The Lady with the Unicorn

 

The sense of senses: "The Lady with the Unicorn" (a wall hanging including six tapistries,

dating from the end of the 15th century) National Museum of the Middle Ages, Hôtel

de Cluny, Paris The Hôtel de Cluny in Paris, the French national museum of the Middle

Ages, possesses a wall hanging made up of six of the world's most famous tapistries.

Reproduced in every way and form, these tapistries have come to symbolize a certain

idea of the romanesque late Middle Ages. Splendid ladies clad in sumptuous gowns,

exotic animals, flowers and trees: the tapistries all seek to please the eye. But once the

visitor has gotten over his initial amazement, he starts asking questions. What do the

coats of arms, depicted several times on each tapistry, represent? What exactly are the

ladies doing? Why is each lion accompanied by a unicorn? What do the trees, flowers,

and different animals signify? Who had these splendid tapistries made? And what for?

Who was the artist who sketched the plans? Which weaver wove them? Since George

Sand rediscovered these tapistries in the 19th century, specialists have been speculating.

Today, several questions have been answered, but not all: "The Lady with the Unicorn"

has well kept part of her secret.

 

KANDINSKY [1866-1944]

 

Figures de l'invisible: "Jaune-Rouge-Bleu" (1925) Centre Georges-Pompidou, Paris When

Kandinsky painted this work, he was a teacher at the Bauhaus design school. He therefore

applied the colour techniques that he taught his students to his painting. Kandinsky often

said: "Form is an external expression of an internal content." But where do the differing

subjective points of view of the spectator and the artist meet? What does the work really

represent? These are only some of the many questions asked in this 26th film of the

Palettes series.

 

BACON [1909-1992]

 

Les Figures de l'excès: ''Trois personnages dans une pièce" (1964) Musée national d'art

moderne, Centre Georges-Pompidou, Paris Steeped with allusions to Greek mythology

as well as to the painter's private life, Francis Bacon's ''Three people in a Room'' triptych

stages an abstract drama. How can horror be fascinating? How can violence and death be

partly conjured by plastic beauty? These are some of the questions posed in this episode

of Palettes, which also leads us to Bacon's London studio, an amazing chaos of objects

and paintings.

MANET [1832-1883]

 

"Olympia", Edouard Manet, 1865 (Musée d'Orsay, Paris) In 1865, a furor broke out

at the Salon. Edouard Manet exhibited a modern re-working of Titian's "Venus of

Urbino" - a pale-skinned, naked, girl with an indifferent gaze, stretched on a divan.

Comments included "This yellow-skinned odalisque, this degraded model picked up God

knows where to represent Olympia" and "The crowds flock to see Monsieur Manet's

decadent Olympia as to the gates of a morgue". The model was Victorine Meurent,

one of Manet's favourite sitters. She had posed for "Le Déjeuner sur l'herbe" (Picnic on

the grass) and "Woman with a Parrot", and was later to pose for "The Railway". Her

natural repose and physical appearance made her an ideal model, but she was also an

independent woman with a free lifestyle. The picture was a sort of homage to the studio

model, the object of painters' desires since the Renaissance. It was also deliberately,

provocatively modern. References, Classical and mythological allusions were transposed

to a contemporary interior, and the shock-value was compounded by the fact that

the picture was undoubtedly intended to conjure up the brothel. Seven years after

Manet's death, a group of painters headed by Claude Monet himself started a fund to

buy the picture and donate it to the state. "Olympia" has continued to haunt painters'

imaginations right up to the present: in 1970, Larry Rivers painted a black "Olympia" (now

in the Pompidou Centre).

 

MONET [1840-1926]

 

La Couleur de l'instant: the "Bassins aux nymphéas" In his garden at Giverny, Monet

created a vast canvas to research his landscape paintings. He had a Japanese bridge built

over the pond covered with waterlilies. Anxious to render every variation of the light over

the bridge, the water, the foliage and the flowers according to the season and time of

day, Monet worked simultaneously on several canvases and returned to them again and

again. There are 54 versions of the famous "Waterlilies" from various viewpoints and in

different harmonies. Behind the apparent spontaneity lies a very sophisticated work of

composition.

 

RENOIR [1841-1919]

 

Bright Summer Sundays: "Bal du Moulin de la Galette" (1876) Musée d'Orsay, Paris A

popular ball in the Montmartre district of Paris. A joyful throng gathered on a bright

Sunday afternoon during the summer of 1876. Everything Renoir needed to produce

a painting that is a manifesto of the new impressionist school. But the Impressionistic

effect is far from the mere symphony of blues critized by Renoir's contemporaries. An

in-depth analysis of the work, which may seem difficult at first, reveals many discoveries.

The scale of closely related pigments offers a series of riches nuances, the brush strokes

are subtly overlapping, the perspective remains undetermined, the figures are artfully

blurred: le "Bal du Moulin de la Galette" is much more complex than we think. Renoir,

heir to Watteau's gallant parades, pursued, through his painting, the dream of a Parisian

youngster, far from Degas and Manet's more cynical point of

view.

