French Paintings in The Metropolitan Museum of Art from the Early Eighteenth Century through the Revolution
French Paintings in The Metropolitan Museum of Art
This authoritative book surveys the remarkable collection of 18th-century French paintings at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in the context of the institutions that governed the visual arts in the 1700s—the Académie Royale de Peinture et de Sculpture, the Académie de France à Rome, and the Paris Salon. The works catalogued feature stunning examples by leading painters of the period, including Antoine Watteau, Jean Siméon Chardin, François Boucher, Joseph Siffred Duplessis, Jean-Baptiste Greuze, Hubert Robert, Jacques Louis David, the Van Blarenberghes, and François Gérard. Katharine Baetjer provides an incisive history of the Académie Royale, its formation, principles, and regulations, and explores the beginnings of public art discourse in France. Organized chronologically by artists’ birth years, the book includes a short biography of each artist and in-depth discussions of individual paintings that incorporate the most up-to-date scholarship, while numerous comparative illustrations provide essential context.

Art in Detail: 100 Masterpieces
Art in Detail: 100
A comprehensive yet accessible sourcebook for curators and amateurs alike that examines the finer points of 100 well-known works of artGreat paintings cannot be fully understood in a single encounter. Art lovers want to revisit and reconsider the masterpieces again and again throughout their lives, perceiving in greater depth and possibly modifying their value judgments every time they look at a work. Viewing a painting as a whole is a perfectly acceptable method of interacting with art, but a deeper understanding can only be gained by analyzing the painting in detail.Art in Detail spotlights these finer points that even connoisseurs may not pick up on quickly or perhaps at all. It covers all the minutiae that a quick glance will almost certainly fail to reveal. These include subtle internal details, such as hidden symbols and artistic tricks employed by the painter to achieve particular effects. In addition, Susie Hodge writes intelligently and informatively about relevant external influences on the artist―everything from the broad socio-economic context in which he or she flourished, to smaller local difficulties, such as the level of air pollution at the time the painting was created. This book examines 100 paintings from artists such as Pollock, Courbet, Monet, Mondrian, El...

Once Upon a Time in the West: Shooting a Masterpiece
Once Upon a Time in the West: Shooting
"Once Upon a Time in the West was the movie that made me consider filmmaking."–Quentin TarantinoSergio Leone's film Once Upon a Time in the Westset out to be the ultimate Western―a celebration of the power of classic Hollywood cinema, a meditation on the making of America and a lament for the decline of one of the most cherished film genres in the form of a "dance of death." With this film, Leone said a fond farewell to the noisy and flamboyant world of the Italian Western, which he had created with A Fistful of Dollars and sequels , and aimed for something much more ambitious―an exploration of the relationship between myth ("Once Upon a Time..."), history ("...in the West") and his own autobiography as an avid film-goer. This would be a horse opera in which the arias aren't sung, they are stared. Once Upon a Time has since inspired several generations of filmmakers worldwide. Its combination of "film about film" with an angry historical epic, told with great style, has resonated for half a century, and its reputation has steadily grown. This book, by the world-renowned authority on Sergio Leone, Christopher Frayling, includes revealing personal interviews with all the key players involved in the movie (in front of the camera and behind it) a wealth of never-before-publishe...
