Les Erreurs dans la peinture, by Christiane Lavaquerie-Klein and Laurence Paix-Rusteroltz
When Ingres painted a woman, with no hesitation he added vertebras, extremely long arms, too round hips, in a totally unnatural position. But she was even more sensual and desirable. Here is a history of painting from a new and unexpected angle: the errors. 34 masterpieces are presented (including Van Eyck, Veronese, Manet, Matisse, Picasso and Pasquiat). The book points out the confusions, mistakes, anachronisms, inaccuracies these geniuses in painting represented, on purpose or not, in their works. Readers will open an eye on what one usually doesn’t see… Other titles in the series: Errors in 20th century history, Errors in architecture.
