La peinture comme au théâtre

Author(s): Marie-Thérèse  Gazeau-Caille, Jean-Marc  Irollo

€ 7.62 tax included

Some of the scenes portrayed in painting are not that different from the theater. The artist arranges characters on the canvas, gives expression to their faces, and places their bodies in meaningful poses. No detail is overlooked, from the decor, to accessories and costumes. This little book invites readers to discover the works of a few major neoclassical and romantic French painters from an original perspective: the theater.
