Описание: Now available in a lovely new gift edition, this stunning bouquet of romantic paintings brings together two important aspects of Victorian culture - the Pre-Raphaelite movement and the language of flowers - in one exquisite volume.
Few artistic movements capture classic notions of beauty as romantically as the Pre-Raphaelites - a group of 19th century painters and poets who aimed to revive the purer art of the late medieval period. In this beautiful volume, Debra N. Mancoff, an expert on Pre-Raphaelite art and the floral lexicon, presents fory breathtaking examples, which illuminate the meaning of flowers in all aspects of Victorian culture. She offers brief commentaries on individual paintings as well as biographies of the period's leading artists and their models. A captivating introduction to an artistic movement, this exquisitely produced book is also a romantic keepsake of an artistic sensibility that speaks volumes.

Описание: The execution of Emperor Maximilian of Mexico, in 1867, was the subject of a quartet of paintings by the French Impressionist and early Modernist Edouard Manet. These works are rarely shown together, and in fact cannot be seen in their entirety, since one of them exists only in fragments, but the three intact paintings and the surviving elements of the fourth are reproduced in this publication, and will be shown at The Museum of Modern Art`s exhibition in the fall of 2006. Maximilian`s death was an event of great public interest in France, in part because French policies shared the responsibility for it. A European aristocrat of the Hapsburg family, Maximilian had been installed in 1864 after a trio of European powers, led by Napoleon III of France, mounted an invasion of Mexico to reclaim debts upon which the Mexican government had suspended payment. But Napoleon soon withdrew, abandoning Maximilian to his fate at the hands of a resurgent Mexican army. As news of the execution reached Paris, Manet reacted with a group of works synthesizing the information as it came to him and drawing heavily on an earlier painting inspired by violent political events, Goya`s "The Third of May." In addition to analyzing and documenting the creation of these works, John Elderfield, in his text, clarifies their historical importance in the context of modern art, and in so doing, offers a capsular history of the place of current events in art.

Описание: Depicting the Paris of his day, Edouard Manet (18321883) captured the nineteenth-century urban experience, legitimising modern life as an artistic subject. His detached, frank mode of looking and his subversive handling of both paint and subject-matter shocked his contemporaries, and eventually established his reputation as the father of modern painting. This remarkable book explores Manets portraiture, a significant yet often neglected aspect of his work, embracing examples from throughout his career. Leading authorities provide a thorough review of the artists stylistic evolution, considering the influence of seventeenth-century Dutch painters, parallels with the work of Renoir and links with early photography. Lavishly illustrated with paintings, works on paper, and photographs of models and sitters, this landmark study throws new light on the quintessential painter of modernity.

Описание: Few artists have created as much controversy or survived it with greater fame than Edouard Manet. In his day, the avant-garde was not only a challenge to the traditions of art, but it was also a gunshot fired at society as a whole. With his painting Olympia (1869), Manet was to become, to quote Degas, “as famous as Garibaldi.” Yet how the urbane and diffident son of a bourgeois family became the father of both Realism and Impressionism is a complex and fascinating story that has too often been reduced to textbook cliches. As Manet has become recognized as a touchstone for historical change but also for interpretations of how that change came about, his individual story has become all the more relevant to the study of art history. Moreover, far from being an artists to shrink behind his work, one of Manet’s most characteristic practices was to leave an indelible trace of his own personal identity within his paintings, as illustrated throughout the volume by eminent scholar James H. Rubin. This lavishly illustrated volume is presented in a handsome box set, and offers a comprehensive and original angle of study on the great master.

Описание: Manet, a founding father of modernism, is one of the towering figures of 19th-century art. In this volume, Carol Armstrong looks closely at Manet's works to
uncover a view not only of the artist but also of modernity itself. As she places his art within frameworks of colour, the feminine Other (the "Manette" in "Manet"), and consumerism,
Armstrong seeks to expand and revise our understanding of this artist as a painter of modern life.
Surveying most of Manet's diverse output, the text addresses along the way
his methods of self-presentation, his exhibition strategies, the relation of his etchings and paintings, the significance of his relationships with the model Victorine Meurent and the painter
Berthe Morisot, the painterly construction of identity and gender difference, and much more. At the same time, it considers contemporary writings by Baudelaire, Zola, the Goncourts, and
others who dealt with issues relating to artistic identity and modernity, painting, the model, and femininity. Armstrong concludes that Manet's work demonstrates consistent
preoccupations with defining and contradicting his own signature style of painting and with the gendering of costume, colour, and the making of his art.
preoccupations, she shows, suggest a new understanding of Manet's oeuvre.

Описание: Van Gogh was inspired by the beauty and colours of nature. He brought this passion to life in some of the most vibrant depictions of the natural world ever put to canvas. This book takes a look at this side of the artist's life and work. It offers insight into the artist's unique vision with the help of his most beautiful paintings and excerpts from his own writings. We see that flowers such as the iris and the sunflower served as emblems of self-identity and that the fields were a testament to the cycle of life and a warning of the inevitability of death. The book offers a portrait of the joy and pleasure that Van Gogh experienced in his life and expressed with his brush.

Описание: In 1804, at the dawn of the French Empire, there were no more than a handful of Spanish paintings in public collections in France. During the course of the
19th century, however, French collectors and museums assembled substantial holdings of works by such Spanish masters as Velazquez, El Greco, Zurbaran, Murillo and Goya. At the
same time, French writers and artists - among them Delacroix, Gericault, Courbet, Millet, Bonnat, Degas, and, especially, Manet - came to understand, appreciate and even emulate
Spanish painting of the Golden Age.
This volume features over 150 works by French and Spanish artists, charting the development of this cultural influence and mapping a
fascinating shift in the paradigm of painting: from Idealism to Realism, from Italy to Spain, from Renaissance to Baroque. Above all, it demonstrates how direct contact with Spanish
painting fired the imagination of 19th-century French artists and brought about the triumph of Realism in the 1860s, and with it a foundation for modern art. American artists of the second
half of th
19th century often turned to Europe for training and inspiration.
Whistler, Cassatt, Eakins, Chase and Sargent all travelled to Spain for firsthand exposure to its artistic
heritage and experienced the thrill of discovering Spanish painting. Also included in this volume are works by American artists that reflect the pervasive influence of and taste for

Описание: The work of Manet is defined in this book - he was an artist who interpreted modern life with a fresh handling of colour and tone. Yet he craved official recognition and was dogged by notoriety. He rejected traditional conventions in paintings such as "Le Dejeuner sur l`herbe" and "Olympia".
