Jacques-Louis David: New Perspectives

Portada
University of Delaware Press, 2006 - 178 páginas
"Well-known specialists in art history, gender studies, French literature, and aesthetics address a wide range of issues and problems pertaining to the intersection of art and culture that have profound implications for artistic and historical developments in late-eighteenth and early-nineteenth century France and Europe. The essays present new historical, archival, and interpretative material from diverse methodological vantage points in clear and lucid prose that makes the volume particularly accessible to a broader public interested in learning more about the artist and his time. The text is complemented by seventeen black-and-white plates and fifty-five figures."--Jacket.
