Download E-books Écrits sur l'art : L'Art moderne ; Certains ; Trois Primitifs PDF

By Joris-Karl Huysmans

Huysmans a publié trois ouvrages de critique d'art: L'Art moderne (1883), Certains (1889) et Trois Primitifs (1905), composés à partir d'articles parus dans los angeles presse. Après s'être essayé, dans L'Art moderne, au compte rendu de l. a. visite des salons officiels et des expositions impressionnistes, il suggest, dans Certains, l'inventaire de ses goûts personnels, en s'attachant à l'étude de peintres - Pierre Puvis de Chavannes, Gustave Moreau, Odilon Redon, Félicien Rops... - et de thèmes particuliers: "Le fer", "Le monstre", and so on. Dans Trois Primitifs, enfin, il s'attarde sur des artistes jusque-là négligés: constitué d'une monographie de Mathias Grünewald et du récit de los angeles visite de l'Institut Staedel de Francfort, ce texte apparaît comme un retour sur l'origine même de son intérêt pour les arts plastiques. Souvent ironiques et pleins de verve - Il peint à los angeles bile, comme d'autres à los angeles gouache, à l'encaustique ou au pastel écrivait Charles Maurras -, ces écrits présentent un double intérêt: outre qu'on y découvre les peintres de prédilection de Huysmans, de Degas à Caillebotte, en passant par Renoir, Monet et Hokusai, ils éclairent aussi, par ricochet, les romans de l'auteur et l. a. fonction singulière qu'y assument les œuvres d'art.
