Noir: The Romance of Black in 19th-Century French Drawings and
Due to the technological advances of the nineteenth century, an abundance of black drawing media exploded onto the market. Charcoal, conte crayon, and fabricated black chalks and crayons; fixatives; various papers; and many lifting devices gave rise to an unprecedented amount of experimentation. Indeed, innovation became the rule, as artists developed their own unique—and often experimental—processes. The exploration of black media in drawing is inextricably bound up with the exploration of black in prints, and this volume presents an integrated study that rises above specialization in one over the other. Noir brings together such diverse artists as Francisco de Goya, Maxime Lalanne, Gustave Courbet, Odilon Redon, and Georges Seurat and explores their inventive works on paper. Sidelining labels like “conservative” or “avant-garde,” the essays in this book employ all the tools that art history and modern conservation have given us, inviting the reader to look more broadly at the artists’ methods and materials. This volume accompanies an eponymous exhibition on view at the J. Paul Getty Museum from February 9 to May 15, 2016.

The Artist as Animal in Nineteenth-Century French Literature (Palgrave Studies in Animals and
The Artist as Animal in Nineteenth-Century French Literature traces the evolution of the relationship between artists and animals in fiction from the Second Empire to the fin de siècle. This book examines examples of visual literature, inspired by the struggles of artists such as Edouard Manet and Vincent van Gogh. Edmond and Jules de Goncourt’s Manette Salomon (1867), Émile Zola’s Therèse Raquin (1867), Jules Laforgue’s “At the Berlin Aquarium” (1895) and “Impressionism” (1883), Octave Mirbeau’s In the Sky (1892-1893) and Rachilde’s L’Animale (1893) depict vanguard painters and performers as being like animals, whose unique vision revolted against stifling traditions. Juxtaposing these literary works with contemporary animal theory (McHugh, Deleuze, Guattari and Derrida), zoo studies (Berger, Rothfels and Lippit) and feminism (Donovan, Adams and Haraway), Claire Nettleton explores the extent to which the nineteenth-century dissolution of the human subject contributed to a radical, modern aesthetic. Utilizing these interdisciplinary methodologies, Nettleton argues that while inducing anxiety regarding traditional humanist structures, the “artist-animal,” an embodiment of artistic liberation within an urban setting, is, at the same time, a paradigmatic t...

Bourgeois fashions (including lace-trimmed garments for both sexes) are presented as well, along with the more modest attire of chambermaids, milkmaids, and shepherdesses. Images of such historic figures as King Henri VI, Madame de Pompadour, Madame du Barry, and Marie Antoinette complete a splendid collection.A valuable reference for costume designers and fashion historians, this beautifully reproduced volume will also serve as a grand treat for fashion enthusiasts.

Borealis En Salon: 19th Century French Music for
The end of the 19th century was an exciting era of musical development and innovation. Composers and performers were expanding their artistic boundaries to create new musical forms and more vivid expressions. It was a particularly significant turning point for woodwind players because the technical improvements to their instruments made it possible to perform with greater virtuosity and enhanced tone. Composers were freed from the former demands of nobleman s patronage and restrictions of the church and began to write serious chamber music for wind ensembles, using each instrument as a fully integrated voice. The French were bold leaders in the transformation of wind playing, especially the Paris Conservatory, which encouraged new solo compositions and prizes for wind instruments. Organizations such as the Société de Musique de Chambre pour Instruments à Vent were formed to encourage this new repertoire and to showcase the virtuosity of the best players. The freshness and inspiration of this era still shines through the music, making it popular with audiences and a mainstay of our repertoire. The works on this disc encompass both the serious and the lighthearted styles of the French salon music and provide a satisfying combination of color, warmth and style. The Borealis Wind ...
