Jean Gabriel Domergue 1889 – 1962


Jean-Gabriel Domergue est né à Bordeaux le 4 Mars 1889.

Peintre au talent extrêmement précoce, Domergue, alors âgé seulement de 17 ans, exposa au Salon des Artistes Français dès 1906. En 1913, il est Second Prix de Rome, médaille d’or du Salon en 1920, puis expose Hors-Concours.

Tout d’abord remarqué pour ses paysages qu’il peint avec une grande facilité, c’est à partir des années 1920 que s’opère le tournant décisif de sa carrière. Il devient alors le peintre de "la Parisienne". Domergue va inventer un nouveau type de femme, mince, désinvolte, gracile, toujours élégante, et dont les grands yeux regardent le monde avec envie, du haut d’un cou étiré. "Je suis l’inventeur de la pin-up" déclarera-t-il plus tard. Il peindra environ 3 000 portraits.

Si Domergue peint de nombreux nus (ses modèles sont généralement des actrices en vogue ou de jeunes danseuses), il est également et surtout le peintre de l’aristocratie et des mondaines en tout genre (Liane de Pougy ou encore Nadine, la future baronne de Rothschild, par exemple). Domergue sera également un des plus grands organisateurs de fêtes mémorables à Paris ("Le Bal Vénitien" à l’Opéra en 1922 ou d’autres sur le thème du Second Empire), mais aussi à Cannes, Monte-Carlo, Juan-les-Pins, Biarritz et bien sûr Deauville.

Très influent, il joue un rôle essentiel dans l’évolution de la mode de son époque. Il dessinera pour les plus célèbres couturiers, dont Paul Poiret et Henry Marque, de nombreux modèles de robes, chapeaux ou accessoires.

Si 1920, marque le tournant définitif de Domergue vers la représentation féminine (seule ou en couple), l’évolution de son style se poursuit tout au long de sa carrière artistique.
Sa forme quasi définitive apparaît au début des années 30. Il est alors à son apogée et à partir de cette période, ses tableaux ne sont plus datés, bien que souvent titrés au dos (huiles toiles ou panneaux d’isorel) et parfois numérotés. C’est la connaissance de cette évolution qui permettra à un œil exercé de situer l’œuvre avec une relative précision.

Domergue a l’art de mettre en lumière le côté léger et pétillant de la jolie femme telle qu’on l’imagine. Sa virtuosité et l’élégance de son pinceau l’inscrivent dans la lignée des Fragonnard et des Watteau, artistes qui ont au XVIIIème siècle contribué à fixer les canons de la beauté de leur époque.

Sa formation classique pimentée de fantaisie, font qu’un portrait de Domergue ne ressemble à aucun autre.

Si la femme semblait jusqu’alors généralement mélancolique et évanescente, chez Domergue, elle est tout le contraire. La femme devient légère, aérienne, pétillante comme des bulles de Champagne, annonçant ainsi à sa manière la révolution féminine des prochaines décennies, et nul ne peut rester insensible face à la gaieté, à la sensibilité et au subtil graphisme de sa touche.

Un aspect de la vie de Jean-Gabriel Domergue est moins connu: il fut à partir de 1955 le Conservateur du musée Jacquemart-André à Paris. Sous sa houlette, y furent organisées d’extraordinaires expositions, consacrées notamment à Léonard de Vinci, Seurat, Prud’Hon, Toulouse-Lautrec, Van Gogh, Berthe Morisot et Francisco Goya. C’est durant l’organisation de celle consacrée à celui qui fut son maître, Giovanni Boldini, qu’il s’éteindra en 1962.

Domergue était Chevalier de la Légion d’Honneur et membre de l’Institut à l’Académie des Beaux-Arts.

