Jean-Baptiste Carpeux
Anne Middleton Wagner
0300047517
Sept 1990
Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
French sculptor Carpeaux is perhaps best known, on the one hand, for his joyously erotic group of "The Dance" done for the Paris Opera in the second half of the 1860s and, on the other hand, for the powerfully anguished group of "Ugolino and His Sons," completed in 1861. These and the other works that make up his richly complex oeuvre are discussed in Wagner's monograph, the most substantial and approachable treatment in many decades of the artist's work, life, and his social, political, and cultural milieu. Recommended for academic art history collections as well as for museum libraries. Jeffrey Weidman, Oberlin Coll.

Chardin
Pierre Rosenberg
0300083483
Apr 2000
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
Pierre Rosenberg, the Chardin scholar and President-Director of the Musée du Louvre, had one overriding goal in mind when assembling the exhibition of which Chardin is the catalog: "to present the artist's finest paintings, the most perfect, the most harmonious, the paintings that leave nothing to be desired." The 99 paintings reproduced in this book are a testimony to the success of that endeavor. There are also six essays by Chardin experts and an extensively researched chronology.

Chardin's still lifes and genre scenes have been deeply appreciated for centuries for what Rosenberg calls "the grave, silent quality that encourages the onlooker to silent reverie." He is incapable of untruth: his subjects--jugs and bowls, glasses, cherries, housemaids, boys at play, dogs and cats--are painted without a touch of...



Convex Analysis and Minimization Algorithms I
Jean-Baptiste Hiriart-Urruty
0387568506
Nov 1993
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Convex Analysis may be considered as a refinement of standard calculus, with equalities and approximations replaced by inequalities. As such, it can easily be integrated into a graduate study curriculum. Minimization algorithms, more specifically those adapted to non-differentiable functions, provide an immediate application of convex analysis to various fields related to optimization and operations research. These two topics making up the title of the book, reflect the two origins of the authors, who belong respectively to the academic world and to that of applications. Part I can be used as an introductory textbook (as a basis for courses, or for self-study); Part II continues this at a higher technical level and is addressed more to specialists, collecting results that so far have not appeared in books.

Jean-Baptiste Say and the Classical Canon in Economics
Samuel Hollander
041532338X
Feb 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
This book explores the perceived paradigmatic conflict within British classical economics between the so called "Ricardo School" and the contemporary French Economics of Jean-Baptiste Say.

Samuel Hollander provides the reader with extensive evidence, utilizing all editions of Say's main texts and his lesser-known writings, in order to demonstrate Say's adherence to much of Ricardian theory. The book focuses on selected doctrinal issues and the surrounding debates including:

* Value and distribution with extension to growth theory
* Real income and its measurement with implications for trade and taxation
* "Law of Markets"

This intriguing book will interest all serious historians of economic thought and will find a place on the bookshelves of many economists across the world.
