Homage to Adrienne Fontainas

Passionate Pilgrim for the Arts


Edited By Jane Block and Claude Sorgeloos

The twenty-two essays in this volume are contributed by Belgian, French, and American scholars to honor the memory and work of Adrienne Fontainas (1929-2010). The interdisciplinary scholarship this community of international scholars has produced is of lasting importance in underlining the significant role of Brussels from 1870 to 1914. A leading European scholar and bibliophile, Adrienne Fontainas served as Vice President of the International Association of Bibliophiles and membre d’honneur of the Royal Society of Bibliophiles and Iconophiles of Belgium. Her groundbreaking books on the Symbolist poet Stéphane Mallarmé and his Brussels’ editor Edmond Deman ( Edmond Deman éditeur : Art et édition au tournant du siècle and Edmond Deman : Publications de la librairie) are model studies of the book publishing trade in France and Belgium.
The essays in this book explore a wide variety of interdisciplinary fields, including art history, book collecting, publishing, literature and music, and cover subjects such as Félicien Rops, William Degouve de Nuncques, Symbolism and Surrealism, Maurice Maeterlinck and Émile Verhaeren, Paul Signac, Victor Horta, Edmond Picard, André Fontainas, Edmond Deman, and Franz Liszt in Belgium. In addition, a comprehensive bibliography of Adrienne Fontainas’ writings in the visual arts, literature, and music, as well as a discussion of her working methodology, are included.
This book contains contributions in French and English.