Der Blick

Schaust du mich aus deinen Augen
Lächelnd wie aus Himmeln an,
Fühl’ ich wohl, daß keine Lippe
Solche Sprache führen kann.
Könnte sie’s auch wörtlich sagen,
Was dem Herzen tief entquillt,
Still den Augen aufgetragen,
Wird es süßer nur erfüllt.
Und ich seh’ des Himmels Quelle,
Die mir lang verschlossen war,
Wie sie bricht in reinster Helle
Aus dem reinsten Augenpaar.
Und ich öffne still im Herzen
Alles, alles diesem Blick,
Und den Abgrund meiner Schmerzen
Füllt er strömend aus mit Glück.

Joseph Freiherr von Eichendorf


Anmut


Zur Anmut muss sowohl der körperliche Bau als der Charakter beitragen;

jener durch seine Biegsamkeit, Eindrücke anzunehmen und ins Spiel gesetzt zu werden,

dieser durch die sittliche Harmonie der Gefühle.

In beiden war die Natur dem Weibe günstiger als dem Manne.

Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller, (1759 – 1805)

Alle Birken grünen (Hermann Löns)

Hermann Löns 
(1866-1914)

 

Alle Birken grünen …

Alle Birken grünen in Moor und Heid,
Jeder Brahmbusch leuchtet wie Gold,
Alle Heidlerchen dudeln vor Fröhlichkeit,
Jeder Birkhahn kullert und tollt.

Meine Augen, die gehen wohl hin und her
Auf dem schwarzen, weißflockigen Moor,
Auf dem braunen, grünschäumenden Heidemeer
Und schweben zum Himmel empor.

Zum Blauhimmel hin, wo ein Wölkchen zieht
Wie ein Wollgrasflöckchen so leicht,
Und mein Herz, es singt sein leises Lied,
Das auf zum Himmel steigt.

Ein leises Lied, ein stilles Lied
Ein Lied, so fein und lind,
Wie ein Wölkchen, das über die Bläue zieht,
Wie ein Wollgrasflöckchen im Wind.

Biographie Charles-Amable- Lenoir (1860-1926)


Charles-Amable Lenoir (22 October 1860 – 1926) was a French painter. Like his mentor, William-Adolphe Bouguereau, he was an academic painter and painted realistic portraits as well as mythological and religious scenes. His artistic career was so prestigious that he won the Prix de Rome twice and was awarded the Légion d’honneur.[1]

Lenoir was born in Châtellaillon, a small town just outside of La Rochelle. His mother was a seamstress and his father was a customs officer. When he was young, his father was reassigned and the family moved to Fouras. He did not start out in life as an artist, but instead began his education at a teachers’ college in La Rochelle. Upon graduation, he worked as a teacher and supervisor at the lycée in Rochefort.[1][2]

 

Lenoir’s award-winning Le Calme, which he painted using his 21-year-old wife as a model.[3]

In August 1883 he was accepted into the École des Beaux-Arts de Paris, he also joined the Académie Julian where he was a student of William-Adolphe Bouguereau and Tony Robert-Fleury. Lenoir made his artistic debut at the Salon in 1887 and continued to exhibit there until his death. He was quickly noticed in the art world, and in 1889 won the Second Prix de Rome for his painting, Jésus et le paralytique (Jesus and a Sick Man with Palsy), and he won the First Prix de Rome the following year for Le Reniement de Saint Pierre (The Denial of St. Peter).[1][2]

His awards did not stop with the Prix de Rome; works shown at the Salons also won prizes, and he received a third-class medal in 1892 for Le Grenier a Vingt Ans (The Garret at twenty years) and a second-class medal in 1896 for La Mort de Sappho (The Death of Sappho).[4][5] In 1900, he won a bronze medal at the world’s fair in Paris for Le Calme (The Calm), a painting of his new wife, Eugénie Lucchesi.[1][3]

In tribute to his lasting appeal, Lenoir was appointed a Chevalier de la Légion d’honneur in 1903. He kept a house in Fouras and returned every summer. He died there and was buried on 1 August 1926. In order to commemorate him, a monument was erected there in 1937 which stands to this day.[1]
