Maurice Denis by Maurice Denis( Book )
8 editions published in 2006 in French and English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 1895 George Eastman, the founder of Kodak, unveiled the latest model of his portable cameras for the market of amateur photographers. The user of these machines was unable to see the subject framed through the lens clearly but Maurice Denis made successful use of the fortuitous nature of early photography. Like Bonnard and Vuillard, thanks to his familiarity with Japanese prints, Denis became one of the best interpreters of the aesthetics of instant photography. The pictures he took between 1895 and 1913 of his family and painter and writer friends are fascinating for the strong affinities they have with his pictorial and graphical work

Catalogue raisonné de l'oeuvre photographique de Maurice Denis (1896-1919) by Saskia Ooms( Book )
2 editions published in 2009 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The doctoral thesis consists of compiling a catalogue raisonné of the photographs by the French symbolist Nabis painter Maurice Denis (1870-1943). We have reassembled, inventoried and analyzed 1250 negatives and 2689 silver prints. Denis's photographs are an enormously rich resource that will help us to understand more thoroughly the role and characteristics of his art as well as its context. The scope of this study is the period from 1896 to 1919. Like his friends in the Nabis group, Denis mainly used a Kodak camera. The compact portable box camera made photography accessible not only to artists and professionals but also to amateur photographers. This dissertation analyzes his amateur photographs in relation to his paintings. The comparison with other post-Impressionist painters who also took family photos, such as Bonnard, Vuillard, Breitner enables us to situate Denis in the history of photography. We will examine in depth the aesthetics of his photographs and the fascinating and strong affinities they have with his paintings and drawings. His photos reflect the taste for symbols, simplified forms and harmonious lines that is characteristic of his paintings. He used the camera in a variety of ways: as an amusing toy and to create images as studies for final art works. His photos were not only a compositional aid to his paintings, however, and as we will argue they reflect many of his pictorial influences. Thanks to his familiarity with Japanese prints, he became one of the most gracious interpreters of the aesthetics of snapshot photography. This study of his photographs will contribute to the full comprehension of his art in the context of his time in a new and broader way
