Velvet Curtains and Gilded Frames: The Art of Early European Cinema
Edinburgh University Press, Mar 31, 2019 - 216 pages
This volume analyses the visual and cultural context of Europe's first feature films from 19th century painting to pictorial photography. It tackles the European feature film's intricate relationship with its sister arts - theatre, painting and photograpy - prior to the Great War, and presents an alternative history of early European cinema by analysing it from an inclusive art historical perspective.
