From Library Journal
Nineteenth-century French artist Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, who spent a good deal of time in Italy, interpreted the classical with rhythmic grace in his drawings and paintings and exhibited an underlying line that influenced Matisse, Picasso, and other great artists. Many of his seemingly "perfect" likenesses are, upon closer examination, disproportionate?the hands too large, the arms connected peculiarly to the shoulder?demonstrating Ingres's inclination to artifice, not to nature. In the appendix, Vigne, curator of the Musee Ingres in Montauban, France, shows that the artist was as much in control of his career as his work: Ingres's notebook inventories, including facsimiles, provide a mine of material for art historians. A bibliography, including many items in French, and an exhibition list prove the...

Portraits by Ingres: Image of an Epoch

From Library Journal
This catalog of the portraits of the 19th-century painter Ingres is a companion volume to the traveling exhibition sponsored by the National Gallery in London, the National Gallery in Washington, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. In the first major study on this subject, five scholars chart the chronology of Ingres the portraitist and seek to place this aspect of his oeuvre within the context of his career and, more broadly, within 19th-century European society and the history of portraiture. Chief influences in the portraits of Ingres include the classical tradition of his teacher, David and that of Renaissance artist, Raphael. Beautiful color and black-and-white reproductions illustrate both Ingres's oil paintings and graphite drawings. Recommended for academic art collections and for all...


Ingres in Fashion

Book Review
It can be argued that haute couture began in the first half of the 19th century; certainly, its vagaries were recorded for posterity by French portrait painter Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres in a wealth of richly detailed studies. For the fashion historian, Ingres's works offer visual insight into the burgeoning consumerism of the time and portray the men and, particularly, the women of society resplendent in their luxurious fabrics, intricate jewelry, and lavish accessories.

Aileen Ribeiro, head of dress at London's Courtauld Institute of Art, has written the exemplary Ingres in Fashion, in which she painstakingly describes Ingres's depiction of fashion as it reflects identity and status in mid-19th-century France. Ingres's dual obsessions--the precise and sumptuous reproductions of modish figures such as his 1853...

Review
"An intriguing review of the artistry of Ingres and subsequent reception to his works." --International Art Treasures Art Magazine

Book Description
Spanning his renunciation of the Salon in 1834 until his large retrospective at the crucial 1855 Universal Exposition, this book examines the critical writing and journalistic reportage on Jean-Auguste-Dominque Ingres. It demonstrates how Ingres shaped his career in the rapidly evolving art world of mid-nineteenth century Paris. While enjoying the benefits of his affiliation with the Academy, the artist also pursued certain modes of presentation, most notably the single-artist exhibition and illustrated monograph, through which he distanced himself from the embattled world of artistic officialdom.

Fingering Ingres

Book Description
This book is a reassessment of the role of Ingres studies in the writing of nineteenth-century art history. The title Fingering Ingres refers to a remark of Jean Cassou, the French art critic, political militant and founding director of the Musee National d'Art Moderne, in which he wrote of Ingres' 'caressing' his materials with the tip of his 'finger-nail'. The volume pays tribute to Ingres' historiographical enigma in bringing together a set of essays that scratch at and perhaps puncture the surface of his received framings. Ranging from the scrupulous study of Ingres' incapacity to allow himself a finished oeuvre, to the artificial construction of his conflict with Delacroix, to a radical re-thinking of his role in cultural modernity, the essays pick out the textures of a crucial mytheme of nineteenth-century French...
