"The breadth and depth of the oeuvre of Theodore Gericault has been captured in this new volume by Nina Athanassoglou-Kallmayer... One of the most compelling features of the book is the way in which the author threads the shifting subjects of Gericault's art through the warp and weft of the political and social crises of France in the early 19th century."-The Art Newspaper "Handsomely produced... [An] important contribution to the vast literature on this complex and compelling artist... Extends the range of Gericault art-historical scholarship and interpretation... Selects judiciously from the range of new research to present Gericault as a 'pioneer modernist'... [An] engrossing account... With superb accompanying illustrations... Athanassoglou-Kallmyer's well-written volume is a comprehensive account which admirably combines some of the achievements of earlier scholarship with the most recent developments in Gericault studies."-The Burlington Magazine "Nina Athanassoglou-Kallmyer has digested recent scholarship and integrated it into a flowing narrative covering the artist's life and art... Describes Gericault's art and explains the motivations behind the artist very well. It also sets these in context while not overwhelming the reader with too much detail... For anyone already with an interest in Gericault this book makes an excellent survey."-Cassone.comReseña del editor:
A new monograph exploring the life and works of Theodore Gericault (1791-1824), an artist whose life, imagination and legacy continue to enthrall audiences, artists and critics alike. Gericault's small but varied oeuvre has consistently defied easy definition; the artist himself struggled throughout his short career with the conflicting demands of the grand Neo-classical style and radical Romanticism. He was drawn to subjects of drama and horror, painting gruesome scenes of life in France as Napoleon's Empire ceded to a restored Monarchy - few more shocking than the cannibalism among shipwrecked victims that inspired his masterpiece The Raft of the Medusa.Yet equally significant in his artistic production was a passion for the wild imagery of horses, which even dictated his choice of painting teacher and led to some of the greatest equestrian portraits and history paintings in French art. Gericault also took great interest in the depths of the human mind, which inspired his riveting portraits.In this incisive and comprehensive survey, Nina Athanassoglou-Kallmyer pays tribute to established Gericault scholarship, but also reassesses the career of an artist too easily miscast as the archetypal `tortured soul' of art-historical Romantic mythology. Athanassoglou-Kallmyer discusses all the artist's key paintings and drawings, with particular attention to the iconic Raft of the Medusa, the history of its production and its artistic afterlife up to the present day.

Buchbeschreibung Phaidon Press, 2009. Gebundene Ausgabe. Zustand: Neu. Neu Neuware, Importqualität, auf Lager, Sofortversand - This monograph explores the life and works of Théodore Géricault (1791 - 1824), whose compelling career and legacy continue to captivate audiences, artists, and critics alike. In her comprehensive survey, Nina Athanassoglou-Kallmyer pays tribute to established Géricault scholarship while reassessing the career of an artist too easily miscast as the archetypal 'tortured soul' of art-historical Romantic mythology. She examines Géricault's career in the context of France under the Restauration, during which Louis XVIII's controversial rule resulted in vigorous popular debate over civic structures, the political process, and even aesthetic categories. Géricault immersed himself in these polemics, taking an intense interest in the fait divers, or 'daily happenings', of his time. The author explores his interest in medical and psychiatric science (as exemplified by a series of portraits of mental patients), his empathy for the poor and dispossessed (the subject of numerous lithographs), and the entrepreneurial spirit that led him to exhibit his epic canvas, the 'Raft of the Medusa', in London as a commercial venture. Géricault is presented as an artist committed to capturing contemporary life with creative integrity and dramatic verve. 240 pp. Englisch. Artikel-Nr. INF1000372625
