In the forest of Fontainebleau : painters and photographers from Corot to Monet by Kimberly Jones( Book )

13 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Forest of Fontainebleau, located about 50 miles southeast of Paris, held a singular place in 19th-century art. Variously called "savage," "wild," "romantic," and "beautiful" by visitors, Fontainebleau's topography was viewed in many ways that reflected the sensibilities of the time. This is the first English-language publication to examine the significance of the region to the plein-air tradition in France. The book highlights four pivotal figures in the evolution of landscape painting: Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot, The;odore Rousseau, Jean-François Millet, and Claude Monet. It integrates into this history the photographers who worked at Fontainebleau, including Eugène Cuvelier and Gustave Le Gray, and explores the role the forest played in the development of early photography. It also considers the reception of paintings of Fontainebleau at the Salons and the influence of Fontainebleau on the advent of Impressionism."
Impressionist France : visions of nation from Le Gray to Monet by Simon Kelly( Book )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Between 1850 and 1880, Impressionist landscape painting and early forms of photography flourished within the arts in France. In the context of massive social and political change that also marked this era, painters and photographers composed competing visions of France as modern and industrialized or as rural and anti-modern. Impressionist France explores the resonances between landscape art and national identity as reflected in the paintings and photographs made during this period, examining and illustrating in particular the works of key artists such as Édouard Baldus, Gustave Le Gray, the Bisson Freres, Édouard Manet, Jean-François Millet, Claude Monet, Charles Negre, and Camille Pissarro. This ambitious premise focuses on the whole of France, exploring the relationship between landscape art and the notion of French nationhood across the country's varied and spectacular landscapes in seven geographical sections and four scholarly essays, which provide new information regarding the production and impact of French Impressionism.

Neo-Impressionism and the dream of realities : painting, poetry, music by Cornelia Homburg( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This catalogue explores the creative exchange between Neo-Impressionist painters and Symbolist writers and composers in the late 1880s and early 1890s. Symbolism, with its emphasis on subjectivity, dream worlds, and spirituality, has often been considered at odds with Neo-Impressionism's approach to portraying colour and light. This book repositions the relationship between these movements and looks at how Neo-Impressionist artists such as Maximilien Luce, Georges Seurat, Paul Signac, and Henry van de Velde created evocative landscape and figural scenes by depicting emptiness, contemplative moods, Arcadia, and other themes. Beautifully illustrated with 130 colour images, this book reveals the vibrancy and depth of the Neo-Impressionist movement in Paris and Brussels in the late 19th century.

Monet : a bridge to modernity by Anabelle Kienle Poňka( Book )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and French and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This beautifully illustrated catalogue explores Claude Monet's experiments with the motif of the bridge between 1872 and 1875, in the aftermath of the Franco-Prussian War. After moving to Argenteuil, a suburban town on the outskirts of Paris, the artist (1840-1926) was inspired to paint the local highway bridge located near his house on the banks of the Seine. Le Pont de Bois (1872) depicts the bridge under repair following the destruction wrought by the war, and as such is a tribute to France's return to order. A composition of startling modernity, the painting also became a starting point for further explorations of this theme. Focusing on twelve major paintings by the artist, this book examines how Monet used the motif of the bridge as a laboratory for his innovative ideas, in his desire to establish himself as a leader of the avant-garde. it also looks at the Impressionists' artistic response in the aftermath of the Franco-Prussian War and the way in which photographers and painters highlighted the remarkable range of brides in Paris." -- Publisher's description

Becoming van Gogh by Vincent van Gogh( Book )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The career path of Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890), one of the world's most recognizable artists, was anything but typical. Focusing on the early stages of van Gogh's artistic development, Becoming van Gogh illustrates the artist's efforts to master draftsmanship, understand the challenges of materials and techniques, incorporate color theory, and fold myriad influences into his artistic vocabulary. Van Gogh was aware of avant-garde trends including Georges Seurat's divisionism, Paul Signac's and Camille Pissarro's pointillism, Émile Bernard's synthetism, and Henri Toulouse-Lautrec's immersion in the bohemian culture of Montmartre. This handsome book features works by van Gogh alongside works by the artists who influenced him, showing how he incorporated elements of their techniques into a style that became, eventually, uniquely his own. It features essays exploring how van Gogh imbued his early works with energy as he strove to master drawing with graphite, ink, and washes; how he began to understand color with watercolor paintings; and how he tested his skill with oils on canvas. The distinguished contributors to this volume offer insight into van Gogh's temperament, memory, typography, and relationship with his critics, among other topics. Generously illustrated with 150 color images, the book also includes a chronology charting the artist's stylistic development"

The untamed landscape : Théodore Rousseau and the path to Barbizon by Amy Kurlander( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With Camille Corot and Jean-François Millet, Théodore Rousseau (1812–67) ranks as one of the preeminent masters of the Barbizon School, a group of nineteenth-century French artists whose preferred subject was the primeval wooded landscape of the forest of Fontainebleau. The Barbizon School painters were greatly influenced by the Romantic movement, producing works inspired by the powerful forces of nature. Surprisingly, despite his pivotal role in French art and his profound impact on the development of landscape painting, Rousseau has never before been the subject of a monographic exhibition in the United States.00Comprising seventy works from private and public collections, including the Morgan Library & Museum, this exhibition will consider the artist's wide-ranging achievements as a draftsman and his particular approach to the open-air oil sketch. It will trace Rousseau's path to Barbizon, from his early oil sketches in the Ile-de-France, Auvergne, and Normandy, to his mature works in the Forest of Fontainebleau. Rousseau's works—some bucolic and evocative of a simpler, pre-industrial age, others brooding, moody, and redolent with lingering vestiges of Romanticism or testaments to the haunting majesty of the natural world—are both appealing and instructive. Collectively, this selection chronicles Rousseau's artistic practice and highlights his contribution to the shifting conception of landscape in the wake of the Industrial Revolution. The show will explore the range of techniques and handling of media, and the sense of poetic melancholy that permeates Rousseau's art. A fully illustrated scholarly catalogue accompanies the exhibition. 0Exhibition: The Morgan Library & Museum, New York, U.S.A. (26.09.2014-18.01.2015)

Edgar Degas repeatedly returned to the subject of millinery over the course of three decades. In several masterpieces he captured scenes of milliners fashioning and women wearing elaborate, colorful hats. Featuring sumptuous paintings, pastels, and preparatory drawings by Degas, Cassatt, Manet, Renoir, and Toulouse-Lautrec, among others, this generously illustrated book surveys the millinery industry of 19th-century Paris. Peppered throughout with photographs, posters, and prints of French hats, this book includes essays that explore Degas's particular interest in the millinery trade; the tension between modern fashion and reverence for history and the grand art-historical tradition; a chronicle of Parisian milliners from Caroline Reboux to Coco Chanel; and examples of how the millinery trade is depicted in literature. Brilliantly linking together the worlds of industry, art, and fashion, this groundbreaking book examines the fundamental role of hats and hat-makers in 19th-century culture. 0Exhibition: Saint Louis Art Museum, Missouri, USA (12.02. - 07.03.2017)
