PREFACE 



The date of 1870 is a memorable one in the 
history of art no less than in the history of the 
nation itself. Politically and socially viewed, it is 
the starting point of a new period which is to lead 
to the definite establishment of a republican 
regime and to the progressive realization of demo- 
cratic ideals. From an artistic point of view it is 
also the starting point of a new period in the 
forward march of the School and marks the result 
of all the efforts made by our most original 
masters to bring back art to its normal function, 
that ot reproducing our contemporary life, not 
only in its outward appearance but in the peculiar 
aspirations which compose the individual ideals 
of our time. 

The solemn lesson of events produced its fruit. 
France found in its defeat the source of its regenera- 



tion. The country at once assumed the appearance 
of a great hive at work. On all sides the nation 
rose bravely from its ruins to mend and to make. 

French art soon showed the vitality of its consti- 
tution and the vigor of the race by the mar- 
vellous brilliancy it displayed in 1873, at the 
International Exhibition of Vienna and the trium- 
phant revelation of the Universal Exhibition of 
1878. 

Many of those illustrious elders who raised the 
glory of the School so high amid the great struggles 
of the Romantic party : Jules Dupre, Lami, Cabat, 
Robert-Fleury, Isabey, Gigoux and Meissonier 
hold their own firmly to this day. The great natu- 
ralists or realists of yesterday : Corot, Millet and 
Courbet really opened this period, which their 
works continued to invigorate long after their 
death. All the magnificent labour of three quarters 
of a century was to blend and be condensed during 
this last period, into novel and highly significant 
modes of expression. 

In the realm of imagination the great current 
of idealism led to the broad conceptions of monu- 
mental painting which found their typical imper- 
sonincation, first in Paul Baudry, and then more

particularly in Puvis de Chavannes. In the realm 
of observation, the realistic current flows on, 
growing ever more sublime in its strengh, through 
a more acute system of analysis, a more attentive 
and scientific method of reasoning, applied to the 
physical phenomena of light and air and also we 
may add, to the moral and social phenomena of 
contemporary surroundings. Hence sprung these 
two formulas, Impressionnism, with masters such 
as Manet and Degas, Claude Monet and Renoir, 
who opened out such a broad and original way 
for their followers ; and that compromise between 
the habits of tradition and the bolder views of 
independent groups, invented by Bastien Lepage 
" the open air School " which has met with such 
good fortune all over the world. 

It would be assuming too much on the occasion 
of this little Exhibition to lay before our readers 
the history of this period of development of 
art in France and would lead us beyond the 
narrow limits assigned to this introduction. How- 
ever before going any further, we think it well to 
draw attention to the apparently singular coinci- 
dence between the dates of' the last great crisis 
of French art and the last great crisis of our 



PREFACE 



national existence. In fact this parallel will be 
found repeated, if we look back, at several periods ; 
each phase of the political life of the nation coin- 
ciding with a similar move in the progress of the 
School. If the date of 1870 corresponds to that 
of the birth of impressionism do we not find the 
dates of our preceding revolutions from the Great 
Revolution which plainly marks the reform by 
David, to the following revolutions of 1830 and 
1848, the former corresponding to the triumph 
of Romantism while the latter marks the date of 
the first appearance of Realism ? 

The conclusion to be drawn from these com- 
parisons is that ait in France is always in strict 
relationship to life, its true and faithful mirror, 
and so to speak, its highest expression. For this 
it comes within our reach, speaking the language 
we speak and comprehend and we are touched 
and moved by it. The intimate part it plays in our 
lives explains the methodical and progressive 
development of the French School ; it is not, as 
other schools, composed of systematically artificial 
currents in the exclusive and stifling atmosphere 
of Academies and Museums. The galleries of the 
Louvre no doubt were the place of education for 



PtEFACE 

our boldest innovators, the very men who, by 
some unfortunate misunderstanding, were consi- 
dered to be in opposition with our secular tradi- 
tions ; but the School never allowed itself to be 
confined to the hot-house air of Museums it has 
always cast glances, without, into nature and into 
life, and within into the depths of the huir.an 
soul. This, to mention some celebrated examples, 
is what makes the difference between Lenbach, 
the skilful and learned dilettante, who glides 
through the outward form of all great masters 
and plays at making cbcf-d'annrfs, so as to surprise 
us and compel our admiration, and Ricard, who 
ingeniously assimilates their technical process 
studies and imbues himself with their genius, and 
so illustrates, by the magical power of his mar- 
vellous palette, the agitating mystery of the human 
countenance. 

This unobtrusive talent of careful observation, 
always kept wakeful by delicate sensibility or an 
ardent imagination tempered by an ever watchful 
reason, lends to the productions of this period 
its style and its good taste. These are the virtues 
of the race. They are to be found, with the same 
dignified simplicity, and the same informal noble- 



ness, in the works of learned academicians, such 
as Cabanel, whose portraits exhibit such distin- 
guished eminence and in those of the modest and 
retiring Panis, till yesterday unknown, even in 
his own province, and whose " violinplayer " here 
exhibited, may be compared for its honest sober- 
ness and the shrouded softness of it atmosphere 
to Embroiderers and Lady reading of Fantin or to 
the Women praying of Legros ; and again, Mett- 
ling, unknown in our Exhibitions, where he 
was only just able to get two mentions honorables, 
and unappreciated by his surroundings while he 
began to be sought after in Holland and in 
England. Indeed the xix th century in France is 
full of these interesting personalities in the back- 
ground, that are brought forward from day to day 
into the bright light of history which is at the 
same time the light of justice. 

