Oudry's painted menagerie : portraits of exotic animals in eighteenth-century Europe by Jean-Baptiste Oudry( Book )

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This beautiful volume--published to coincide with an exhibition at the J. Paul Getty Museum to be held from May 1 to September 2, 2007--is the first to focus on the series of life-size portraits painted by the eighteenth-century artist Jean-Baptiste Oudry of the animals in Louis XV's royal menagerie at Versailles. A tiger, a lion, a leopard, and, most impressive of all, the famous rhinoceros known as Clara joined a group of other exotic animals in Oudry's "painted menagerie," which was purchased in 1750 by his German patron, the Duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin. The book's insightful essays situate this suite of paintings within the context of Oudry's career; discuss Oudry's remarkable drawings of animals; and present a fascinating history of menageries and of the phenomenon known as "Claramania"--When the real rhinoceros, Clara, traveled through Europe and caused a public sensation."--Publisher's description

S'il est un lieu où tout le " siècle d'Auguste " vient se résumer, avec toute sa lyre et ses couleurs contrastées, c'est bien dans les Fables, où Virgile, Horace, les élégiaques, retrouvent leur voix sous celle de Phèdre et d'Esope, et où Ovide, qui a chanté tant de métamorphoses d'hommes en animaux, revient avec une tout autre séduction alexandrine que chez Benserade ou chez Du Ryer. Lieu d'affleurement de tant de richesses contradictoires de la tradition poétique française, les Fables s'offrent en outre le luxe de réverbérer dans toute leur diversité les saveurs de la poésie romaine à son point de suprême maturité. Il y a bien quelque chose de pantagruélique dans l'art de La Fontaine, le plus érudit de notre langue ; mais ce qui se voyait chez Rabelais, ce qui était voyant chez Ronsard, s'évapore chez lui en essence volatile et lumineuse, où des visions dignes d'Homère apparaissent, et ne se dissipent pas. Le génie d'une langue et celui d'une culture millénaire se concentrent ici en un point où la justesse de la voix et celle du regard suffisent à tout dire d'un mot. -- Back cover
