Breitner

Between 1893 and 1896 George Hendrik Breitner (1857-1923) painted 13 pictures of a girl wearing a red, white or blue kimono. His model was Geesje Kwak, only 16 when she posed for the first time. In 2016 the Rijksmuseum presented all kimono girls together for the first time. This was a unique opportunity to study the making of these iconic masterworks.

La Parisienne in cinema

Chic, sophisticated, seductive, and enigmatic, the Parisienne possesses a je ne sais quoi which makes her difficult to define. Who or what is the Parisienne and how she is depicted in cinema is the subject of this new and exciting book. In the first book-length publication to explore la Parisienne in cinema, Chaplin expands on existing scholarship on the Parisienne type in fields such as art history, literature, and fashion history, and builds on scholarship on the films discussed to both enrich and offer new perspectives on these films. Accessible and wide-ranging, this interdisciplinary and lively work will be of immediate interest to students and researchers working in Film Studies and French Studies and the broader humanities as well as a general interest audience. It is also essential reading for cinephiles and Francophiles alike.

Hiding making   showing creation

The artist, at least according to Honoré de Balzac, is at work when he seems to be at rest; his labor is not labor but repose. This observation provides a model for modern artists and their relationship to both their place of work-the studio-and what they do there. Examining the complex relationship between process, product, artistic identity, and the artist's studio-in all its various manifestations-the contributors to this volume consider the dichotomy between conceptual and material aspects of art production. The various essays also explore the studio as a form of inspiration, meaning, function, and medium, from the nineteenth century up to the present.

Van Gogh to Mondrian

"The artistic work produced in the Netherlands a hundred years ago is characterized by enormous variety. Impressionism was still a strong influence, but young artists were exploring numerous other avenues as well. Some turned to new sources of inspiration such as Japanese art and symbolism, while others were pushing stylization to its limits. International schools were followed closely by the Dutch artists, many of whom stayed for months at a time in Paris, the South of France or London to study the new trends at close range. These developments, which roughly spanned the period 1885-1915, began with Van Gogh, and ended with Mondrian...This book explores the significance of this period of art on paper...The selection gives an excellent impression of the range of work produced on paper in the period around 1900."--back cover

Snapshot

"The advent of the Kodak camera in 1888 made photography accessible to amateurs as well as to professionals. Artists were not immune to its allure, and many began experimenting with the camera as a means of capturing images as studies for final works and of observing the world and the people in it. Snapshot investigates seven Post-Impressionist painters and printmakers: Pierre Bonnard, George Hendrik Breitner, Maurice Denis, Henri Evenepoel, Henri Riviere, Felix Vallotton, and Edouard Vuillard. Although celebrated for their works on canvas and paper, these artists also made many personal and informal snapshots. Depicting interiors, city streets, nudes, and portraits, these photographs were kept private and never exhibited. As a result, most have never been published. Juxtaposing personal photographs with the related paintings and prints by these Post-Impressionist artists, Snapshot offers a new perspective on early photography and on the synthesis of painting and photography at the end of the 19th century"--

Japonisme

Coined by a French art critic in 1876, the term Japonismewas used to describe the craze for all things Japanese. Van Gogh copied Ukiyo-e prints, and art nouveau potters introduced flowing, organic themes, first seen in Japanese ceramics. This book presents a broad survey of the West's extraordinary love affair with Japan, beginning with the first contacts in the sixteenth century, and culminating in the artistic frenzy that swept Europe and America in the second half of the nineteenth century. For the first time, Lionel Lambourne also uncovers the countercurrent of Western influence on Japan. The book reviews not only the fine and the decorative arts but also interior decoration, costume and fashion accessories, literature and the theatre, travel, and gardens and plants