It would be doing an injustice to the American 
people to extol before it the talents of those 
masters to which it has already shown such open 
and enlightened admiration, we cannot think of 
the place assigned to a certain number of them in 
private and public galleries of the New World 
without a deep feeling of gratitude. We are aware 

14 



of the price attached in America to the works 
of our great artists, and thither no doubt we shall 
soon be obliged to proceed if we desire to make 
any complete study of them. But we should like 
above all things we Frenchmen, especiallv now, to 
have recognized, as the general characteristic of 
our entire School and its common virtue; the 
artistic loyaltv, the thorough honesty, its racial 
integrity and the love and worship of truth 
which distinguishes throughout what has been 
called, " the divine fallacy of art ". 

Some years ago, a professor from beyond the 
Rhine, in speaking of an exhibition of German 
paintings at Chicago patronized by their Emperor, 
endeavoured to prove that, whatever might have 
been the influence of the French School in former 
days its educational supremacy was now over, hence 
forward the lead devolved on the new German 
School, so much more healthy more vigorous, and 
of more energetic vitality. The disciples and heirs 
of Puvis de Chavannes and Rodin are of the same 
blood as the soldiers of Joffre. The Americans can 
appreciate their answer. How- indeed could they 
forget that the founders of what has now become a 
flourishing National School, La Farge, and Saint 



Gaudens, were sons of France, that their immor- 
tal Whistler, was proud of his alliance with our 
School, that George Inness, William Morris, 
Hunt and Winslow Homer acknowledged all they 
owed to the teaching of our Theodore Rousseau, 
Millet and Courbet, and that there are besides 
these facts, many others, more recent which 
show the close relationship existing between 
American and French art. 

May this necessarily limited choice of works 
bring back to our American friends the names of 
masters bound to theirs by so many associations 
and sympathies ; and recall to memory all the 
fruitful efforts and glorious struggles, the happy 
results and riches gained for the pleasure of the 
eye and the gratification of the mind, which signa- 
lize the history of the French School during the 
last forty years, in which all our energy was called 
forth to labour in the cause of universal civilization. 

France, instead of laying down for the space 
of forty years, a sinister plan of temporal domi- 
nation, based in extermination and devastation, 
had only thought of taking vengeance for evil 
days by the peaceful work of letters, arts and 
sciences, by assisting the spread of noble ideas,

and of the highest and most disinterested senti- 
ments tending to a broad ideal of human fraternity. 
The bright, proud " Semeuse " (sower-girl) 
with her Phrygian cap had done well in scattering 
the good seed, plentifully, and whitout stint, on 
every soil, in spite of adverse winds. The harvest 
is up now, thick and splendid all around her. 
The slender " Hope " of Puvis de Chavannes 
may at last see flowers on the frail grassy herbs, 
that sprouted so timidly beside her at first, amid 
ruins and rubbish and the tumuli of 1870. In 
conclusion, we find in a glass case of this Exhi- 
bition another work of one of our artists, also 
illustrative of the aim of French genius. It is a 
very small medal, we owe to the talent of a young 
master engraver. Ovide Yencesse. It is executed 
from a drawing by Eugene Carriere and represents 
two heads uniting in a Kiss of peace . This 
tiny medal, tender and grave as well as the beau- 
tiful drawing, is the material rendering of a short 
and really prophetic sentence of that great visio- 
nary writer, Michelet. One cannot read this sen- 
tence now without a quiver of emotion, pride, 
and faith in the future. In the XX th century France 
will declare peace to the world.

This picture was composed in 1872 and is a replica of 
that exhibited the same year at the Salon which was, howe-

This first picture is in the Walton Collection at Baltimore,

French State at the Rouart sale in 1912. Puvis conceived the 
idea just after our disasters. The tiny frail flower growing in 
ruins and tumuli on arid ground and wasted fields, now 
blossoms in full bloom according to the serene and comfor- 
ting thought of the painter.

in 1889. Pupil of Joseph Guichard ; began as a painter

he sent a portrait of his grand-mother. From the 
beginning of his career he worked at etching according 

-83 - 



ENGRAVINGS AND LITHOGRAPHS 



to the indications of the Encyclopedia. His first attempt 
dates from 1849. It is a reproduction of the " ass and her 
little one ", from an 'engraving by Boissieu. In 1852, he 
executed the " Upper part of a door swing " which is 
reckoned one of his best engravings. The works engrav- 
ed by Bracquemond number nearly 1000, either ori- 
ginal subjects or copies. His original etchings treat of 
all kinds of subjects : portraits from nature, nude figures, 
landscapes, generally filled with a world of aquatic birds 
or barndoor fowls ; fancy scenes and illustrations etc. In 
the way of copies, he reproduced the masterpieces of Hol- 
bein, Erasmus for example, which was refused at the Salon 
of 1 86 5, Rubens and Delacroix, Rousseau and Corot, Mil- 
let and Meissonier, Leys and Chaplin. Bracquemond, who 
was we may say, the reviver of etching, wrote a great 
deal on his art and on ceramic with which he also busied 
himself, having even worked with the porcelain maker 
Deck and at the manufactory of Sevres. He also executed 
subjects in gold-smithery and in enamels.

OF FRANCE 

AND 

MODERN ARCHITECTURE 



THE HISTORICAL MONUMENTS 
OF FRANCE 



All French Monuments whose preservation is 
deemed of artistic or historical value and interest 
are classed as Monuments Historiques . This 
classification embraces a great variety of works of 
all periods, such as prehistoric remains, Gallo- 
Roman ruins, edifices of all epochs from the 
middle ages to modern times, stained glass, 
wood and ivory carvings, goldsmith's work, 
enamels, etc... 

