The fifth entry in this acclaimed series finds Verlaque and Bonnet searching for a murderer—in a crime tied to Provence’s greatest artist The next book in the Verlaque & Bonnet Provençal Mystery series, The Curse of La Fontaine, will be available from Penguin in April 2017! A friend in his cigar club asks Antoine Verlaque to visit René Rouquet, a retired postal worker who has found a rolled-up canvas in his apartment. As the apartment once belonged to Paul Cézanne, Rouquet is convinced he’s discovered a treasure. But when Antoine arrives at the apartment, he finds René dead, the canvas missing, and a mysterious art history professor standing over the body. When the painting is finally recovered, the mystery only deepens. The brushwork and color all point to Cézanne. But who is the smiling woman in the painting? She is definitely not the dour Madame Cézanne. Who killed René? Who stole the painting? And what will they do to get it back? Like Donna Leon and Andrea Camilleri, M. L. Longworth’s enchanting mysteries blend clever whodunits with gustatory delights and the timeless romance of Provence. The Mystery of the Lost Cézanne adds a new twist by immersing Antoine and Marine in a clever double narrative that costars Provence’s greatest artist. “Art theft is a hot topic on the mystery scene, and no one’s heist is livelier than Longworth’s.” —Kirkus Reviews From the Trade Paperback edition.

Drawing on a broad foundation in the history of nineteenth-century French art, Richard Shiff offers an innovative interpretation of Cézanne's painting. He shows how Cézanne's style met the emerging criteria of a "technique of originality" and how it satisfied critics sympathetic to symbolism as well as to impressionism. Expanding his study of the interaction of Cézanne and his critics, Shiff considers the problem of modern art in general. He locates the core of modernism in a dialectic of making (technique) and finding (originality). Ultimately, Shiff provides not only clarifying accounts of impressionism and symbolism but of a modern classicism as well.

A beautiful young woman is found murdered . . . and the clues to her death point to her spurned lover, Paul Cézanne. In this richly atmospheric novel, a mysterious young woman named Solange Vernet arrives in Aix-en-Provence with her lover, a Darwinian scholar named Charles Westbury, and a year later is found strangled in a quarry outside the city. The young and inexperienced magistrate, Bernard Martin, finds his investigation caught in the crossfires of a raging cultural debate. Initially assuming that Solange’s murder was a simple crime de passion by either a jealous Cézanne or a betrayed Westbury, Bernard soon finds himself on a mission to unravel the secrets of Solange and Cezanne’s hidden past. Exploring questions of science and religion that persist even to this day, Cezanne’s Quarry is a provocative debut mystery about life, death, love, and art.

Das erfolgreichste Buch zur Kunst der letzten fünfzig Jahre - jetzt neu auflegt im FISCHER Taschenbuch! Mit seinem legendären Buch ›Sehen. Das Bild der Welt in der Bilderwelt‹ lehrte John Berger uns Anfang der 1970er Jahre, Bilder neu zu sehen. Er analysiert Gemälde nicht isoliert in einer Welt von musealer Ewigkeit, sondern als Gebrauchsmuster der modernen Gesellschaft, die vor allem den weiblichen Körper zur Reklame benutzt. John Berger, der große europäische Erzähler und Essayist, feiert im November 2016 seinen 90. Geburtstag. Seine Essays zu Kunst und Fotografie sind aus der Ästhetik des 20. Jahrhunderts nicht mehr wegzudenken. Meisterhaft finden seine Erzählungen und Romane eine sinnliche Antwort auf die Frage, wie wir heute leben. »Es gibt niemals genug von John Berger!« Tilda Swinton

"19th-Century Art has been influential in cementing the reputations of many painters and sculptors, and this new edition adds more artists to the pantheon. It also explores for the first time the work of photographers, who themselves provoked new ways of looking at nineteenth-century painting. Historical perspective is enhanced in this edition with a selection of sparkling critical and artistic responses to many of the key works of art since their creation, such as: Gericault on the public response to his famous Raft of the Medusa, John Ruskin on Turner, and poet Baudelaire on the sculpture of the day." "To match the opulence of the subject, the new edition features 540 illustrations, 370 of which are in full color."--BOOK JACKET.

Eine erste Spur, die zu einer Geheimloge führt, erweist sich als Sackgasse. Ist womöglich die russische Mafia in die Morde verwickelt? Doch dann die heiße Spur: ein Jazzstück mit dem bezeichnenden Titel »Misterioso« ...
