Item Description: Forgotten Books, United States, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Meissonier: His Life and His Art His childhood was gloomy, his youth hard and laborious. Such early experiences as his are the common lot Of artists who make their own way in default Of help and encouragement in their homes. In Meissonier s case, however, his trials had this special feature, that they moulded his character, without embittering the sources from which his soul and genius drew their nourishment. He grew up to be both tender and courageous. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Item Description: Theclassics.Us, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1897 edition. Excerpt: .each time he studies the canvas, till finally it will lose all its interest for him. Why should an ordinary subject of everyday life be idealised till it loses its true character? A modern peasant woman is not a Greek statue. If, falsifying the fact, you give her the air of a goddess, you simply irritate us. Rather take off her petticoat, and drape her in a peplum. It is the faculty for seeing his subject which constitutes the artist. I ORTRAIT OF A CHILD. (Drawing in M. Batta s collection-) Now, as to the siege of Calais, the most pathetic moment, as it strikes me, is not that which is always represented; the six burghers with the halters round their necks, at the King s feet, while Queen Philippa intercedes for them. The feeling that they are aware of her intervention lessens their sacrifice. My idea of the grandeur of that civic devotion seems to me far more touching. The brave citizens, the rope already about their necks, should come to the public square to announce their decision. The women and children, the whole city in fact, should embrace their knees and weep. They should be worshipped, sobbed over, blessed. Then they should depart. There you have the sacrifice at its most poignant moment, amidst the heart-rending farewells of the whole populace. Later on, the scene has rather cooled down. A MUSE DANCING. (Wax model.) A model is an intelligent lay figure, of which we can alter the type at will. We can change it by changing the costume. Oh! what joy there is in painting when things go well, and the model is good! I never fill up an outline. I work like a sculptor, always seeking the relief. It is difficult to draw a very definite outline without giving an effect of dryness. The execution of each portrait is absolutely different. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9781230858173

Excerpt from Meissonier: His Life and His Art His childhood was gloomy, his youth hard and laborious. Such early experiences as his are the common lot Of artists who make their own way in default Of help and encouragement in their homes. In Meissonier s case, however, his trials had this special feature, that they moulded his character, without embittering the sources from which his soul and genius drew their nourishment. He grew up to be both tender and courageous. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1897 edition. Excerpt: .each time he studies the canvas, till finally it will lose all its interest for him. Why should an ordinary subject of everyday life be idealised till it loses its true character? A modern peasant woman is not a Greek statue. If, falsifying the fact, you give her the air of a goddess, you simply irritate us. Rather take off her petticoat, and drape her in a peplum. It is the faculty for seeing his subject which constitutes the artist. I ORTRAIT OF A CHILD. (Drawing in M. Batta s collection-) Now, as to the siege of Calais, the most pathetic moment, as it strikes me, is not that which is always represented; the six burghers with the halters round their necks, at the King s feet, while Queen Philippa intercedes for them. The feeling that they are aware of her intervention lessens their sacrifice. My idea of the grandeur of that civic devotion seems to me far more touching. The brave citizens, the rope already about their necks, should come to the public square to announce their decision. The women and children, the whole city in fact, should embrace their knees and weep. They should be worshipped, sobbed over, blessed. Then they should depart. There you have the sacrifice at its most poignant moment, amidst the heart-rending farewells of the whole populace. Later on, the scene has rather cooled down. A MUSE DANCING. (Wax model.) A model is an intelligent lay figure, of which we can alter the type at will. We can change it by changing the costume. Oh! what joy there is in painting when things go well, and the model is good! I never fill up an outline. I work like a sculptor, always seeking the relief. It is difficult to draw a very definite outline without giving an effect of dryness. The execution of each portrait is absolutely different. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9781230858173
