About this Item

This is a classic study of the Fauves and very highly recommended. Our copy is near MINT, with a MINT DJ which is now protected with a Mylar covering. There is a small erasure mark at top of front endpaper, with no damage to the book (just cosmetic). Thus it is reduced from US$150.00 and presents itself as a very good bargain. (We also have this in softcover). Bookseller Inventory # 102495

About this title

Synopsis:

This text is devoted to the colourful landscapes produced during the Fauvist period of 1904-1908. An essay on the emergence of the Fauve landscape is followed by four essays devoted to individual sites and such topics as Fauvism's impact on tourism and politics. Another essay concentrates on the critical landscape, in essence the critics' reception of these paintings. Matisse, Braque, Derain, Vlaminck, Dufy, Marquet, Manguin and Friesz are represented with examples of their works.

From Library Journal:

This extraordinary book was prepared as a companion to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art's exhibit The Fauve Landscape: Matisse, Derain, Braque, and Their Circle, 1904-1908. It is, however, much more than an exhibit catalog. Extensive endnotes following each contributed chapter are as fascinating as the over 400 illustrations (210 in full color) that illuminate the work. Freeman's documentary chronology from 1904 through 1908 draws heavily upon notes and personal correspondence of the Fauve artists and thus provides interesting personal insights. Also notable are reproductions of photographic postcards from the period that document views as the artists would actually have seen them. A selected bibliography and thorough index complete the volume. This will appeal to general readers as well as scholars. Highly recommended for public and academic libraries.