The number of buildings classified is over four 
thousand, and that of portable objects, fifteen 
thousand. 

The classification of a given work as a Monu- 
ment Historique is proclaimed by the Minister of 
Fine Arts, upon the advice and recommendation 
of the Commission des Monuments Historiques. 

195 



THE HISTORICAL MONUMENTS OF FRANCE 



This commission was founded in 1837, when the 
prevailing Romanticism made known and popular 
again the wonderful art of France in the middle 
ages that had been not only neglected but practi- 
cally ignored for three centuries. It is composed 
of architects, archeologists and connoisseurs. 
Merimee, Viollet-le-Duc, Montalembert Vitet, 
Lamartine and Victor Hugo were among its mem- 
bers. 

By virtue of this classification, any attempt to 
destroy, remove or repair without the authoriza- 
tion of the Minister of Fine Arts, is prohibited ; 
a prohibition, set forth since 1840 by numerous 
ministerial circulars, and which was sanctioned by 
law on the thirtieth of March 1887. This law rende- 
red the classification binding upon the State, the 
Departments, or the parishes. A later one, of 
December thirty first 1913 extended the same 
obligation to property held privately, while it 
acknowledged a right of indemnity to the owners, 
The repairing of the works which is thus prohi- 
bited to the owners, whoever they may be, is 
undertaken by a dependance of the Fine Arts 
Administration, the Service des Monuments His- 
toriques. The technical Staff consists of architects 

196 




REIMS 
NAVE OF THE CATHEDRAE 



THE HISTORICAL MONUMENTS OF FRANCE 



residing in the place or district where the work is 
situated and who watch and inspect it; of archi- 
tects chosen by competitive examination and 
appointed to a regional circumscription, and of 
general inspectors who exercise a supervising 
control over the plans drawn up by these archi- 
tects and over the execution of their plans. 

The expense of the works is borne by the State 
and the owners. In 1905 the yearly sum attri- 
buted in the budget to the Monuments Histo- 
riques attained scarcely a million and a half 
francs. But after the Separation of the Church 
and State, when the funds at the disposal of the 
Ministry of Public Worship formerly used for the 
edifices of dioceses and parishes were added to it, 
it grew so that it now reaches four millions and a 
half francs to which must he added another million 
furnished by other funds. 

New obligations correspond to these increased 
resources. Churches which formerly received sub- 
sidies from the Ministry of Public Worship have 
been entered as Monuments Historiques and 
their number has doubled in the last six years. 
This increase in the number of buildings classi- 
fied and their dissemination all over the territory, 



THE HISTORICAL MONUMENTS OF FRANCE 



together with the conservative doctrines of 
modern archeology, have tended to modify the 
nature of the work undertaken by the Commis- 
sion. The era of complete restorations is past, 
architects no longer strive to reconstruct edifices 
as they must have been originally, but they now 
endeavor to preserve them as they are. Thus 
putting in practice the principle laid down in 1839 
by the Comte de Gasparin : With regard to old 
monuments it is better to consolidate than to repair, 
better to repair than to restore and better to restore 
than to embellish . 

In 1879, on the initiative of Viollet-le-Duc, the 
Commission des Monuments Historiques started 
the collection of plaster-casts, which has grown 
enormously and now forms, in the Palace of the 
Trocadero in Paris, the Musee de Sculpture Com- 
pared. This museum exhibits the best types of 
each period and of each provincial school, in order 
that they may be compared together as well as 
with the foreign works from which they spring 
or which they influenced. The Commission also 
possesses an important library containing works 
on art and archeology, many of which have become 
very rare; 14.000 drawings, chiefly plans and

reliefs of edifices of which the most remarkable 
have become known through their publication in 
the Archives de la Commission des Monuments 
Historiques ; and 16.000 photographic plates ; 
many of them showing the condition of these 
edifices before their restoration. A yearly subsidy 
from the State allows for the constant addition to 
these extremely precious historical collections.

THE MOBILIER NATIONAL 



THE MOBILIER NATIONAL 



This National Repository, the direct descendant 
of the " Garde Meuble " of the old regime, con- 
tains a large number of pieces of furniture, of 
draperies, carpets and tapestries which were for- 
merly used to furnish and adorn the palaces and 
residences of the Kings. Much of this furniture, 
executed by the leading cabinet-makers of France, 
represents the high water mark of French decora- 
tive an. The tapestries, largely Gobelins and Beau- 
vais from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, 
numbering more than six hundred and forming 
the richest collection in the world, are frequently 
used to decorate national edifices, embassies, 
museums and art exhibitions. There are many 
Savonnerie carpets executed during the reign of 
Louis XIV for the palaces of the Louvre and Ver- 

2 >3 



THE MOBII.IER NATIONAL 



sallies, and sumptuous silk draperies of the eight- 
eenth century and of the Napoleonian era. From 
time to time special exhibitions of these treasures 
have been made, and facilities given to the artists 
desirous of studying them ; while the publication 
of catalogues, photographs and reproductions make 
their importance as objets d'art, widely known 
and appreciated. 

This national establishment also contains a 
working department, where the traditions upon 
which have been built the reputation of the arti- 
sans and art workers of France, are being followed. 

The board of directors of the Mobilier National 
has taken charge of the decoration of the Great 
Gallery of Honour and of the Rotunda of the 
French Section. The four large tapestries in the 
Gallery belong to the " History of Alexander " 
series executed by the Gobelins from the drawings 
of Charles Le Brun 1 . The first cartoon of this 

i. The information concerning these tapestries is taken 
from the work of M. Maurice Fenaille : " Etat general des 
tapisseries de la manufacture des Gobelins, depuis son origine 
jusqu'a nos jours ". Vol. II, p. 167.

