A collection of essays, paintings, and personal correspondence celebrates the life and legacy of Frederic Bazille, an instrumental but largely unsung iImpressionist talent. The paintings of Frederic Bazille (1841 1870) were rediscovered after the turn of the nineteenth-century by art critics and curators who credited the artist as an important pioneer in the development of Impressionism. Tracing his artistic career from its inception including his links to Manet, Monet, Renoir, and Cezanne this book unveils Bazille s complete painted works. Organized both thematically and chronologically, this monograph also features facsimiles of the artist s personal letters interspersed throughout the book on special paper inserts, and it is completed with a comprehensive bibliography, a list of works, and maps detailing his life in Montpellier and Paris. The book accompanies an exhibition at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. from April 9 to July 9, 2017."

A thought-provoking analysis of Frederic Bazille that sheds new light on the origins and dilemmas of modernist painting.Studio companion of Monet and Renoir, protege of Courbet, and friend of Manet, Frederic Bazille (1841-1870) is more often remembered for the financial assistance he provided to future Impressionists than for his own vivid and often unsettling work. In this first complete book in English devoted to Bazille, Dianne Pitman seeks to situate this often overlooked artist within the complex and contradictory art world of the 1860s. In the process, she greatly refines our understanding of the modernist tradition.Pitman examines a series of major paintings and critical essays by Bazille and his contemporaries and frames them within the modernist discourse about purity, or respecting the proper limits of the medium. She stresses the problem of pose -- the way in which painted subjects seem to respond to the artist's presence and the implied presence of the beholder -- and explores his responses to the new medium of photography, the idea of painting without subject matter, the burden of tradition, and the problematic of self-portraiture. As these themes again come to the fore in much of the most controversial art and criticism of the late twentieth century, this study also represents an important contribution to the ongoing debate concerning the oppositions and continuities between modernism and postmodernism.

Cesar Grafla's work critically examines the continual rebirth of cultural romances on the part of literaiy Intellectuals. Grafia's disdain for contrived rejections of modernity and for grand destructive gestures is combined with his intense appreciation of the romantic sensibility. Fact and Symbol embodies Grafta’s views of the enterprise of cultural sociology in which both words are given equal play. This book consists of seven essays. Five shorter pieces on the relation of art to American democracy are bracketed by two long essays, the first on the literaiy critique of modern life, the last on Spanish American cultural nationalism. Among the temes covered throughout the book are attitudes prevalent during the post-romantic era, the French impressionists, art museums, the transformation of the industrial and commercial elite of America, and Spanish-American literary Utopians. In a new Introduction, written especially for this edition, Marc Galanter outlines Graiia’s ideas and explains what he was aiming to do when he originally wrote these essays. Fact and Symbol presents Graiia’s unique viewpoint and will be enjoyed by scholars of art and literature, as well as sociologists. One can well appreciate why this book was nominated for a National Book Award on its original release. It is a pioneering achievement in the sociology of culture.

"This handsome publication, which accompanies a major exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, is a lively and engaging account of the artistic scene in Paris in the 1860s, the years that witnessed the beginnings of Impressionism. For the first time the interactions and relationships among the group of painters who became known as the Impressionists are examined without the overworn art historical polarities commonly evoked: academic versus avant-garde, classicist versus romantic, realist versus impressionist. A host of strong personalities contributed to this history, and their style evolved into a new way of looking at the world. These artists wanted above all to give an impression of truth and to have an impact on or even to shock the public. And they wanted to measure up to or surpass their elders. This complex and rich environment is presented here - the grand old men and the young turks encounter each other, the Salon pontificates, and the new generation moves fitfully ahead, benignly but always with determination." "Origins of Impressionism gives a day-by-day, year-by-year study of the genesis of an epoch-making style." "Bibliographies and provenances are provided for each of the almost two hundred works in the exhibition, and there is an illustrated chronology. With more than two hundred superb colorplates, this informative survey is an essential work for both the general reader and the scholar."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

