    Parkstone International 2012; US$ 5.00

    Claude Gellée (Le Lorrain) (Chamagne, 1604 ? Rome, 1682) Claude Gellée, surnommé Le Lorrain, ne fut ni un grand homme, ni un esprit noble comme Poussin. Toutefois, on ne peut nier son génie et il fut, à l'instar de Poussin, un inventeur profondément original dans les limites imposées par l'idéal classique. Il passa aussi presque toute sa vie à Rome... more...

  • Constableby Barry Venning

    Parkstone International 2012; US$ 9.95

    John Constable (East Bergholt, 1776 ? Hampstead, 1837) John Constable fut le premier peintre de paysage anglais qui ne tira pas son enseignement des peintres hollandais. Assez proche de la vision de Rubens, c'est à Gainsborough qu'il doit tout : ses paysages, avec leurs grands massifs d'arbres bien répartis à travers le décor vallonné, possèdent un... more...

  • Constableby Barry Venning

    Parkstone International 2012; US$ 9.95

    John Constable ist der erste englische Landschaftsmaler, der den Holländern in nichts nachsteht. Er übernimmt zwar einiges von Rubens Landschaften, doch sein eigentliches Vorbild ist Gainsborough. Constable bringt einen frischen Wind in die Malerei, zum einen, was die Technik, zum anderen, was das Gefühl anbelangt. Mit Ausnahme der Franzosen war Constable... more...
