A History of Painting: The French Genius Part Six
1911. In Eight Volumes. Illustrated with 200 plates. With Preface by Frank Brangwyn. The volumes in this series comprise a general survey of the history of painting by looking at the dominant figures of the time and studying how art developed towards the end of the nineteenth century. Macfall writes in the foreword: In these pages I have simply written of the greater men of genius who have contributed to the art of painting; and I have touched upon their more famous works rather than attempted an exhaustive list of all their endeavor, the which has no value except to the dealer in antiques. The volumes are an attempt to place before the ordinary man the chief achievement of the years in the Art of Painting; and to hint at something of the real significance of that achievement. The Contents of this volume are divided into the following groups: The Rise of French Painting: 1500 and 1600; The Grand Manner; Prince Charming Reigns Over France; and The Winter of French Art.
