From the Classicists to the Impressionists: Art and Architecture in the 19th Century

Front Cover
Elizabeth Basye Gilmore Holt
Yale University Press, 1986 - Art - 550 pages
Nineteenth-century artistic expression - characterized by a spirit of revolt against traditional forms and values - is lucidly demonstrated in this unique collection of letters, journals, essays, and other writings of the time. The rise of the critic’s importance in the art world is illuminated by the editor’s careful selection, as is the constant tension between the artists and the patrons of 'academic art.'
