Welcome to the Louvre, a universe where on canvas, in marble or clay – in every nook of the museum – murder is present... The Louvre Murder Club investigates and interprets a choice of some thirty artworks by applying the principles of criminology and art history for a unique "criminartistic' analysis. All come from very different styles and periods. But all – from ancient Greek amphorae to nineteenth-century French paintings, from canvases by Rubens to those by Delacroix, David or Ingres – have one thing in common: they depict mythological or historical murders, their protagonists and their stories. Each work will be treated as a crime scene and will lead to a fascinating investigation inspired by the principles of legal and forensic teams. Into what category does the murder fall? What are the factual and historical issues? Who are the victims? What portrait can be drawn of the guilty? What is their profile, their background, their motive? Bringing the truth to light will depend on the unexpected answers given to these questions.

Les œuvres du Louvre dévoilent leur morbide secret ! Sur toile, dans le marbre ou l'argile, le meurtre est partout présent au musée du Louvre. En appliquant les principes de la criminologie et de l'histoire de l'art pour une analyse " criminartistique ", Scènes de crime au Louvre passe au crible de l'enquête un choix d'une trentaine d'œuvres qui ont en commun de représenter des meurtres, leurs protagonistes, leurs histoires. Avec des révélations souvent surprenantes ! Bienvenue au Louvre, un univers où, sur toile, dans le marbre ou l'argile, le meurtre est présent dans chaque recoin du musée... En appliquant les principes de la criminologie et de l'histoire de l'art pour une analyse " criminartistique ", Scènes de crime au Louvre se propose d'étudier et d'interpréter un choix d'une trentaine d'œuvres d'art. Toutes sont d'époques et de styles très différents, mais toutes, des amphores de la Grèce ancienne aux peintures françaises du XIXe siècle, des toiles de Rubens à celles de Delacroix, David ou Ingres, ont une chose en commun : représenter des meurtres, qu'ils soient mythologiques ou historiques, leurs protagonistes, leurs histoires. Chaque œuvre sera traitée comme une scène de crime et donnera lieu à une enquête fouillée s'inspirant des principes des équipes judiciaires et médicolégales. De quelle typologie le meurtre relève-t-il ? Quels en sont les enjeux factuels et historiques ? Qui sont les victimes ? Et surtout, quel portrait peut-on tracer des coupables ? Quel est leur profil, leur background, leur alibi ? Des réponses apportées à ces questions dépendra la possibilité de faire éclater la vérité au grand jour.

Throughout his career, Philip Guston's work metamorphosed from figural to abstract and back to figural. In the 1950s, Guston (1913--1980) produced a body of shimmering abstract paintings that made him -- along with Willem de Kooning, Jackson Pollock, and Franz Kline -- an influential abstract expressionist of the "gestural" tendency. In the late 1960s, with works like T he Studio came his most radical shift. Drawing from the imagery of his early murals and from elements in his later drawings, ignoring the prevailing "coolness" of Minimalism and antiform abstraction, Guston invented for these late works a cast of cartoon-like characters to articulate a vision that was at once comic, crude, and complex. In The Studio, Guston offers a darkly comic portrait of the artist as a hooded Ku Klux Klansman, painting a self-portrait. In this concise and generously illustrated book, Craig Burnett examines The Studio in detail. He describes the historical and personal motivations for Guston's return to figuration and the (mostly negative) critical reaction to the work from Hilton Kramer and others. He looks closely at the structure of The Studio, and at the influence of Piero della Francesca, Manet, and Krazy Kat, among others; and he considers the importance of the column of smoke in the painting -- as a compositional device and as a ghost of abstraction and metaphysics. The Studio signals not only Guston's own artistic evolution but a broader shift, from the medium-centric and teleological claim of modernism to the discursive, carnivalesque, and mucky world of postmodernism.
