Rodin
Catherine Lampert
0300038321
Sept 1987
Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
"His art showed a radical absence of decorum," states Lampert in this combined monograph and catalog of a recent exhibit of Auguste Rodin's sculpture and drawings at the Hayward Gallery, London. Generally acknowledged the foremost sculptor of the 19th century, Rodin had enormous influence on all who followed him. Lampert, who considers some of the artist's line drawings and gouaches to be among the "finest and most quintessentially sculptural works on paper ever made," here concentrates on the "cross-fertilization between his drawing and sculpture." The book includes informative data on the 270 entries in the show. There are 400 illustrations, including some photographs never before reproduced. An enlightening one-page article on Rodin and photography ends the catalog. Required reading for Rodin specialists. Gloria...

The Complete Review, August 2004
"reads almost like a lyrical essay....fantastical, a work of the imagination that sees.....much beyond the everyday and real."

Book Description
Sculptor Auguste Rodin once wrote that "one has only to look at a human face to find a soul, no feature deceives; hypocrisy is as transparent as sincerity. The inclining of the brow, the least furrowing of a look may reveal the -secrets of the heart." Rodin was fortunate to have as his -secretary Rainer Maria Rilke, one of the most sensitive poets of our time. These essays discussing Rodin's work and development as an artist are as revealing of Rilke as they are of his subject. Written in 1903 and 1907, these meditations mark the entry of the poet into the world of letters. The book sheds light on the profound psychic...

Auguste Rodin: Watercolors
Auguste Rodin
377571510X
January 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Auguste Rodin's extraordinary watercolors are generally less familiar to the public than his grandiose bronzes which set standards for later generations of sculptors. Yet these studies, executed with apparent ease, are no less significant as works of art--indeed, their enthusiastic naturalism and openness make them almost more timeless and modern than his sculptures. In addition to preliminary watercolor studies for his 3-dimensional works, this section of Rodin's oeuvre includes a large number of erotic silhouettes, some of them quite explicit: cheerful, warm-hearted sketches with which the artist unabashedly papered the walls of his studio. This small volume presents a delightful selection of rarely-exhibited yet enchanting watercolors from the artist's estate, administered by the Musée Rodin in Paris. I invent...

Temple of Texts

From Publishers Weekly
Gass loves words. His prose is extravagant, lush, sometimes overly florid (as when he talks of Flann O'Brien's death on "the first Fools' Day of April, 1966"), and in this new collection, his words have a tendency to get in the way of his subject matter. Which is a shame, because Gass, a novelist and award-winning critic, writes about books and authors often ignored by mainstream readers: Rabelais, Robert Burton, Elias Canetti. Then again, Gass doesn't write for the mainstream. He is the strangest of academic amalgams: a self-professed lover of the avant-garde as represented by Gertrude Stein, Flann O'Brien and Robert Coover, while at the same time he extols the virtues of what he calls "the classics." His definition of classic is, to be sure, expansive, but he applies an old-fashioned standard to all literature,...

"reads almost like a lyrical essay....fantastical, a work of the imagination that sees.....much beyond the everyday and real." --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Book Description
During the early 1900s, the great German poet lived and worked in Paris with Auguste Rodin. In a work as revealing of its author as it is of his famous subject, Rainer Maria Rilke examines Rodin's life and work, and explains the often elusive connection between the creative forces that drive timeless literature and great art. Rilke served for several years as Rodin's secretary -- living in the sculptor's workshops, watching the shaping of his creations, and discussing his views and ideas. Written in 1903 and 1907, these essays about the master's work and...

From Independent Publisher
The ideas and ideals of Carlyle and Ruskin, the taste of William Morris, exposed to the rich landscapes and even-tempered climate of the West became the California style, an exuberant expression of the arts-and-crafts movement singular to its time and location. This reprint of a 1974 exhibition catalog surveying the turn-of-the-century creative activity in California remains the single best source for information about the activities and attitudes of the period. It is a record of optimism and experiment, enthusiasm and imagination in which the arts were a part of daily life and an affirmation of the value of the work of man rather than machine. It is a record, too, of a time in which the beginnings of the environmental and wilderness-protection movements became a part of the consciousness of the inhabitants....

From Publishers Weekly
Butler's biography of the legendary sculptor draws extensively from the artist's own voluminous correspondence. Copyright 1996 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From Kirkus Reviews
An insightful life of Auguste Rodin (1840-1917) that's based on many previously unpublished letters and a fresh interpretation of familiar facts. Butler (Art/UMass at Boston) is especially perceptive about Rodin's relationships--how they inspired, energized, and influenced his art--particularly his relations with the women to whom he claimed he ``owed everything'': his sister, who died when he was 21; his companion of 51 years, Rose Beuret, whom his biographer, Judith Cladel, arranged for him to marry when they were both near death; Camille Claudel, the student whom he reputedly drove mad;...

Architecture
"Like Rodin, the architect has sculpted a beguiling space that begs viewers to enter and revel in its presence as much as its absence."

Book Description
The Rodin Museum in Seoul, Korea, designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox to house two sculptures by Auguste Rodin, has been hailed as an architectural tour-de-force. Its undulating walls, entirely made of translucent glass, create a jewel like, serene space far removed from the bustle of the Seoul business district, instead creating a place that blurs the differences between West and East, between art and commerce, and between the 19th and the 21th century. This book outlines the creative design process, from conception through realization, involved in creating this unusual museum. It includes numerous preparatory sketches, detailed...

From Library Journal
Each of the attractively designed, compact, and well-illustrated hardcover books in this series deals with a specific facet of an artist's career. As with any series, the quality of the titles vary?though the translations from the German are all dotted with odd grammatical constructions and the occasional ambiguity. Sagner-Duchting's discussion of Claude Monet's work at Giverny is a good introduction to the artist's important contribution to Impressionism as well as a careful analysis of his great series of grain stacks and water lilies. Partsch focuses on Klimt's relationships with women?both as an artist and as a man?offering a good, detailed account of Klimt and Emilie Floge (a fashion designer and perhaps his true love). The one disappointment is the work on Rodin and Claudel. Schmoll is defensive about the...