THE NOBILIER MATfOKAL 



series, the c< Familv of Darius " was executed by 
Le Brun at Fontainebleau in 1661 at the request 
of Louis XIV who liked to be compared to the 
Macedonian hero. It was only twelve years later 
when Le Bran was named director of the Gobelins 
Manufactory, that he composed the remaining 
cartoons, upon the theme of the battles and 
triumph of Alexander. There are in all five prin- 
cipal subjects : the " Battle of the Granicus ", the 
" Battle of Arbela ", the Defeat of Poms ", the 
fi Family of Darius ", and the * Triumph ot 
Alexander". Each battle being divided into three 
parts after the manner of a tryptich, eleven distinct 
tapestries compose this series. The original pic- 
tures, which served as models, are now in the 
Louvre. 

The weaving of these tapestries began in 1664 
or 1665. Later on, from 1670 to 1688, seven other 
replicas in high and low warp, were made ; all, with 
a single exception, woven in silk and gold. One 
of them which remained unfinished was offered by 
the King to Mademoiselle de Montpensier, and he 
presented three of the sets, one to his brother the 

255 



THE MOBILIKR NATIONAL 



Duke of Orleans, the others to the king of Den- 
mark in July 1682, and to the duke of Lorraine 
in 1699. This last is now in the Castle of Schon- 
briinn, near Vienna. 

The four tapestries of this series, which are 
being exhibited in the Great Gallery of Honour of 
the French section belong to different sets. 

The Battle and Passage of the Granicus. 

Represents Alexander, at the head of his horsemen, 
having crossed the river and dashing to the right towards 
the Persian cavalry. 

The inscription in the cartouche below is, Virtus onmi 
obice major (Valor overcomes every obstacle). On the upper 
part of the border, as in all the other tapestries, are the arms 
of Louis XIV. 

This tapestry belongs to the third set executed from 1670 
to 1685, and which were at the palace of Fontainebleau 
before 1789.

The decoration of the Great Gallery of Honour 
comprises four Savonnerie carpets of the same 
period as the tapestries and which were executed 
for the Great Gallery of the palace of the Louvre. 
They show the arms and initials of Louis XIV 
and the sun which he had so ostentatiously taken 
as his emblem. 

The ensemble is completed by consoles in 
carved and gilded wood, bearing busts of Louis XIV, 
Colbert, Le Brun and Louvois, and by carved and 
gilded seats covered in brocade of the same 
Louis XIV period. 

The Rotunda is made after the circular drawing 
room of the " Hotel de Salm '' built by the architect 
Vaudoyer and which became under Napoleon I 
the palace of the Legion of honor. It is decorated 
with panels of light blue coupe and f rise velvet, work- 
ed with gold which were made by order of Napo- 
leon I for the decoration of the Palace of Ver-

sallies, where, a short rime before his fall, he was 
planning to transfer his court. On the floor 
is laid the carpet called the " Cohortes ". It was 
executed also upon an order of Napoleon by the 
manufactories of Tournay for the palace of Meu- 
don. There exists a replica of it in the Rotunda 
of the Palace of the Legion of Honour. The fur- 
niture, which'is covered in the same velvet as the 
hangings, was made by the celebrated cabinet- 
maker Jacob.

THE GOBELINS TAPESTRIES 

STATE MANUFACTORY 



The Manufactory of the Gobelins was founded 
the 16 of June 1662 by Louis XIV on the advice 
of J. B. Colbert superintendant of the Edifices, 
Arts, and Manufactures of France. The site chosen 
was a building occupied by the brothers Gobeiin 
who exercised the profession of dyers, and in that 
same site the Gobelin manufactory has remained 
to this day. 

The first director was Charles Lebrun, Painter 
to the King. Before its foundation Francis the First 
had already settled at Fontainebleau some fifteen 
tapestry workers under the direction of Philibert 
Babon, sire de la Bourdaiiiere, superintendant of 
the Royal Edifices, and of the Italian architect 

24? 



THE GOBELINS TAPESTRIES 



Sebastien Serlio. Later on, Henri II prompted by 
Catherine de Medicis, founded at the Hospital of 
the Trinit in Paris a School where children were 
taught by the tapestry workers of Fontainebleau ; 
and in 1601 Henri IV brought to Paris from 
Bruges two renowned workers, in high warp 
tapestry, Marc de Coomans and Francois de la 
Planche, whom he settled first, in the Palace of 
the Tournelles and afterwards in the very house 
of the Gobelins. 

In the present Museum of the Gobelins speci- 
mens from all these periods are to be seen. From 
the workshop of Fontainebleau two examples 
" Flora and Cybele ", and the " Death of Joab ", 
attributed to du Cerceau ; both are subjects of small 
dimensions in a cartouche set in the centre within 
an environment and borders in Roman and Etrus- 
can style, showing such small figures as warriors 
and goddesses, with trophies of arms, standards, 
garlands of flowers and of fruit, baskets, birds, 
sphynxes, griffins and cupids, linked with ribbons 
and ornaments. Quite different are the productions 
from the workshops of Coomans and Delaplanche 
executed by Laurent Guyot, Simon Vouet, Michel 
Corneille, Toussaint Dubreuil and Martin Fremi-

net, etc., which follow the naturalistic tradition 
of middle ages tapestries ; Guyot's " Amours de 
Macee et Gombaut " being striking examples ot the 
genre. The first tapestries woven at the manu- 
factory of the Gobelins from the cartons by Lebnin, 
like the " History of Alexander ", the " History of 
the King ", etc., are reallf pictures. But afterwards 
Lebnin painted splendid compositions which 
show him to be one of the great masters in the art 
of decoration ; these are the 4 * Seasons ~* the " Ele- 
ments " the months also called the, " Maisons 
Royales " with their vast landscapes, forests, gar- 
dens, chateaux, and their figures of goddesses, 
nymphs and muses framed in flowers and fruit. 

