About the Catalogue: The Paintings of Paul Cézanne, an online catalogue raisonné is the first installment of the artist’s complete works. It capitalizes on the versatility of digital technology and takes Cézanne scholarship in a new direction. The works in this catalogue are organized in five consecutive groups or themes: landscape, portrait, figure composition, still life, and bather.
Catalogue Entries include:
Jean-Pierre Cassigneul has been painting his extraordinary work since the 1950’s. His first show was in 1952 in Paris, when he was just 17 years old. He is known for creating works of women in floral hats that often reflect the fashion or the trends of the time….Cassignuel paintings embrace the flat, bright colors forming his compositions. The frequent use of a dark outline to define the shape of a sailboat or a woman’s silhouette are reminiscent of woodblock imagery. His subjects are also of everyday scenes as if you have just walked into a moment in time [‘A Closer Look at Jean-Pierre Cassigneul,’ Ackerman’s Fine Art Blog].
Though still living, Cassigneul’s aesthetic reflects that of his predecessors: he was greatly influenced by the early 20th century Post-Impressionist group Les Nabis– Pierre Bonnard, Edourard Vuillard, Maurice Denis, et al- as well as by the work of Dutch Expressionist and Fauvist Kees Van Dongen.

Henri Matisse (French, 1869 – 1954), Olga Merson , 1911. Oil on canvas, 39 ¼ x 31 ¾ inches. The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Purchase funded by the Agnes Cullen Arnold Endowment Fund. © 2014 Succession H. Matisse / Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York.
“In this striking portrait of his student Olga Merson, Henri Matisse does not convey her personality through conventional means such as costume or gesture. Instead, he reveals the physical struggle of his painting process.
One of the major innovators of the 20th century, Matisse accorded color an unprecedented structural and expressive role in his compositions. In 1905 he helped launch the century’s first avant-garde movement, Fauvism. (Confronted by the boldly colored paintings of Matisse and contemporaries at the 1905 Salon d’Automne in Paris, a critic claimed that the works could have been painted by fauves, or wild beasts.)
Matisse moved away from the bright colors of Fauvism into new artistic terrain, and he painted Olga Merson two years after the movement’s dissolution. He leaves traces of his effort as he works through the placement and rendering of his sitter: the scraping and over-painting of the face, neck, and forearm, and the bold black marks that so severely reaffirm the figure´s placement on the canvas. Yet he also conveys a powerful impression of Merson. She fills the frame, and the curved diagonals anchor her to the composition, creating a sense of monumentality” (Museum of Fine Arts Houston)
The Salvador Dali Catalogue Raisonné was launched in 2004 under the auspices of Gala-Salvador Dalí Foundation, to mark the centennial of the artist’s birth and with the purpose of assembling and sharing — as an online publication — a rigorous and comprehensive body of information about the works painted by Dalí between 1910 and 1983. The basic information used in the catalogue comes from the very extensive documentary archive of the Fundació Gala-Salvador Dalí, and has been supplemented with material from the equally important archive of the Salvador Dalí Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida.
Each catalogue entry contains relevant information about the work — title, date, technique, support/medium, dimensions, location, signature & inscriptions, provenance, exhibitions, comments and bibliography — and in most cases, a color reproduction of the work .

The Modernism Lab at Yale University is an open access (content to is freely available to anyone), virtual space dedicated to research into the roots of literary modernism. Since its inception in 2005, The Modernism Lab has supported over eighty graduate and undergraduate students at Yale and ten other universities. The project as a whole aims “to reconstitute the social and intellectual webs that linked these writers—correspondence, personal acquaintance, reading habits—and their influence on the major works of the period.” Research focuses on the literary, intellectual, and historical impact of Modernists during the period of 1914-1926. Particular emphasis is given to their involvement in the political movements of the day such as socialism, feminism, liberalism, nationalism, and imperialism. The website features:
The Women Artists Archives National Directory (WAAND) is an online directory to U.S. archival collections of primary source materials by and about women visual artists and women’s arts organizations in the U.S. from January 1, 1945, to present day. WAAND consists of three linked databases: a Repository Directory, Collections, and an Entity (artist or artists’ organization) Database. The Repository Directory is a database of organizations; it includes name, location, contact information, services provided, audiences served, and access policies for each organization. The Collections Database, the heart of the directory, describes the primary source material on a particular woman artist or artists’ organization that is held by a particular repository. The Entity Database includes entries for artist organizations and collectives such as artist publications, alternative spaces, and artists’ communities.
WAAND’s principal investigators are Dr. Ferris Olin, head of the Margery Somers Foster Center and curator of the Mary H. Dana Women Artist Series at the Mabel Smith Douglass Library, RUL, and Judith K. Brodsky, Rutgers distinguished professor emerita in the Department of Visual Arts and founding director of the Brodsky Center for Print, Mason Gross School of the Arts. Grace Agnew, Rutgers Associate Librarian for Digital Library Systems, and Jane D. Johnson, project manager for the Moving Image Collections (MIC) and visiting scholar at Rutgers, are WAAND’s digital architects. Nicole Plett is project manager….(Read more)

“I believe that the issues we women were involved in were really so universal. We were trying hard to touch every part of the world; every part of thinking; and every part of what was going on here, there, and everywhere”
Miriam Schapiro, 2004
