Guide des collections 2 : Sculptures romanes
This second volume in the series of guides to the Musée des Augustins fills the gap left by Paul Mesplé's work which has been out of print for some years. In a form which is more accessible to the layman, it covers the museum's collection of Romanesque sculptures. Notable for its exceptional richness and overall consistency, this collection is comprised mainly of works from the three major religious buildings in Toulouse: the monastery of Notre-Dame de la Daurade, the basilica of Saint-Sernin and the cathedral of Saint-Etienne.

Carolus-Duran 1837-1917
Musée des Augustins, 27 juin-29 septembre 2003, Paris, RMN.
21 x 28. 216 pages. 120 illustrations dont 90 en couleurs. 34,50 €.
Le catalogue de l'exposition a pour ambition de faire redécouvrir l'un des peintres les plus doués de son époque, mais dont l'immense succès mondain sous la Troisième République a souvent masqué la profondeur. Cet artiste lillois ne fut pas seulement le grand portraitiste si célèbre en son temps qu'on se disputait ses oeuvres : il a aussi fait preuve d'une grande sensibilité et d'une étonnante liberté d'expression dans nombre de paysages ou d'études souvent méconnus. Homme résolument moderne, il a vu naître le mouvement impressionniste et devint l'ami proche de peintres d'avant-garde comme Manet ou Fantin-Latour.

  • Cent ans de sculpture (1750-1820) - La collection du musée des Augustins (One Hundred Years of Sculpture (1750-1820) - The Collection of the Musée des Augustins)

Cent ans de sculpture
Musée des Augustins, 2 March-9 September 2002, 108 pp, illustrated in colour 16.80 €
On the occasion of this exhibition, the museum has published a work half-way between an exhibition catalogue and a descriptive catalogue; it covers several important 18th Century works by Pajou, Houdon and Lemoyne which have remained in the rooms allocated to the permanent collections, where they are usually on display. In fact, we wished this publication to reflect the richness of the museum's collections, whether kept in the galleries or in the storerooms.
ISBN : 2-901820-31-X

  • Nicolas Tournier (1590-1639). Un peintre caravagesque. (Nicolas Tournier (1590-1639). A Caravaggesque Painter). Out of print

 Nicolas Tournier
Musée des Augustins, 30 March - 1 July 2001, 190 pp. Joint Pub. Ville de Toulouse/Somogy 38,10€ hardback (SOLD OUT)
Organised by the Musée des Augustins from April to June 2001, this was the first monographic exhibition to be dedicated to the works of Nicolas Tournier (1590 - 1639), who was one of the most important French painters in the style of Caravaggio. His profound and moving work has been compared to that of Georges de la Tour and the Le Nain brothers. Forty pictures, brought together from countries throughout the world, were assembled in Toulouse to show the quality and range of his work. The catalogue enabled clarification of numerous hazy areas in the life of the artist, who was active in Montbéliard, Rome, Narbonne, Carcassone and Toulouse.
ISBN : 2-901820-30-1

  • Les peintres du Roi 1648-1793. (The King's Painters 1648-1793). Out of print

Les peintres du Roi
Musée des Augustins, 30 June - 2 October 2000, 328 pp. Joint Pub. Ville de Tours/Ville de Toulouse/R.M.N 43 €.
Reception pieces enabled artists to be received into the Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture, and the genre was studied for the first time in this major exhibition. The greatest names in French painting submitted to this exercise: these paintings sometimes became famous but were more often forgotten. The catalogue takes stock of this glorious period in French painting, seen through the eyes of today's most eminent specialists. Its exhaustive list of some 400 existing reception pieces makes this a seminal work.
ISBN : 2-7118-4016-6

  • Augustus Saint Gaudens 1848-1907 - Un maître de la sculpture américaine - An American Master Sculptor

Augustus Saint Gaudens 1848-1907
Musée des Augustins, 12 February - 30 May 1999, Musée National de la Coopération Franco-Américaine, Blérancourt, 26 June - 18 October 1999, 214 pp, illustrated in colour. Also available in English. Joint Pub. Ville de Toulouse/R.M.N./Somogy éditions d'art 29,75 €
A major figure in late 19th Century American sculpture (he was nicknamed the "American Michelangelo") and leader of the "American Renaissance", Augustus Saint-Gaudens was the father of modern American sculpture. Saint-Gaudens' life and career spanned two continents, bearing witness to the fruitful artistic and cultural exchanges between France and the United States at the end of the 19th Century. Whilst he is very well-known on the other side of the Atlantic, this was the first major exhibition of his work in France, comprising more than 130 pieces. This catalogue, the fruit of collaboration between French and American specialists, reflects his work.
ISBN : 2-901820-28-X

  • Jean-Paul Laurens. Peintre d'histoire. 1838-1921 (Jean-Paul Laurens, Painter of History. 1838-1921)

Jean-Paul Laurens.
Musée des Augustins, 4 February - 4 May 1998, 208 pp, Joint Pub. Ville de Toulouse/R.M.N/Musée d'Orsay 38,10 €
The Jean-Paul Laurens exhibition was mounted under the joint direction of Laurence des Cars, curator of the Musée d'Orsay, and Alain Daguerre de Hureaux, curator of the Musée des Augustins.

Relying on contributions from various specialists, it throws valuable light on the development of a late 19th Century artist and puts it into the perspective and context necessary for analysis.
ISBN : 2-7118-3597-9

  • Visages du Grand Siècle. Le portrait français sous le règne de Louis XIV. (Faces of the "Grand Siècle". French Portraiture during the Reign of Louis XIV). Out of print

Visages du Grand Siècle.
Musée des Beaux-Arts de Nantes, 20 June - 15 September 1997. Musée des Augustins, 8 October 1997 - 5 January 1998, 169 pp, Joint Pub. Ville de Toulouse/Somogy éditions d'art 43 €
The 17th Century was the pinnacle of portraiture. This genre, the most noble after that of historical painting, allows an intriguing exploration of French society in the age of Louis XIV. Whether viewed as a historical document or a work of art, the portrait subscribes to the cult of the image. A few specialists restrict themselves to portraiture only but the painter does not exist who has not tackled the genre at one time or another. This catalogue provides the most comprehensive study of this area to date.
ISBN : 2-85056-279-3

Musée des Augustins, 14 December 1996 - 31 March 1997, 215 pp, Joint Pub. Ville de Toulouse/Somogy éditions d'art 29,75 €
The eighty or so sculptures presented here bear witness to the fullness and variety of commissions given to artists, and reflect the main currents in the history of 17th Century art. Famous sculptors such as Gervais Drouet and Marc Arcis give us some idea of the exceptional brilliance with which the sculpture of Toulouse shone in Louis XIV's France.
