Chopin's Funeral
Benita Eisler
0375708685
June 2004
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Biographer Eisler, whose last book was on Byron, has moved to much more heavily trodden ground with this one, and it is to her credit that she manages to make the brief arc of the exiled Polish composer's life so affecting. She begins with a journalistic close-up of Chopin's funeral, which ironically was a lavish affair, though in his last months of sickness he was neglected by most of his society friends. Eisler then proceeds to the familiar story of his triumphant arrival on the Paris scene and the swift liaison with the notorious George Sand. Wisely skipping over the couple's disastrous and endlessly dramatized winter together on Majorca, Eisler focuses her well-researched attention on the closing years of the composer's life. She has an excellent chapter on Chopin's unhappy time in England and Scotland; and...

This is a comprehensive overview with excellent illustrations of the works of the great French master Eugene Delacroix. Having been one of the leading painters of French Romanticism, Delacroix is famous for capturing emotionally charged scenes from the Orient, back then a world commonly mysticized. His harmonious use of color and his unique artistic freedom have made him a role model for modern masters like Monet, van Gogh and Picasso.

Delacroix Pastels

Hardcover

From Publishers Weekly
Although Eugene Delacroix never exhibited his pastels and regarded them mainly as a private activity, the French Romantic artist exploited pastel for his own creative ends, producing innovative chromatic and textural effects, reveling in Oriental exotica and exploring tonalities of light and color. The 60 pastels reproduced in color in this attractive album and dating from the 1820s through the 1860s embrace the full range of his subject matter--portraits, nudes, North African scenes, tigers in the wild, nature studies, ancient Greek history, mythological and religious scenes as well as preliminary studies for The Death of Sardanapalus and Women of Algiers in Their Apartment. In contrast to his highly dramatic, often violent oils, his pastels reveal his interest in being true to nature, in mastering the structure...

Review
'The cultural-historical approach to these highly aestheticised paintings, particularly in the context of the Restoration, is welcome and there is some fine visual analysis of the individual works. ... Fraser's book has much of value to say about the reception of Delacroix in the 1820s and the historical circumstances of producing, viewing, purchasing and interpreting contemporary art during the Restoration.' The Burlington Magazine

Book Description
This volume contains the most representative and informative selection available of the letters of Eugene Delacroix, perhaps the most brilliant visual artist of the French Romantic movement. As edited by Jean Stewart, they are divided into four sections: the first letters were written in his teens and early twenties, and show the essential loneliness that would dominate his life; the second, stretching to the age of 35, detail the travels that indelibly marked him; the third group dates from his return to France in 1833, telling of his grand commissions and of his relationships with George Sand and Mme. de Forget; and last are the letters from his final years, a time of official acceptance and relations with such notable figures as Stendhal and Merimee. Intelligently edited and fluently translated, these "Selected...

The Struggle with the Angel: Delacroix, Jacob, and the God of Good and Evil
Jean-Paul Kauffmann

October 2002
Hardcover

From Library Journal
Kauffmann (Black Room at Longwood), a foreign correspondent who was imprisoned in Beirut from 1985 to 1988, here meditates on Delacroix's Jacob Wrestling with the Angel, a mural in the church of Saint-Sulpice, Paris. In his winding search for the place of humankind in the eternal battle of good and evil, Kauffmann consults a cast of characters associated with the church and the painting who offer their views on what the painting means to them. The symbolism gets a little heavyhanded and even repetitive, and some discussion of the artist is based on speculation. But the poignancy of this work comes to the fore when the reader realizes that this isn't art history at all but rather a memoir-of a church, of the biblical Jacob, and of the author, who tries to come to terms with his time as a prisoner in...
