This volume contains the French text of Jean-François Regnard's 1696 comic play Le Joueur, edited by Arthur Tilley and first published in 1918. Tilley's edition draws principally from the text of G. d'Heylli's 1876 edition of the Théâtre du Regnard and adopts modernised spelling, punctuation, and arrangement of scenes. The text of the play is supported by an introduction, examining the life of Regnard and the reception of Le Joueur, and notes on some of the more difficult words and phrases that appear in the work for which Tilley consulted several contemporary seventeenth-century dictionaries.
Considered by Jean Renoir to be the greatest living sculptor of his time, Edgar Degas exhibited only one statute during his lifetime--the incomparable Little Dancer, Aged Fourteen. The work met with mixed reception, labeled vulgar by the conservative and quintessentially modern by the avant-garde. Following the artist's death in 1917, about 80 works were rescued, from his studio, and his heirs contracted with a foundry to case them in strictly limited editions, which have long since become prized pieces the world over. Documenting only four complete vintage sets of the bronzes, this lavishly illustrated catalogue presents for the first time stunning color images of the sculptures together with archival photographs taken of the original models found in Degas's studio in 1917-18 and historic photographs taken 50 years ago by Leonard von Matt. Included also are reprints of essays written in 1921 by a contemporary of the artist, by John Rewald to accompany relatively early exhibitions of Degas's work in the 50s and 70s, and by contemporary art historians, as well as appendices that include extensive exhibition, sales, and auction records, among other primary source materials.
Inventing the Modern World
"Inventing the Modern World explores innovation and its effect on the creation of objects and modern life. Objects examined here not only illustrate inventive or revived fabrication techniques, but also embody cross-cultural and cross-national influences, and reflect the significant nationalistic objectives and folkloric customs that shaped the competition inherent in the events. They also illuminate how the fairs became places where designers, makers, and consumers assembled to learn about other peoples and cultures, to make discoveries about craftsmanship and manufactures, to appropriate ideas, and to acquire works"--Cover flap.