This Art Book with Foreword by Maria Tsaneva contains 65 selected reproductions of paintings and drawings from Jean Frédéric Bazille.Jean Frédéric Bazille was a French Impressionist artist. Many of his paintings are examples of figure compositions in which Bazille placed the subject figure within a landscape. His work is of interest for its exploration of the effects of light on flesh tones. Much of his work retained a high finish and dark palette (e.g. Black Woman and Peonies, 1870). He was also a portraitist and recorder of the Impressionist scene. Bazille became interested in painting after seeing some works of Eugène Delacroix. His family agreed to let him study painting, but only if he also studied medicine. As a student in Paris he befriended Monet, Renoir, and Sisley. Attracted by the modernist tendencies of avant-garde art, they abandoned the studio in favor of direct observation of nature and gradually invented impressionism. From 1865 to 1866, he shared a studio with Monet and then the following year, shared a studio with Renoir. The work of Bazille was ended by his untimely death during the war of 1870.

Painting with light and color On April 15th, 1874, in the Parisian studio of photographer Nadar, was the opening of the first group exhibition that was uninhibited by government interference and the dictates of an official selection committee. This date has gone down in the annals of art history because it marks the birth of the Impressionism. Impressionistic paintings now rank among the most popular works of art and are the pride of any museum or collection worldwide. However, in 1874 the public response to the exhibition, and to Impressionist painting, was not adoration but rather shock and even outrage. The Impressionists and the succeeding Neo-Impressionists were avant-gardist and revolutionary, paving the way for modern art. Present-day viewers, hardly realizing this revolutionary potential, can be content to enjoy the aesthetic of light and color. Artists featured in detail: Frederic Bazille, Marie Braquemond, Gustave Caillebotte, Mary Cassat, Edgar Degas, Vincent Van Gogh, Armand Guillaumin, Max Liebermann, Claude Monet, Berthe Morisot, Guiseppe de Nittis, Camille Pissarro, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Medardo Rosso, Giovanni Segantini, John Singer Sargent, Georges Seurat, Paul Signac, Walter Richard Sickert, Alfred Sisley, Max Slevogt, Fritz von Uhde, Federico Zandomeneghi About the Series: Each book in TASCHEN's Basic Genre Series features: a detailed illustrated introduction plus a timeline of the most important political, cultural and social events that took place during that period a selection of the most important works of the epoch, each of which is presented on a 2-page spread with a full-page image and with an interpretation of the respective work, plus a portrait and brief biography of the artist approximately 100 colour illustrations with explanatory captions

“I paint what I see and not what it pleases others to see.” What other words than these of Édouard Manet, seemingly so different from the sentiments of Monet or Renoir, could best define the Impressionist movement? Without a doubt, this singularity was explained when, shortly before his death, Claude Monet wrote: “I remain sorry to have been the cause of the name given to a group the majority of which did not have anything Impressionist.” In this work, Nathalia Brodskaïa examines the contradictions of this late 19th-century movement through the paradox of a group who, while forming a coherent ensemble, favoured the affirmation of artistic individuals. Between academic art and the birth of modern, non-figurative painting, the road to recognition was long. Analysing the founding elements of the movement, the author follows, through the works of each of the artists, how the demand for individuality gave rise to modern painting.

Impressionists and Politics is an accessible introduction to the current debates about Impressionism. Was the artistic movement really radical and innovative? Is the term "Impressionism" itself an adequate characterization of the movement of painters and critics that took the mid-nineteenth century Paris art world by storm? By providing an historical background and context, the book places the Impressionists' roots in wider social and economic transformations and explains its militancy, both aesthetic and political. Impressionists and Politics is a concise history of the movement, from its youthful inception in the 1860s, through to its final years of recognition and then crisis.

The Impressionists need little introduction. The names of Pissarro, Manet, Degas, Sisley, Cézanne, Monet and Renoir are familiar to everyone and their paintings remain highly popular over a hundred years after they first scandalized the Parisian art world. This book recounts, in detail, the fascinating and moving story of the Impressionist fellowship - the interwoven histories of the seven leading painters of the group - and sets them in the context of the period in which they lived and worked. The superb colour plates mark the lasting achievement of this small band of friends in the face of prolonged social upheaval and personal hardship.