It was a complete style both in architecture and 
in furniture that Lebnin conceived and carried out 
by the army of artists under his direction, Yvart, 
Verdier, Martin, Van der Meulen Auguier, Caffieri 
and Audran. The painter Mignard succeeded 
him, but being very old he had scarcely time 
to do more than finish some of the tapestries 
begun under Lebrun's direction, among which is 
one of the finest ever made, the Dance of the 
Nymphs " from the painting by Giulio Romano. 

The subjects of tapestries of the xvm cen- 

245 



Till-: GOBKUNS TAPESTRIES 



tury, closely related to those of the xvn, are 
mostly taken from mythology, sacred history, 
and antiquity, and show figures of gods, of heroes 
wearing helmets and plumes, of turbaned patriarchs 
in trailing robes such as we see in " the Iliad "by 
the brothers Coypel, " the History of Jason " by 
de Troy, "the History of Marc Antony" by 
Charles Nattier and " the History of Esther " by 
de Troy. 

To Audran we owe the eight famous pieces 
known under the name of the Portieres " of the 
Gods "which represent the four Seasons and the 
four Elements. Audran also produced the series cal- 
led the " Mois Grotesques" exhibiting an entirely 
new type of decorative invention, a gay style, grace- 
ful, light, and exquisitely harmonious, in which all 
the elements, gods and goddesses, animals, flowers, 
ornaments, curious kiosks, play their part in and 
are subservient to the effect of the ensemble. On 
a smaller scale Coypel tells the " Story of don 
Quixote", always in an ornamental and flowery 
setting. He represents scenes from Moliere's 
" Psyche ", from Racine's " Bajazet "and " Atha- 
lie ", from Corneille's " Rodogune " and from 
Quinauh's " Alceste and Armide ".

THE GOBELINS TAPESTRIES 



Charles Parrocel displayed his talent in depicting 
the cavalcade of the Turkish Embassy on the 
Place de la Concorde (then Place Louis XV) 
in 1721. In the "Tenture des Indes", Francois 
Desportes takes Asia as his subject while Oudry 
finds his inspiration in the "Hunts of Louis XV". 

Francois Boucher brought a new decorative style 
to Beauvais as well as to the Gobelins. Among his 
many tapestries of the Gobelins we may cite, 
charming pastorales, such as Amyntha and Sylvia, 
"Phyllis and Sylvia", and the mythological scenes 
which show the goddess Venus paying a visit to 
Vulcan. 

In the Empire period the work of the manufac- 
tory was largely confined to the copying of pictures 
and the making of red and gold seat coverings desi- 
gned by David. It was during that period that the 
carpet looms, which every since the time of 
Henri IV had been at Neuilly (in a former soap 
manufactory, hence their name, Savonnerie), were 
moved to the Gobelins. 

During the reigns of Louis-Philippe and of 
Napoleon III celebrated pictures from Raphael and 
Rubens down to Horace Vernet were being copied. 
The end of the nineteenth century saw the 

- 247 - 



THE GOBELINS TAPESTRIES 



completion of tapestries after the ' Apotheosis

Poet " by Gustave Moreau and the beginning of 
the present century that of Edouard Toudouze's 
"Death of Duguesclin " for the Court House of 
Rennes, Maignan's " Jason and Medea". "Pro- 
metheus " and the " Oceanides " for the Palace of 
Luxembourg. Under the present direction, in the 
compositions of Cheret, Willette and Weber, there 
is revealed the quite modern note of an art which 
carries out the traditions of grace and elegance 
of Boucher, Watteau and Fragonard. 

In this line the Gobelins have produced a 
drawingroomsuite of four tapestries after composi- 
tions by Jules Cheret, the " Seasons " expressed by 
roses, wheat, vines and holly, together with figures 
01 women and children floating in the air whose 
charming elegance match, and most delightfully, 
the goddesses and cupidsofyore. A folding screen, 
a handscreen, a couch, arm chairs and chairs 
complete this drawing room decoration. 

Inthe " Salut a Paris" of the series of the * Pro- 
vinces of France " Willette represents in her grace 
ful dignity the city of Paris, surrounded by Fortune 
and Minerva, and having at her feet a scene from the

the gavroche (street boy) of 1830, together with 
the defenders of Paris and of France. Louis Anque- 
tin has symbolised fl Burgundy " by the hand- 
some, powerful figure of a woman with bunches 
of grapes and flowing wine. A tryptic by Raffaelli 
depicts faithfully the country of" Brittany " in all 
the splendour of its nature and of its historical 
remains, as a setting to a typical holiday crowd. 
Henri Rachon represents " Toulouse ", the city of 
the Capitouls and the Floral games, of rosy archi- 
tecture, blue skies, and dark-eyed beauties. A great 
decorative master, Felix Braquemond, gives us an

lor scarf above the landscape of Meudon, Madame 
Marie Cazin an elegant and delicate " Diana at the

Achille Lauge, who has also made cartons from 
natural flowers, roses, dahlias, etc. 

