..., Camille (pseud. of Camille Faust ) ( 1872–1945 ). French poet , novelist , art critic , and travel writer . A champion of Impressionism and Symbolism and a prolific author of unusual critical flexibility, Mauclair abandoned poetry and the novel to produce books on writers, musicians, painters, and picturesque places. With Lugné‐Poë he founded the Théâtre de l'Œuvre. His novel, Le Soleil des morts ( 1898 ), with its reverential portrait of Mallarmé as Calixte Armel, is still in print. [ David Steel...

..., Camille ( Séverin Faust ) ( 1872–1945 ) French writer . His large and varied output included fiction, poetry, and literary and musical criticism, but he is best known for his writings on art, in which he supported Symbolism but was a fervent opponent of various forms of avant-garde art, seeing himself as an upholder of French tradition. Mauclair's The French Impressionists ( 1903 ) was the first book on the movement to appear in English (this translation preceded the French edition— L'Impressionnisme, son histoire, son esthétique, ses...

...‘ Donatello au milieu des fauves!’ (Donatello among the wild beasts). The remark was printed in the daily newspaper Gil Blas on 17 October and the name immediately caught on. Predictably, the Fauvist pictures came in for a good deal of mockery and abuse; the critic Camille Mauclair ( 1872–1945 ), for example, wrote that ‘A pot of paint has been flung in the face of the public.’ However, there were also some sympathetic reviews, and Gertrude and Leo Stein bought Matisse’s Woman with a Hat (priv. coll.), the picture that was attracting the worst...

...effectively banished. Realistic landscapes and interiors became a thing of the past. Bakst saw stage design as a sensual, tactile experience with the body as the organizing element. Moreover, Schéhérazade seemed to establish the ideal of collaboration as paramount. Critic Camille Mauclair in his review claimed that the ballet was a “dream-like spectacle beside which the Wagnerian synthesis itself is but a clumsy barbarism.” As later critics would note, however, it seemed to augur not Wagner's Gesamtkunstwerk as much as it heralded the dominance of the...

...in the middle of the same gallery and exclaimed: ‘ Donatello au milieu des fauves! ’ (‘Donatello among the wild beasts’). The remark was printed in the daily newspaper Gil Blas on 17 October and the name immediately caught on. Other critics were similarly hostile— Camille Mauclair ( 1872–1945 ), for example, wrote that ‘A pot of paint has been flung in the face of the public’—but there were also some sympathetic reviews. Matisse was the leading figure of the group and the others (all of them a few years younger than Matisse) included Derain , ...

..., Francis Vielé-Griffin , Émile Verhaeren , Adolphe Retté , Maurice Maeterlinck , Camille Mauclair , and Stuart Merrill added their names in the years immediately following. Vers libre caused either considerable enthusiasm or anxiety, since its rejection of a traditional metrical order in favor of unbridled individuality appeared highly subversive in the context of Third Republican efforts to eradicate difference and create a stable, unified national identity; Mauclair, in F. T. Marinetti ’s Enquête internationale sur le vers libre ( International...

...as Julius Meier‐Graefe in Germany and George Moore and Frank Rutter in Britain was important in increasing awareness and understanding of the movement (the first book on Impressionism in English, published in 1903 , was a translation of a work by the French critic Camille Mauclair ).
