BAUDELAIRE'S VOYAGES: THE POET AND HIS PAINTERS. Jeffrey Coven and Dore Ashton. Heckscher Museum, Huntington, 1993. Published by Bulfinch Press, Little, Brown and Company, Boston. 184 pp. with 114 ills. (64 col.). 22 x 21 cm. LC 93-19922 ISBN 0821219995 In English.
A substantial study of the interconnections between the visual arts and the writings of Charles Baudelaire (1821-1867), this catalogue includes illustrations of paintings, prints and drawings by some 40 diverse artists whose works inspired the celebrated French poet or were influenced by his visionary poems and prose pieces, including Rembrandt, Goya, Delacroix, Daumier, Manet, Cezanne, Redon, Munch, Rouault, Matisse and Motherwell. Prefaced by a discussion of Baudelaire's critical views and his central role in the formation of modernist aesthetic sensibilities, an extensive four-part text explores specific correlations among the poet's principal themes, individual works by the featured artists and the rise of Symbolism and other movements.
