L'artiste et sa muse... couple indissociable de la création artistique que le mythe de Pygmalion a si souvent incarné en peinture, sculpture et musique. Cette problématique s'inscrit dans le cortège de réflexions liées à la production artistique depuis l'origine des temps. Mais il semble indéniable que le XIXe siècle accentua encore (ou transforma parfois) les rapports entre ces deux êtres : presque toujours, il bouleversa indiscutablement l'ordre de leur relation. Parmi les sujets les plus fréquemment évoqués, la question de la féminité est inhérente aux réflexions sur ce thème. "La" muse trouvait-elle un contre-pied masculin qui lui fasse de l'ombre ? L'exemple de l'artiste égocentrique, méprisant tout autre modèle que lui-même, est riche en questionnement. C'est là un phénomène caractéristique du XIXe siècle : le créateur - de plus en plus souvent - s'isole. Simultanément, l'objet d'inspiration, le plus souvent une femme, prétend à une nouvelle reconnaissance. Des œuvres sont conçues expressément pour les qualités individuelles de ces modèles au point que certaines personnalités font naître de véritables légendes, approchant celles des figures mythologiques anciennes. Une confusion s'instaure alors entre mythologie passéiste et mythification moderne: modèles et interprètes deviennent des objets artistiques s'inscrivant dans un processus d'idéalisation.

Considered by Gide to be the most important of his books, this slim, exquisitely crafted volume consists of four dialogues on the subject of homosexuality and its place in society. Published anonymously in bits and pieces between 1911 and 1920, Corydon first appeared in a signed, commercial edition in France in 1924 and in the United States in 1950, the year before Gide's death. In spirited dialogue with his bigoted, boorish interviewer, Corydon marshals an erudite range of evidence from naturalists, historians, poets, and philosophers to support his contention that homosexuality has pervaded the most culturally and artistically advanced civilizations. The evidence, Corydon suggests, points to heterosexuality as a socially constructed union, while the more fundamental, natural relation is the homosexual one.

Subject and object of artists' work, the artist's body represents the state of contemporary art and makes a wider comment on the human condition. Bound or beaten, naked or painted, still or spasmodic: the artist lives his or her art publicly in performance or privately in video and photography.

Download Enlightenment Romanticism And The Blind In France written by William R. Paulson and has been published by Princeton University Press this book supported file pdf, txt, epub, kindle and other format this book has been release on 2014-07-14 with Literary Criticism categories.
Paulson examines literary, philosophical, and pedagogical writing on blindness in France from the Enlightenment, when philosophical speculation and surgical cures for cataracts demystified the difference between the blind and the sighted, to the nineteenth century, when the literary figure of the blind bard or seer linked blindness with genius, madness, and narrative art. A major theme of the book is the effect of blindness on the use of language and sign systems: the philosophes were concerned at first with understanding the doctrine of innate ideas, rather than with understanding blindness as such. Originally published in 1987.

"In this authoritative and lavishly illustrated volume, the renowned Schiele authority Jane Kallir focuses on the artist's images of women, offering fresh insight into a central aspect of Schiele's achievement that has never before been the subject of a focused study. Drawing on the latest scholarship as well as her own exhaustive familiarity with Schiele's oeuvre, Kallir begins with a general overview of gender and culture in early twentieth-century Austria. Subsequent chapters focus on the women who dominated Schiele's life and art: the artist's mother and sisters; his early girlfriends; his first serious partner, Wally Neuzil; and his wife, Edith. Deftly weaving together cultural context, biography, and commentary on the artworks, Kallir reveals how Schiele's women reflect the artist's shifting views of female sexuality as well as changing representations of the female nude in the age of Expressionism"--Provided by publisher.
