Nabis by Claire Freches-Thory

Book Description

The Nabis, a group of radical young painters who formed an artistic brotherhood in Paris in 1889, established what was probably the most important artistic movement in fin-de-siecle France. Composed of artists of various national backgrounds, the group united around a common aim: to revolutionize traditional aesthetics by making art part of everyday life. Their work was characterized by broad, flat areas of pure color, rythmic harmonies, and an absence of spatial depth close in spirit to Japanese prints. This beautifully illustrated book, now available in paperback, remains the leading study devoted to the Nabis. It covers all media - from painting to sculpture, graphic arts to theater design - as a testament to the group's rich legacy. The authors demonstrate the pivotal role played by the Nabis in the development of modernism, examing their activities in the context of contemporary Symbolist art and theory, and the social and intellectual milieu in which they lived and worked. The new paperback edition is being published to coincide with the major Vuillard retrospective opening in mid-January 2003 at the National Gallery, Washington, and travelling to the Royal Academy, London, early 2004.
