinture orientaliste sous la IIIe République en France, est ici étudié pour la première fois. Le souvenir de ses voyages en Espagne et au Maroc marque son style de vie : son atelier ostentatoire est rempli d'objets hispano-mauresques. Dans la lignée d'un Delacroix qu'il admire, ce brillant coloriste se rapproche de l'orientalisme d'Henri Regnault, Mariano Fortuny, Georges Clairin et Jean-Paul Laurens, peintres dont les oeuvres sont ici mises en relation.0Superbement illustrée, cette première monographie sur Benjamin-Constant réunit une équipe internationale d'experts chevronnés qui examinent, à partir de recherches inédites, la biographie d'un artiste célèbre et méconnu - dans son atelier et au Salon, depuis l'Académie des Beaux-Arts jusqu'aux cercles de collectionneurs étrangers

Benjamin-Constant : marvels and mirages of orientalism( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A leading Orientalist painter during the Third Republic in France, Jean-Joseph Benjamin-Constant was one of the great colourists of the period, and his work evokes the sights he had witnessed during his travels in Spain and Morocco, as well as reflecting the exotic contents of his studio. He was the creator of huge, architectural compositions, in which he set fierce-looking Moors and dispassionate odalisques. His history paintings, based on stories from the Bible and Byzantine history, were the culmination of his ventures into Orientalism, and his sparkling palette resulted in wonderfully chromatic and beautiful works. He also stands out as one of the era's great painters of decorative cycles, from his work in Paris at the Opera Comique and the Gare d'Orsay, to the Capitole in Toulouse. His reputation as a society portraitist, meanwhile, won him an international reputation among royalty and the aristocracy, particularly in England. Generously illustrated and written by an international team of specialists on late 19th-century French art, this is the first study to focus on this fascinating figure, offering new and unpublished research into the life of a famous yet today little-known artist and revealing him at work in his studio and at the Paris Salon, teaching at the Academie Julian and amidst the many foreign students and collectors who flocked round him.0Exhibition: Musée des Augustins, Toulouse, France (4.10.2014-4.1.2015) / Museum of Fine Arts, Montreal, Canada (27.1.-31.5.2015)
