              Landscapes (PDF ebook)

              By Michel, Emile

              Although considered a minor genre for a long time, the art of landscape has risen above its forebears to become a genre of its own. Through this study, Michel offers an exceptional panorama, from the 15th century to the present, of art and the way artists portray the world in all... its splendour.

              L'Art du paysage (PDF ebook)

              By Michel, Emile

              Longtemps considere comme la simple toile de fond d'une oeuvre, le paysage a depasse la peinture religieuse et la peinture d'histoire pour devenir un genre a part entiere. Si, pour les artistes, la nature a longtemps servi d'exercice et de decors aux sujets, elle a finalement ete... etudiee et integree dans leurs oeuvres comme un temoignage de l'etude eclairee et scientifique du monde. Qu'il soit classique, romantique, impressionniste, post-impressionniste ou postmoderne, ce genre pictural ne cesse d'attirer les artistes qui y trouvent une source intarissable d'inspiration. Giorgione, les Bruegel, Le Lorrain, Poussin, Turner ou encore Constable, pour ne citer que les plus grands, sont autant de peintres paysagistes qui laisserent une trace indelebile dans l'histoire de l'art. A travers cette etude, Emile Michel nous offre un panorama exceptionnel, du XVe siecle a nos jours, sur l'art et la maniere de peindre le monde dans toute sa splendeur.

              Bruegel (PDF ebook)

              By Michel, Emile; Charles, Victoria

              Die Bruegels - allen voran Pieter der Altere, zusammen mit seinen Sohnen Pieter (Hollenbruegel") und Jan (Samt- oder Blumenbruegel") - sind die bedeutendste flamische Malerfamilie. Ihre Werke sind Zeugnisse des unschatzbaren Beitrags, den diese Familie in der Entwicklung der Male...rei des nordlichen Europa geleistet hat. Sie entzogen sich bewusst dem Einfluss des italienischen Manierismus und schufen damit einen ganz eigenen, unabhangigen und tief im originellen Charakter der Flamen verwurzelten Stil. In teils volkstumlichen, teils allegorischen Szenen schildern Pieter Bruegel und seine Nachfolger auf unnachahmliche Weise den Alltag der bauerlichen und der stadtischen Bevolkerung zur Zeit der spanischen Herrschaft uber die Niederlande. In diesem opulent bebilderten Werk zeichnen die Autoren, Emile Michel und Victoria Charles, ein lebendiges Bild, anhand dessen wir die Entwicklung der niederlandischen und flamischen Kunst in der Zeit zwischen dem 15. und dem 17. Jahrhundert nachvollziehen konnen.

              Harmensz van Rijn Rembrandt
               

              Harmensz van Rijn Rembrandt (PDF ebook)

              By Michel, Emile

              Rembrandt is completely mysterious in his spirit, his character, his life, his work and his method of painting. What we can divine of his essential nature comes through his painting and the trivial or tragic incidents of his unfortunate life; his penchant for ostentatious living ...forced him to declare bankruptcy. His misfortunes are not entirely explicable, and his oeuvre reflects disturbing notions and contradictory impulses emerging from the depths of his being, like the light and shade of his pictures. In spite of this, nothing perhaps in the history of art gives a more profound impression of unity than his paintings, composed though they are of such different elements, full of complex significations. One feels as if his intellect, that genial, great, free mind, bold and ignorant of all servitude and which led him to the loftiest meditations and the most sublime reveries, derived from the same source as his emotions. From this comes the tragic element he imprinted on everything he painted, irrespective of subject; there was inequality in his work as well as the sublime, which may be seen as the inevitable consequence of such a tumultuous existence. It seems as though this singular, strange, attractive and almost enigmatic personality was slow in developing, or at least in attaining its complete expansion. Rembrandt showed talent and an original vision of the world early, as evidenced in his youthful etchings and his first self-portraits of about 1630. In painting, however, he did not immediately find the method he needed to express the still incomprehensible things he had to say, that audacious, broad and personal method which we admire in the masterpieces of his maturity and old age. In spite of its subtlety, it was adjudged brutal in his day and certainly contributed to alienate his public. From the time of his beginnings and of his successes, however, lighting played a major part in his conception of painting and he made it the principal instrument of his in

              Pieter Brueghel (EPUB ebook)

              By Michel, Emile; Charles, Victoria

              Pieter Bruegel, l'Ancien (pres de Breda, 1525 - Bruxelles, 1569) Pieter Bruegel fut le premier membre important d'une famille d'artistes, actifs durant quatre generations. D'abord dessinateur avant de devenir peintre, il peignit des themes religieux, comme la Tour de Babel, avec... des couleurs extremement vives. Influence par Jerome Bosch, il s'attela a de vastes scenes complexes decrivant la vie paysanne et des allegories bibliques ou spirituelles, souvent peuplees de sujets plonges dans des actions tres variees. Pourtant, ces scenes ont en commun une integrite informelle et un certain humour. A travers son oeuvre, il introduisit un nouvel esprit d'humanite. Ami des humanistes, Bruegel composa de veritables paysages philosophiques au coeur desquels l'Homme accepte passivement son destin, prisonnier du temps qui passe.