Many of the tapestry workers having become 
soldiers and gone off to the war, the present out 
put of the manufactory is very much curtailed. 
The managing staff is also much reduced and for 
the same reason. It was felt however, that this 
ancient and glorious national manufactory of 
France should nevertheless be represented at the 
International Exhibition of San Francisco. There 
fore, it is presenting, instead of its last produc- 
tions, which are not entirely finished, some ot 
the best work it has done during the last twenty 
five vears.

THE SEVRES PORCELAIN 
STATE MANUFACTORY 



A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE WORKS 

The Sevres Manufactory was founded in 1738 
by a group of gentlemen whose object was to 
emulate Germany in the development of the art 
of porcelain-making. From the first its success was 
assured, and its early productions, which were much 
sought after and highly appreciated by the con- 
noisseurs of the eighteenth century, have steadily 
grown in value. In 1763, it became a royal esta- 
blishment and owing to the personal interest 
Louis XIV and Louis XV took in it, the grea- 
test artists of the time became its contributors. 
Francois Boucher gave some of his most char- 
ming designs to Sevres, Falconet, Boizot, Pajou 



257 



THE SEVRES PORCELAIN 



and many others modelled the graceful little 
figures, the groups, the ipergnes which were 
reproduced in biscuit china and contributed so 
much to spreading in foreign Countries the 
charm, good taste and elegance of French-Art. 

The first Republic took the Sevres Manufactory 
under its protection. During the reign of Napo- 
leon the first, it became an Imperial establishment, 
and, from then untill 1871, a period of eighty 
years, it never ceased to be one of the personal 
possessions of the Rulers of France, and supplied 
the imperial and royal palaces with splendid pro- 
ducts : ornaments, table-sets, biscuit sculptures, 
etc., while many of them were offered as pre- 
sents to foreign sovereigns. Faithfully reflecting 
the tendencies of the decorative art of each epoch, 
the Manufactory perhaps then lacked the freedom 
which had enabled the artists of the eighteenth 
century who worked for it, to create so many 
delightful, entirely personal and varied works. 
But it assumed a new character, aptly defined by 
one of its managers of the early part of the nine- 
teenth century, the famous chemist Alexandre 
Brongniart, when he said that the Manufactory 
should be the Museum of ceramic Art. For the 



-258- 



THE SEVRES PORCELAIN 



last forty years what the Government of the 
Republic has endeavoured to make of the old 
Sevres institution, is a central place for researches 
which aim at the development of technical pro- 
cesses, and a workshop of artistic production 
free from any business preoccupations. Acces- 
sible to private manufacturers for any expe- 
riments and information that may be useful to 
them, it constantly endeavours to place at their 
disposal good models and improved and safer pro- 
cesses of fabrication. 

Reorganized in 1910, the Sevres Manufactory 
is now placed under the direction and control of 
an an and technical Committee composed of the 
most eminent representatives of French An, who 
strive to give to this old and glorious institution 
a fresh impulse. Examples of the production of 
the last few years are presented in this exhibition .

MODERN DECORATIVE ART 



MODERN DECORATIVE ART 



The Art of France has asserted itself not only 
in the masterpieces of its architects, painters and 
sculptors, but, perhaps more than that of any other 
nation, in the great and varied field of the deco- 
rative arts as well. In all periods of its history, 
French artists have fashioned the thousand objects 
with which man surrounds himself those that 
are useful and necessary and those that are purely 
objets de luxe in a manner so characteristic of 
each period, so impregnated with its spirit that 
they form an harmonious and typical setting to 
its life, perfectly suited to, and expressive of it. 
The nineteenth century has been the notable 
exception to this rule, for it would seem as if its 
complete art expression had been confined to the 

279 



MODERN DECORATIVE ART 



fields of what are called the " Fine " Arts, whe- 
reas its decorative art was ruled by a taste for the 
revival of the styles of past periods. Added to 
this was a manner of narrow academic contempt 
for the " Minor Arts " which further precluded 
all originality and paralyzed the creative impulse. 
It is less than fifty years ago that the first signs 
of a renaissance of the applied arts were seen, 
that the necessity for the creation of an original 
setting truly adapted to our modern life began to 
make itself felt. Some notable efforts were attemp- 
ted before 1870, and the enterprising society, the 
Union Centrak des Arts Decoratifs, which still 
exists and greatly prospers, was also founded 
before 1870. From that time the quality of 
workmanship, the beauty of the materials used 
even for mechanical products, was again being 
sought after by the decorators and artisans of France 
whose rank in importance and dignity began to 
grow to that of their elder brothers, the painters 
and sculptors. The appreciation for the arts of the 
Far East, the renewed sense for the truly national 
and living art of the middle ages and the exhaus- 

280 



MODERN' DECORATIVE ART 



live study of its varied examples were important 
factors contributing to this modern movement. 

But it was no more than thirty years ago that 
the thought of seeking unhackneyed decorative 
subjects and inventing new designs arose. At the 
same time the old technical processes were also 
being perfected and renewed. Galle, Bracquemond, 
Chaplet, Carries and Grasset setting the example, 
lead in this movement for the creation of original 
forms, decorations, and technical processes. All 
the attempts of that period were not equally 
successful, some erred on the side of exaggeration 
and fancy, others in that of excessive simplification, 
but the result was much generous emulation, and 
an abundance of inspiration sprung from this 
movement which found both enthusiastic parti- 
sans and irreconciliable adversaries. 

