CLAUDE VIGNON, 1593-1670. Paola Pacht Bassani et al. Musee des Beaux-Arts, Tours, 1993. Organized in association with Musee des Beaux-Arts, Arras, and Musee des Augustins, Toulouse. Published by Arthena, Paris. 620 pp. with 747 ills. (45 col.). 29 x 22 cm. LC 94-189332 ISBN 2903239169 In French.
Published in conjunction with a major exhibition of Vignon's paintings, drawings and prints and incorporating a catalogue raisonne of his extensive oeuvre, this scholarly volume presents a significant reappraisal of the well-known but little-studied French painter, whose distinctive compositions (based mainly on biblical and mythological themes) variously reflect the influence of Parisian Mannerism, Caravaggio, Elsheimer and Rubens. Individual commentaries on hundreds of documented works by Vignon (including numerous lost pieces) augment detailed examinations of his life and career in Rome and Paris, an anthology of critical texts dating from the 17th through the 20th century, and two essays that describe the painter's activities as an art dealer and review the divergent art historical assessments of his achievements.
