VISIONS OF ANTIQUITY: NEOCLASSICAL FIGURE DRAWINGS. Richard J. Campbell et al. Los Angeles County Museum of Art, 1993. Organized and published in association with Minneapolis Institute of Arts. Distributed by University of Washington Press, Seattle. 352 pp. with 189 ills. (15 col.). 32 x 24 cm. LC 93-15097 ISBN 0295973099 In English.
This scholarly catalogue illuminates the development of the Neo-Classical style in European art from 1760 to 1830 through a presentation of 116 figure drawings assembled from international collections, featuring reproductions and detailed analyses of works ranging from preliminary sketches to highly finished studies of mythological, literary and historical subjects by Flaxman, Romney, Vien, Fragonard, David, Ingres, Canova, Batoni, Fuseli, Mengs, Tischbein, Thorvaldsen and some 50 other artists. Four essays explore the historical context of Neo-Classicism and its diverse stylistic currents; the interpretation of Antique themes by Northern European artists; the importance of life drawing in the renowned Roman academies of the late 18th century; and the central role of drawing in the oeuvre of French painter Girodet (1767-1824).