It was then that the two great Art Associations 
of France began to admit examples of the deco- 
rative arts to their Salons which, until then, had 
been closed to all but works of the "Fine" Arts. 
The Socifie National* des Beaux-Arts was the first, 
that of the Artistes Francois followed its example. 

281 



MODERN DECORATIVE ART 



Later on, the SocieU des Artistes Decor ateurs, foun- 
ded in 1902, together with the new Salon d'Au- 
tomne brought the great weight of their innova- 
ting influence to the cause of Decorative art. The 
Museum of the Luxembourg, that of the Union 
Centrale des Arts Dtcoratifs, as well as many foreign 
Museums found place among their collections for 
entirely original works which belonged to no 
hitherto known style. Meanwhile the Internatio- 
nal Exhibition of 1900 had given the first great 
opportunity of judging the progress that had 
been made and of comparing French work with 
that of other foreign countries, England, Belgium, 
Austria, Scandinavia, where before or after France 
(long before in England), much had been attemp- 
ted in the same general direction. Unfortunately 
it also led to an hastily conceived production of 
Art Nouveau at any cost, which did more harm 
than good to the movement and prevented its 
being generally recognised. 

Since then, without mentioning the artists 
now actively at work, and of whom many are 
represented in the present Exhibition, we may 

282 



MODERN DECORATIVE ART 



say that this great movement has become less 
exuberant, more refined. French traditions, better 
understood, have led to the suppression of the 
more extravagant innovations. Unrestrained fancy 
has been toned down, while technical processes 
were constantly being perfected. The system of 
decoration based upon the flower, so fruitful in 
itself but which had been so misused, is now 
brought down to proper proportions, and the taste 
for clear, rich and resonant color is reviving. 

Does all this mean that an entirely new and 
modern decorative style has been found as is 
claimed in certain countries? This dangerous 
pretention'must be left to others than the French. 
In this domain as in all others, the an of France 
must prove itself solely by good taste and refine- 
ment, by the sense of just proportions and of 
harmony. It cannot give up the persuasive lessons, 
the^strength witch a long tradition has brought 
to it. Nor can it renounce the particular charm 
resulting from the individualistic temperament of 
the race affected by, and responding to, the 
influence of the period. Above all, the cumbersome 

- 283 - 



MODERN DECORATIVE ART 



weight of rationalistic rules is no more its business 
than the massive ponderousness of arbitrary and 
barbaric geometrical shapes. 

It is hoped that the general effect of the collec- 
tion exhibited at San Francisco will show what 
the modern French decorative artist can achieve 
when he is working in harmonious relation with 
sculptors and painters who contrive to bend their 
personal freedom of expression to each particular 
task. Unfortunately but a glimpse can be given 
of the taste of our architects based upon the work 
of the ancient builders, in the construction of 
modern dwellings and the manner of furnishing 
them. Circumstances did not render possible a full

It has not been possible to give anything like a 
complete presentation of French stage craft. When 
this section was being organized, many of the 
men working for the stage had left to shoulder a 
gun, and these ' builders of illusions ' were in the 
midst of scenes of grim, dramatic reality. It is 
hoped, however, that what has been possible to do 
will give not too inadequate an idea of some of 
the many modern achievements of the French 
stage. Eclecticism has been the guide in the choice 
of the sketches and maquettes for scenery and 
designs for costumes which form the chief part ot 
this little exhibition. 

After having been pompous in the seventeenth 
century, brilliant and ingenious in the eighteenth, 
the art of scene painting in France had become 
cold, common place and the plainest sort of deco- 



THEATRICAL SECTION 



rations with symetrical patterns in conventiona 
style had come to be considered entirely suffi- 
cient. Its revival in the beginning of the nine- 
teenth century can be traced to the melodrama, a 
kind of play belonging to theatrical history, and 
not unjustly discredited at present, but which, 
through its evolution, gave fresh vitality to many 
branches of stage-craft. One of the early melodra- 
matists, Guillem de Pixirecourt, the author who 
cared little to hold up the mirror to nature in his 
plays, was, on the contrary, most particular about 
the accuracy of his scenery: He called to his help 
a man full of imagination and resource, the cele- 
brated Daguerre, who before his discovery was a 
scene painter. Daguerre was the first to replace 
the stiff dullness of background curtains with 
subjects showing interesting effects of light and 
perspective. Then Ciceri, an artist of imagination 
and great originality discarded all traditional rou- 
tine and invented a whole system of boldly ima- 
gined and constructed stage setting and effects. A 
school of scene painters followed in his foot-steps, 
Sechan, Dieterle, Feuchere and Depleschin, while, 
at the same time, the designing of costumes 
which had generally been done according to 

- 326 - 



unvaried moirk, was rjnderraken by some of 
die great artists of die tune, Dereria, Ddbrodbe, 
Louis Boulanger, Ralet, Eugene Lami, amd 
Robert Henry. Them began a flourishing period 
for die art. Others came to replace or be added to 
the first artists of this troeremiraance, Philastieaind 
Cambon, Lavastre, Joseph Thierry, Rube and Cha- 
peron, Cheret, Gorpenx, Jambon and many 
others, each setting his indrndtiDial stamp on the 
production of scenery composed, book and execut- 
ed according to his own conception. 

