By thoroughly mining the extensive resources of the newspaper and art journal press, gallery and government archives, artists' writings and interviews with surviving artists and art critics, Natalie Adamson traces the artists, exhibitions, and art critical debates that made the École de Paris a zone of aesthetic and political conflict. This study presents a wholly new perspective on the vexed relationships between painting, politics, and national identity in postwar France.
