Download E-books La modernidad de Manet: o la superficie de la pintura en la década de 1860 (La balsa de la Medusa nº 197) PDF

Este libro forma parte de una trilogía, junto con “El lugar del espectador” y “El realismo de Courbet”, que analiza cierta problemática en l. a. evolución de los angeles pintura francesa entre los comienzos de l. a. reacción al Rococó, en l. a. década de 1750, y el advenimiento del Impresionismo en 1870-80. Las décadas de 1860 y 1870 en Francia también fueron el momento y el lugar en que apareció los angeles pintura moderna (los lienzos de Manet de l. a. primera mitad de 1860-70 son esenciales) y, de hecho, me fijé inicialmente en el período comprendido entre “Père de famille” de Greuze y el “Déjeneur sur l'herbe” de Manet porque, además del intenso magnetismo de las obras en cuestión, pensé que l. a. historia del arte (de l. a. cual no me excluyo) tan solo poseía por entonces una comprensión muy rudimentaria de lo que podríamos denominar l. a. prehistoria de los angeles modernidad. En esta trilogía he intentado realizar un análisis de esta prehistoria, entre otras muchas cosas, revelando una dinámica esencial en el núcleo de su estructura que hasta ahora resultaba insospechada.

La modernidad de Manet desborda el que suele ser un trabajo monográfico de un historiador convencional. El análisis de Fried se centra en los angeles obra del pintor francés con una minuciosidad rigurosa, pero también en los pintores de l. a. generación de Manet y en las críticas que se hicieron a las obras de todos estos pintores. Por otra parte, lo que no suele ser ordinary en este tipo de estudios, Fried vuelve sobre un trabajo anterior -«Las fuentes de Manet»-, que incluye en el texto y lo revisa a partir de su propia reflexión y su diálogo, en ocasiones polémico, con las críticas y los vacíos que en su tiempo suscitó.