The great m a *"*' of the period and tine traes: 
4 painter' of the French school,, Eugene Ddbcroix, 
registered his protest against the prejuwfoes oi 
badry infimned or Tohmtarity Wind people, who 
persisted in looking upon scene paintiiag AS a 
second-rate art in a letter to Mamurke Sand: 
" These people [the scene paimers] know what 
we are never taught, what we only find after feel- 
ing oar way for a long time and going through 
periods of despair. We fight against truth before 
we are abie to apprehend it, whik they reach 
it at once directly,, through the exact sdenri- 
Sc principles of decoration. " Delating these men* 
who legally were held to be rnanuJbccnrers paying

a patent, he states how thorough their prepara- 
tion must be. "His art is the mathematical, the 
' great' art, precise in its methods and sure in its 
results. A scene painter must possess a sufficient 
knowledge of perpective to enable him to play 
with it in such a way that none may perceive it ; 
he must also be mathematically sure of the relative 
relations of all the tones and colours he makes use 
of. How much they will lose or gain when lighted 
up artificially is a question of practice, but even 
in this respect practice is not everything, a man 
must have the gift as well as be an expert in 
order to make these great pictures look like 
nature. " 

Nowadays the name of the scene-painter shares 
in the success of a play and sometimes 
this success is owing largely to his work - 
but this public acknowledgement is of recent date. 
The"ophile Gautier wondered why people should 
pay more attention and attach more importance 
to a simply pleasing small picture at the Salon 
than to the great compositions for the stage which 
require not only much art and much knowledge, 
for the slightest error would involve shocking 
results, but mastery of technique as well and

much historical learning. " To satisfy the demands 
of every playwright '' he said " one should possess 
a thorough knowledge of all the countries, the 
periods, the styles, the architecture, the flora of 
the five parts of the Earth ! " 

The artists of the present day, who have at their 
disposal much perfected machinery unknown to 
their elders, continue their tradition. These won- 
derful workers in the art of representing any given 
scene are, first of all. good painters whose honesty 
as such goes hand in hand with their gift of inven- 
tion and their skill in construction. The public 
having become more and more exacting in all that 
pertains to beauty and precision of stage setting, 
the artist's [position has risen and his responsa- 
bilities increased, with the result that in order 
to keep pace with the more severe demands of 
the public, his work has steadily grown in qua- 
lity. The many sketches which are made before 
the execution of the maquette (that is of the 
small model to scale) enable us to appreciate the 
painter's inspiration and to follow the evolution 
of his creative idea in his effort to realize it defini- 
tively. Together with the sketches and maquettes 
of artists whose reputation is established by many

important achievements, Messrs. Amable, Bailly, 
Simas, Rochette, and Laudrin, Visconti, Bertin, 
Georges Mouveau, G: Pinchon etc., it would have 
been fitting to show that of Messrs. Jusseaume, 
Jeanselme and Guerard, and Roussin etc., but at 
the time this exhibition was being organized they 
had become soldiers and were fighting at the 
front. An important place has naturally been given 
to the artists who have occasionally turned to the 
art of scene painting, men of research and initia- 
tive called forward by Mr. Rouche, now director 
of the National Academy of Music, when the head 
ofa much smaller theater, the Theatre des Arts, who 
have formed a school having its peculiar tendencies 
and originality while each man of the company 
preserves his own personality. And where again, for 
the same reason, there are gaps ; it has not been 
possible to show the work of the rivals and friends 
of Messrs. Maxuve, Dethomas, and Rene Piot. 
The American public will surely take into account 
the difficulty of making such an exhibition under 
the present circumstances. The originals in glass 
of the scenery produced through luminous pro- 
jections, deserves careful examination. They are 
by M. Eugene Frey, the bold conqueror of light

transforms scenery v.-ith the shimmering 
changes, the subde transitions of nature itself. 

It is rather melancholy to think that those 
tnaquettes are often all that remains of the splen- 
did dibotatL works which have been the harmon- 
ious setting to the plays of a period. These great 
pictures representing so much hard toil are 
doomed to an ephemeral existence unless an unu- 
sual success causes die play to remain in the 
repertoire. They disappear from the theater and 
return roiled up to the store-house until the can- 
vas is repainted white to be used again. The scene 
painter must accept this fate. He produces uncea- 
singly merely to see his creations unceasingly des- 
troyed. The same thing happens to the designer 
of costumes. But for a moment, does he see his 
dream realized ; nothing remains of it but the 
water color sketch which is, a least, charming in 
itself as we may see by those of Messrs. Pinchon, 
Pave Steek, Hot, Dethomas, Betoat, Albert Lam- 
bert (the tragedian who draws in first rate style), 
Landolff, etc. To all these models of costumes have 
been added some by Bianchini who was a master 
of the art. The mAing of costumes is also an art

and one essentially Parisian. It seemed indispen- 
sable to send some small finished models showing 
the skill and taste of these specialists. 

The ' properties ' which hold an important 
place on the stage are now required to be exact 
copies of the real article. Made of artistically work- 
ed paste board, such a reproduction as that of the 
famous vase of the Alhambra shows the great 
care bestowed on work of this sort. The by-laws 
of the illustrious theater known as the Comidie 
Fran^aise did not permit of the sending any of 
the historical treasures composing its rich museum. 
But its Artistes Socitaires have sent their auto- 
graph greetings to the visitors of the San Francisco 
Exhibition. The Comedie Franchise speaks not 
only in the name of the French stage, but in 
invoking the firm friendship which has united 
the two countries since the birth of the American 
Republic, it also expresses the sentiments of the 
whole French nation.

La Grange was the " Orator " of Moliere's company ; it was

public. Besides these junctions, this excellent comedian looked after 
the common interest : Now we should say he was general mana-

He has left a register, in which he wrote down from the 28^ 
of April i6$y till the _?ist of August i68f, the titles of the plays 
represented every day, the receipts and expenses, and anything 
happening to the Company. The Comedie- Franchise has had print-
