Bernard Salomon, illustrateur lyonnais

0.00 CHF tax incl.

Bernard Salomon (c. 1508–c. 1561) worked mainly for Jean de Tournes as a designer (and probably engraver) of woodcuts for book-illustration, elegantly conceived in the manner of Fontainebleau. The work attributed to him (over 1600 pictures) covers classical and Renaissance literature, astronomy and architecture, city views, emblem books, royal and princely entries, and above all the Bible. The present study provides a critical listing of his works, analyses his use of his sources and gives an indication of his extensive influence on painting, engraving, ceramics, enamelwork, furniture and other applied arts. The book discusses how word and image interact in the different modes of illustration: didactic, documentary, explicative, narrative, moralistic, aesthetic. Over 260 photographs illustrate his work comprehensively, demonstrating its range and quality and establishing the stylistic grounds for attribution, and the identification of sources and influence, yet also demonstrating his originality and imagination.
