A propos de cet article

A nicely presented copy of this biographical exploration into the life and works of Danish sculptor of international fame, Bertel Thorvaldsen. Written in French. Collated complete with two beautifully engraved plates by F. Gaillard, which depict two of Thorvaldsen's most renowned sculptures; Venus and Mercury. With thirty-five delightfully produced woodcut vignettesby Carbonneau after designs by F. Gaillard. In Thorvaldsen's time, he was seen as the successor of master sculptor Antonio Canova. His strict adherence to classical norms has tended to estrange modern audiences. Among his other famous works are the statues of Nicolaus Copernicus and Jozef Poniatowski in Warsaw; the statue of Maximilian I in Munich; and the tomb monument of Pope Pius VII, the only work by a non-Italian in St. Peter's Basilica. Thorvaldsen was an outstanding representative of the Neoclassical period in sculpture. The poses and expressions of his figures are much more stiff and formal than those of Canova's. Thorvaldsen embodied the style of classical Greek art more than the Italian artist, he believed that only through the imitation of classical art pieces, could one become a truly great artist. Thorvaldsen's primary mastery was his feel for the rhythm of lines and movements. Nearly all his sculptures can be viewed from whatever angle without compromise of their impact. In addition, he had the ability to work in monumental size. Thorvaldsen's classicism was strict; nevertheless his contemporaries saw his art as the ideal. Condition: In a half calf binding with cloth covered boards and gilt detailing. Externally, sound, with only some very light rubbing, and minor cockling to the rear board. Internally, firmly bound and nicely bright. Some light instances of foxing. Overall: VERY GOOD. N° de réf. du libraire 042986
