A propos de cet article

28cm. 576pp, with 400 b/w and col ills. Volume 6, from the series "Les Orientalistes". Depuis la première édition de La Vie et l'oeuvre d'Eugène Fromentin de 1987, qui a reçu le prix Roger Bonniot de l'Académie de Saintonge en 1988, plus d'une soixantaine de tableaux et dessins d'Eugène Fromentin sont apparus sur le marché. Pour compléter la Correspondance générale du peintre-écrivain, parue en 1995, et sa biographie intellectuelle (Beaux- Arts et belles-lettres : La Vie d'Eugène Fromentin), parue en 2006, les auteurs, James Thompson et Barbara Wright, ont préparé une édition révisée et augmentée de la version originale de cet ouvrage. Ces nouvelles images sont accompagnées d'un texte mis à jour et du remplacement d'un certain nombre d'illustrations en noir et blanc par des illustrations en couleur. De plus, James Thompson et Barbara Wright ont joint en appendice un catalogue illustré de la quasi-totalité de la collection de dessins, demeurée plus ou moins intacte dans les archives familiales, depuis la mort d'Eugène Fromentin en 1876 jusqu'à la disparition de son arrière-petit-fils, Erik Dahl, en 1986. Cette nouvelle édition permettra l'étude détaillée de l'élaboration des grandes toiles orientalistes de Fromentin, tout en éclairant son talent de dessinateur. Cloth. N° de réf. du libraire 15067

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Since the first edition of this book, La Vie et l'oeuvre d'Eugene Fromentin, published in 1987 and awarded the Roger Bonniot Prize by the Academie de Saintonge in 1988, over sixty paintings and drawings by Eugene Fromentin have appeared on the market. To complete the Correspondance generale of this painter and writer, published in 1995, and his intellectual biography, Beaux-arts et Belles-lettres : la vie d'Eugene Fromentin, published in 2006, the authors, James Thompson and Barbara Wright, have produced a revised and enlarged version of their work. To accompany these new images, the text has been up-dated and some black and white illustrations have been replaced by color. Furthermore, James Thompson and Barbara Wright have added, as an Appendix, an illustrated catalogue of nearly all the drawings in the family collection, a collection which remained virtually intact from the death of Eugene Fromentin in 1876 until that of his great-grandson, Erik Dahl, in 1986. This catalogue bears testimony to a unique collection, before its dispersal. Since their authenticity is beyond question, the items in this catalogue constitute a valuable resource in the identification of future paintings which may surface on the market. This new edition will provide the basis for detailed genetical studies of the major Orientalist paintings by Fromentin, while illuminating his talents as a draughtsman.
