9788874396467: Precolumbian Art from the Barbier-Mueller Collection

The Barbier-Mueller Collection of Pre-Columbian art, recently auctioned at Sotheby’s, is the most comprehensive collection of its kind. Comprising some 300 works from Mexico, Central, and South America— wood and stone sculptures, ceramics, textiles, and ritual objects—it spans 1200 bc to 1500 ad. This sumptuous slipcased set presents the collection, which includes masterworks from the Aztec, Maya, and other cultures, in two magnificently illustrated books written by the greatest international specialists on the subject, and also includes Sotheby’s sale catalogue.
The Barbier-Mueller Collection, one of the most important and wide-ranging art collections in the world, was begun by Josef Mueller in Paris in 1908 with the purchase of works by Hodler and Cézanne; the Swiss Mueller then looked beyond Western art and bought his first Pre-Columbian piece, an Aztec stone water goddess, in 1920. Today, Mueller’s daughter and son-in-law, Monique and Jean Paul Barbier-Mueller, continue to collect Western, African, Oceanic, and Cycladic art that is frequently on loan to museums around the world.

Book Description Five Continents Editions, 2013. Book Condition: new. Edited by Jacques Blazy. English and French Text. Coedition whit Sotheby's. Milano, 2013; 3 voll., clothbound in case, pp. 640, 633 b/w and col. ill., cm 23x30. Référence absolue en art précolombien, la collection Barbier-Mueller est regroupée pour la première fois sous la forme d'un somptueux coffret contenant deux ouvrages magnifiquement illustrés et commentés par les plus grands spécialistes mondiaux en la matière. Ces livres d'art présentent un ensemble unique au monde, que Josef Mueller a commencé à réunir il y a près de cent ans. En 1908 et 1909, Josef Mueller acquiert à Paris des ouvres maîtresses d'Hodler et de Cézanne. Ouvrant sa collection aux chefs-d'oeuvre de l'art universel, il achète à Paris, en 1920, sa première et importante ouvre d'art précolombien, la Déesse de l'eau aztèque. Grand esthète, homme de culture, son gendre Jean Paul Barbier-Mueller portera cette collection, comme celles dédiées aux autres domaines artistiques (arts d'Afrique, arts d'Océanie, art cycladique, arts d'Asie du Sud-Est.), à l'excellence qui la caractérise aujourd'hui. Provenant du continent américain, les plus de 300 ouvres qui la composent (sculptures en pierre et en bois, céramiques, tissus, objets rituels) sont représentatives des plus importantes cultures précolombiennes et illustrent, à travers les chefs-d'ouvre emblématiques ponctuant chaque ensemble, tels que la statue Chupicuaro et le vase Tarasque provenant tous deux de l'ancienne collection de Guy Joussemet, la richesse de ces civilisations. Le coffret compte, en plus des deux volumes dédiés à la mise en contexte historique et artistique des oeuvres, le catalogue de vente de Sotheby's. Bookseller Inventory # 2647998
