Biografie van de Nederlandse schilder (Lattrop 1819 - Grenoble 1891).
Author: John Sillevis, Götz Czymmek
Jongkind (1819-1891) aimait à représenter canaux et moulins de sa patrie, la Hollande, dans des scènes d'hiver où évoluent dies patineurs, ainsi que les ports. En France, son pays d'adoption, il trouva son inspiration le long des quais de Seine, dans les rues de Paris et sur la côte normande. Le peintre, qui manifesta un merveilleux talent d'aquarelliste, de dessinateur, et de graveur, acheva son existence près de Grenoble, à La Côte Saint-André. Si les Néerlandais sont sensibles à la tradition du paysage hollandais à laquelle se rattache Jongkind, les Français ont retenu très tôt ce dernier comme un des leurs. Jongkind en vint à être considéré comme appartenant à leur lignée, selon une filiation reconnue par Signac : " Il faut donc placer ce rénovateur du paysage moderne entre Corot et Monet, en tête de ces autres précurseurs de l'Impressionnisme : Boudin, Cals et Lépine. Et, comme il le souhaitait, comme il l'indiquait en se proclamant, dans les livrets du Salon, élève d'Isabey [...], il doit être classé parmi les maîtres de l'Ecole française. "

Origins of Impressionism

"This handsome publication, which accompanies a major exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, is a lively and engaging account of the artistic scene in Paris in the 1860s, the years that witnessed the beginnings of Impressionism. For the first time the interactions and relationships among the group of painters who became known as the Impressionists are examined without the overworn art historical polarities commonly evoked: academic versus avant-garde, classicist versus romantic, realist versus impressionist. A host of strong personalities contributed to this history, and their style evolved into a new way of looking at the world. These artists wanted above all to give an impression of truth and to have an impact on or even to shock the public. And they wanted to measure up to or surpass their elders. This complex and rich environment is presented here - the grand old men and the young turks encounter each other, the Salon pontificates, and the new generation moves fitfully ahead, benignly but always with determination." "Origins of Impressionism gives a day-by-day, year-by-year study of the genesis of an epoch-making style." "Bibliographies and provenances are provided for each of the almost two hundred works in the exhibition, and there is an illustrated chronology. With more than two hundred superb colorplates, this informative survey is an essential work for both the general reader and the scholar."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

The book deals with different sorts of authoritative sources, predominantly but not exclusively written ones, on which Christian communities have based their identity from the period of early Christianity to the twentieth century. Issues addressed are the processes leading to the development of authoritative traditions as well as the effects these have had on the identity of Christian churches or confessions. Special attention is paid to the crisis which the belief in authoritative sources has experienced since the rise of modernity.
