The first large-scale book devoted to the topic, this handsome volume features portraits that shed light on Goya and his subjects, as well as on the politically turbulent and culturally dynamic era in which they lived. Whether portraying royalty, philosophers, military men, or friends, these works are memorable both for the insight they provide into the relationship between artist and sitter, and for their penetrating psychological depth. Xavier Bray traces Goya's career from his beginnings at the Madrid court of Charles III to his final years in Bordeaux, played out against the backdrop of war with France and the social, political, and cultural shift of the Enlightenment. More than 60 remarkable portraits, including drawings and miniatures, reveal the full range of Goya's technical and stylistic achievements, while also depicting sitters with a previously unparalleled humanity. His break with traditional, late-18th-century conventions allowed him to achieve a new modernity in portraiture that paved the way for artists such as Matisse and Picasso.

Автор: Bailey Название: Renoir - Impressionism and Full-Length Painting ISBN: 0300181086 ISBN-13(EAN): 9780300181081 Издательство: Yale University Press Рейтинг: Цена: 26130 T Наличие на складе: Поставка под заказ. Описание: Throughout his long working life, Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919) produced large-format portraits and subject pictures. From the mid-1870s to the mid-1880s-the decade of Impressionism-his vertical, grand-scale canvases were among the artist's most daring and ambitious presentations of contemporary life and fashion. Today they rank among the masterpieces of Impressionism. This stunning book offers fresh insights into Renoir's complex ambitions as a young artist, when he submitted works to both the avant-garde impressionist exhibitions and the official Salon. While painting in the new impressionist style, Renoir remained committed to the full-length format, which was eschewed by most of his fellow impressionists as too traditional. This format afforded Renoir the opportunity to devote himself to the heroic painting of everyday life, and also to linger on the finest details of his figures' fashionable costumes and accessories. Ten iconic canvases display the rich variety of this artist's painterly technique. They reveal the sheer virtuosity of his brushwork in creating silk, lace, mink, and taffeta for shimmering ball gowns, sumptuous furs, chic Parisian day dresses, and glamorous theatrical costumes. These paintings capture the faces and fashions of Renoir's Paris. Extensively illustrated, the book draws upon contemporary criticism, literature, and archival documents to explore the motivation behind Renoir's full-length figure paintings, and technical studies of the canvases shed new light on the artist's working methods.

The exhibition and its accompanying catalogue explore the abiding themes of still life across the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries: the fruit piece, the game piece, kitchen and banquet still lifes, the flower painting, musical instruments, the cabinet of curiosities, and the trompe-l'oeil. The diversity of artistic treatment of these themes in different countries will be shown through related works, such as the fruit still lifes of the female artists Louise Moillon and Fede Galizia or the kitchen scenes by Jean-Simeon Chardin and Luis Melendez. Other artists who cultivated this genre and who are also represented in the exhibition and in the catalogue include Juan Sanchez Cotan, Juan van der Hamen, Pieter Claesz, Juan Zurbaran, Rembrandt van Rijn, Antonio de Pereda, Nicolas Largillierre, Jean-Baptiste Oudry, Luis de Melendez and Francisco de Goya. The exhibition has been made possible due to the commitment of the many lending institutions, private collectors and museums, such as the National Gallery of Art in Washington, The Metropolitam Museum in New York, The Louvre Museum, The Prado Museum, The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, The Mauritshuis in The Hague, The National Gallery in London and the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, among so many others. This volume allows an insight into the theme, through the essays and the individual studies of all paintings, written by such scholars as Peter Cherry, John Loughman and Lesley Stevenson. Volume II, devoted to still-life painting in the 19th and 20th centuries, is due for publication in October 2011.
Автор: De Font Reaulx Dominique Название: Painting and Photography ISBN: 2080201328 ISBN-13(EAN): 9782080201324 Издательство: Thames & Hudson Цена: 17110 T Наличие на складе: Поставка под заказ. Описание: This pioneering study offers detailed analysis of the impact of photography’s birth on the classical art form of painting. Photography divided opinion in its early years; some saw it as an invaluable tool in the enhancement of artistic reproductions, while many believed it to be too mechanical to be associated with the grand concept of “Art.” Covering portraiture, landscapes, nudes, tableaux vivants, and still lifes, this richly-illustrated volume showcases some of the earliest photographic works alongside paintings that challenged, resisted, or were influenced by the emergence of photography in the first half of the nineteenth century. Author Dominique de Font-Reaulx examines the birth of photography in this period, its first forays into the public domain, and the organizations set up to preserve and defend it against a raft of criticism. The influence of figures such as Daguerre (creator of the daguerreotype, and originally a painter himself), Niepce, and Hippolyte Bayard is charted, as the idea of accurately replicating images seen by the human eye gradually became a very real possibility. Imperfections, for so long erased by painters seeking to capture an idealized version of the body, were laid bare by an invention that captured even the minutest details. Featuring an engaging text accompanied by a rich selection of illustrations, Painting and Photography explores not only photography’s fight for recognition, but its impact on painters of the day, challenging them to devise new ways of capturing the human form.
