Complete opera book by Gustav Kobbé( Book )

14 editions published between 1980 and 2002 in French and Undetermined and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le point de vue de l'éditeur. Depuis trois quarts de siècle, le Kobbé est l'ouvrage de référence des amateurs d'opéra dans le monde entier. Paru pour la première fois en 1922 quatre ans après la mort accidentelle de son auteur, Gustave Kobbé (1857-1918), écrasé par un hydravion alors qu'il faisait du bateau au large de Long Island -, cette bible des mélomanes a connu d'innombrables rééditions et de nombreuses traductions. A trois reprises (1954, 1976, 1985), lord Harewood - qui a dirigé pendant plus de vingt ans le Royal Opera House de Londres, puis l'Opéra de Covent Garden - a complété et mis à jour cet incomparable instrument de travail. Aujourd'hui, il présente, secondé par Antony Peattie, une version entièrement renouvelée. Cet ouvrage s'est enrichi de 60 oeuvres nouvelles, présentées ici pour la première fois, portant ainsi de 400 à près de 500 les opéras du monde entier qui sont analysés. Une dizaine de compositeurs, anciens et modernes, font ainsi leur entrée dans le " Nouveau Kobbé ", témoignant de la vitalité d'un genre et du renouvellement constant du répertoire. De plus, afin de tenir compte du lecteur français, certains opéras particulièrement appréciés dans notre pays ou redécouverts récemment viennent enrichir la version originale de ce livre. Pour rendre la consultation plus aisée, le " Nouveau Kobbé " présente les compositeurs de tous les temps et de tous les pays par ordre alphabétique. Les opéras sont classés par compositeur dans l'ordre de leur création et, pour chacun d'entre eux, sont rappelées les plus importantes mises en scène, y compris les plus récentes

The story of art by E. H Gombrich( Book )

4 editions published between 2003 and 2016 in French and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Story of Art is one of the most famous and popular books on art ever published. For 45 years it has remained unrivalled as an introduction to the whole subject, from the earliest cave paintings to the experimental art of today. Readers of all ages and backgrounds throughout the world have found in Professor Gombrich a true master, who combines knowledge and wisdom with a unique gift for communicating directly his own deep love of the works of art he describes." "The Story of Art owes its lasting popularity to the directness and simplicity of the writing, and also the author's skill in presenting a clear narrative. He describes his aim as 'to bring some intelligible order into the wealth of names, periods and styles which crowd the pages of more ambitious works', and using his insight into the psychology of the visual arts, he makes us see the history of art as 'a continuous weaving and changing of traditions in which each work refers to the past and points to the future', 'a living chain that still links our own time with the Pyramid age'. In its new format, the 16th edition of this classic work is set to continue its triumphant progress for future generations and to remain the first choice for all newcomers to art."--Jacket
Art nouveau in fin-de-siècle France : politics, psychology, and style by Debora Silverman( Book )

4 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in French and Undetermined and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Library Journal review: This is a dense and closely argued study of the intellectual background of "art nouveau," a term that underwent a total change in meaning between the Paris expositions of 1889 and 1900. Silverman traces the roots of the new style by examining rococo revivalism and the renewed interest in the 18th century, also considering the complex world of hu-man psychology first explored by Freud's teacher Charcot in explicating the shift from a new art of heroic iron and glass in 1889 to an art focused on the domestic and intellectual in less than a decade. All this is cogently connected to the political realities of the Third Republic. An excellent work, especially for scholars. - Jack Perry Brown, Art Institute of Chicago Library
