NameÉmile Gallé : l'amour de l'art - Les écrits artistiques du maître de l’Art nouveau
DescriptionEmile Galle is - if not the master of Art Nouveau - at least one of its major artists. After decades of neglect, his works are now widely recognized and his artistic ideas were recorded by him in numerous writings (articles, letters, forewords, records show ...). In 1908, four years after his death, his widow wrote a first selection of his texts under the title "Writing for Art" (reprinted in this volume). In The Art of Love, François Le Tacon has assembled all Gallé's writings related to art, supplemented by descriptions of important masterpieces by Gallé himself (Table Flore de Lorraine, Way to Fall, Field of Blood, for example) and the description of many pieces held by exceptional collectors as Robert de Montesquiou. All these texts and descriptions are illustrated with color reproductions of works by Gallé (works, drawings, sketches ...). The publication of Gallé's texts gathered under the title "L'Amour de l'Art", is organized around six thematic sections : Considerations on Art, Art and Industry, The School of Nancy, Ceramics, Glass, Wood. Edition established and annotated by François Le Tacon. 2010. Format 20 x 26 cm. 360 pages in color, with approximately 100 reproductions of works. Hardback bound, color coated with dust jacket. Price: 35 euros.
