Summary The book explores the term of «interartistic phenomenon» that Vassilena Kolarova introduces in the semiotic field of intermedial researches. The writer manifests the existence of the interartistic phenomenon which expresses the relation arising between arts at the time of an aesthetic perception of a work of art. Her concept of interartistic phenomenon differs from intertextuality since it affects arts. The semiotic analysis is concentrated on the works of Michel de Montaigne focusing the research on his famous «Essays» and «The Diary of Montaigne's Travels». The aim of the research is to study the work of Montaigne as a work of art in first place. The varieties of the «interartistic phenomenon» which exist in the work of Montaigne are analyzed in light of the artistic vocabulary he is using to qualify his work. The author of the book takes notice of the interartistic conception in the work of Montaigne revealed by the convergence of nature and art, particularly in the diary of Montaigne's travels. Here the author studies the interartistic phenomenon in the context of the Renaissance and its evolution from ancient philosophy (Horace - Ut pictura poesis, Philostrate - ekphrasis) through Renaissance (Leonardo da Vinci's Paragone) to modern ideas whereas the research is done from a theoretical point of view.
History notes Vassilena Kolarova graduated Arts and Languages from École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales, in Paris, 2010 and holds a Ph.D. in Literature. She introduced the term of interartistic phenomenon in the semiotic field, exploring the relations between arts in work of many artists from different ages: from Jean-Paul Sartre, Kandinsky, Claude Monet and Marcel Proust to Michel Butor and George Badin. Her publications are theoretical and develop the interartistic analysis with interpicturality, intersculpturality, and other terms derived from the concept of the interartistic phenomenon.