SASSETTA [1392-1450]

Le Retable en morceaux: Polyptyque pour San Francesco à Borgo San Sepolcro

(1437-1444) Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York A contract is drawn up before a

notary. The painter is engaged to create a painting on wood of the same height and width

as the one already placed over the high altar. He is engaged to deliver it within four years

and to come to hang it himself. He will be paid 510 florins (the highest sum ever paid for a

work during this period). Today, 26 fragments of the altarpiece are dispersed throughout

10 museums worldwide. There is little chance of its ever being rassembled, but here the

puzzle will be pieced together before our eyes. 

UCELLO [1397-1475]

"The Rout of San Romano", Paolo Uccello This film uses video techniques to explore

and reveal how a great work from the past was composed. This trio of huge panels,

now housed in three separate museums, is seen as a sort of manifesto for the new

art movement of the 15th century. Painters were using the principles of perspective

rediscovered in the Ancient Greek treatises, and the innovations of an architect like

Brunelleschi or a goldsmith like Ghiberti, to convey space and depth. But in Uccello,

in addition to a passionate interest in perspective, we find an intense curiosity about

geometrical forms, colour and especially movement. The subject of "The Rout of San

Romano" is an obscure encounter between Florentine and Sienese mercenaries in the

Tuscan hills in 1432. Uccello turns it into a feast for the eyes and the intellect, treating

it as an opportunity to invent contradictory images which have influenced later painters

down to the Cubists and Surrealists. 

PIERO DELLA FRANCESCA [1420-1492]

Le Rêve de la diagonale: "La Flagellation" (vers 1460) Musée national des Marches

(Urbino, Italie) It's the most mysterious painting in the history of art. Although

approximatively 30 hypotheses have been formulated trying to explain its political

meaning, the "Flagellation" painted perhaps between 1450 and 1460 by a very scholarly

artist in full possession of his senses. It's truly a manifesto of a new art and Renaissance

thought.

Titien (1490-1576)

Un souvenir d'Arcadie: "Le Concert champêtre" Musée du Louvre, Paris Giorgione or

Titian? One of the world's most famous painting's attribution remains uncertain to this

day. And what exactly does the pastoral scene represent? Why two nude women next

to two clothed men? What do their gestures mean? What music are they playing? Why

this precise landscape and these sheep? The best way to better understand the painting

and its allusions is to plunge into the sixteenth century Venitian cultural context, and to

confront the painting with its more contemporary counterparts, such as Manet's "Partie

de campagne."

Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519)

Le Sourire et l'entrelacs : "La Vierge, l'enfant Jésus et sainte Anne" Musée du Louvre,

Paris Leonardo da Vinci began his career around 1472 in Florence and made his name as

a portraitist. He worked for several patrons in Italy including Cardinal Giuliano dei Medici

in Rome, after whose death he accepted an invitation of François I, King of France. He

died in May 1519 at "Clos Lucé" near Amboise. "Paintings extends to all functions af the

eye, which are ten in number, namely drakness and light, volume and colour, figure and

setting, distance, proximity, movement and rest" (Leonardo). In the center Saint Anne :

she wears her hair braided, her eyes are lowered and she is smiling. Sealed on her knees,

the Virgin Mary, wearing a low-necked dress, is leaning toward the infant Jesus. Do the

wrintings and drawings of the painter, evidence of the first versions of this painting, give

us a key to this very strange picture ?

Raphael (1483-1520)

Portrait de l'ami en homme de cour: "Portrait de Baldassare Castiglione" (Circa

1483-1520) Musée du Louvre, Paris The renown Count Baldassare Castiglione sat for his

friend Raphael. The finished portrait impressed Rembrandt, Rubens, and several other

painters up to Matisse. Raphael rendered the face open and sympathetic, while baring

the backdrop. Every technical detail is examined to better understand how the portrait

was painted; the cloth, hair style, materials and the model's posture are all of infinite

importance. And beyond the obvious friendship between the painter and his model, the

portrait reveals the philosophy of an entire period

DELACROIX [1798-1863]

Sous les pavés, l'image: "La Liberté guidant le peuple" (1830) Musée du Louvre, Paris In

keeping with the objective of this series, Alain Jaubert flushes out the details, interprets

the symbols, and analyses the composition. Why such polemics when the painting was

unveiled in 1831. Was it the nudity of this armed woman? Or was it the triumphant people

in this realistic setting? The canvas did not come to the Louvre until 1874, well after the

death of the painter.

INGRES [1780-1867]

Le Regard captif: "Le Bain turc" (1859-1863) Musée du Louvre, Paris Having arrived at

the end of his life, Ingres assembled 25 nude women in a lovingly prepared canvas. Even

today, the painting inspires as much repulsion as it does fascination.

AWARDS :

PRIX JAMESON at the Audiovisual Festival organized by the French museums direction,

1992

COURBET [1819-1877]

"Un enterrement à Ornans" (1851) In 1851, Courbet's painting was exhibited at the

Salon. The work, which simply represents a funeral ceremony, nonetheless created a

scandal... Courbet's realism is not just a simple photographic reproduction of real life, but

a veritable metaphysical experience for the eye and the sensorial perception, a new way

of implicating the spectator in a subtle game of mirrors. Inspite its apparent simplicity,

the painting is a complex work full of surprises.
