Hugo related art

Postby 23623 » Wed Feb 15, 2017 1:36 pm

Sorry for the dumb title. :oops:

Found this in Gustave Courbet's wikipedia page:
His first works were an Odalisque inspired by the writing of Victor Hugo ...

and immediately started searching this painting but Google didn't give me anything useful. So does anyone know about paintings related to Hugo? Could be illustrations of his work or just art inspired by him in general. Post them here if you do!

Btw, Google did give me this though:

He could have been an artist instead of a writer. Amazing work.

I have actually made bullets like they're doing in my avatar. Then loaded the gun with a ramrod, and shot it. But I'm not feeling real good about guns right now.

That's quite a collection. Lots there to like but particularly I liked the Cosette with letter in the style of Aubrey Beardsley.

My fine arts major friend actually found the thing that inspired Courbet's painting today! According to "French 19th Century Painting and Literature" by Ulrich Finke, Courbet was inspired by Hugo's poem "La Captive", specifically the first line: Si je n'étais captive, j'aimerais ce pays. Unfortunately his paintings were lost so we won't be able to see them. But if you're interested, here's another painting based on the same poem.

Also according to this website there are several musical versions of "La Captive", like this one composed by Hector Berlioz. I assumed Berlioz was inspired by Hugo's writing as well?

That Paris museum website also has a nice collection of stuff related to Hugo, including paintings by him and illustrations of his works.

And lastly, sorry for going off topic but this is my new ideal travel destination now. I need to see it next time I go to France!! :shock:

Tried to google it but couldn’t find any useful information. Does anyone know about this painting? How is it related to Hugo?

The apotheosis! Wow! They really did hold him in high regard. He's also in the pantheon of Cao Dai saints along with notables such as Jesus and Buddha.

Costumes of 1827. They would still be around in 1832--people don't just throw away dresses especially expensive ones like that. That's my guess, anyway.

Ooh I love the hats! Stage-Cosettes should totally wear them. :D

Indeed! It was really cool of Google to do that, I thought. :D

Yes, it was. I never expected anything so literary. Notice how that last one shows him on an island?
