Albert Moore was one of the most important late Victorian artists. In this book the author presents a fresh view of the artist's allegedly reclusive personality, and firmly establishes him as a major figure and a significant precursor of Modernism.
"Beautifully produced."-Christie's Book Catalogue "Asleson's book gives Moore his rightful place as an artist whose artistic goals in formal terms were far ahead of his time ... Asleson has uncovered great deal of interesting early biographical material and in the first chapter she has skilfully interwoven the artistic careers of several of Moore's talented brothers ... Writing in a clear unfussy style, the author has used a formidable amount of interesting new research to endorse her arguments. Copiously illustrated and very well produced, the book should appeal to scholars of Victorian art and others who can appreciate Moore's fascinating work and relentless pursuit of aesthetic perfection."-Lee MacCormik Edwards, The Art Book "...It was Albert Moore who, more than any other artist of his generation created 'art for art's sake'... a lucidly written and handsomely illustrated book ... by setting his career within a vivid portrayal of the Victorian art world, she adds depth to a life too often seen in single dimension. Yet this wealth of contextual information never obscures the real issue of Moore's art - the realisation of a world of serene beauty - in which, as Asleson observes, 'words are unnecessary.' "-Debra Mancoff, Art Quarterly "Debunks the myth of his hermit-like existence, documents his close relationship with Whistler, and Phaidon has done its usual exemplary job of reproducing his work."-Hampstead and Highgate Express "In this handsome volume, which would have given Moore himself much pleasure, both for its admirable design and the fidelity of its colour reproductions, Dr Robyn Asleson assembles virtually everything that is known about this reclusive, elusive figure, who seems to have left very little documentation."-Paul Johnson, Apollo "This book demonstrates that there is more to Moore than has previously been allowed."-Charlotte Gere, The Art Newspaper商品の説明をすべて表示する
However, I do find the illustrations/paint reproductions a little small and too few in number. Several of his best works are not included in this book. I also own the Phaidon book in this same series on J. W. Waterhouse and that book has many more color painting reproductions and they are much larger. I wish the Moore book was more like my Waterhouse book.
Albert Moore (1841 - 1893) was an English painter most well known for his depictions of the "idealized female beauty", often featuring women adorned in flowing, elaborate drapery. He was one of the prominent figures during the Victorian era of painting that included artists like Alma-Tadema, William Waterhouse and the Pre-Raphaelites.
This art book by Phaidon Press features close to 200 illustrations ( 135 colored ) by the artist, spread across 240 pages. The reproductions are vivid and sharp, and most are printed on single pages ( and not spread across two pages, which ruins appreciation ).
A great primer for studying and enjoying the artist's bountiful collection of paintings. Recommended.
