xv, 495 pp., illus., biblio., indexes; 24 cm. Studies on the history of society and culture, 24. Tight, clean text. Previous owner's signature/half-title page, otherwise unmarked. "Louis XIV, regency, rococo, neoclassical, empire, art nouveau, and historicist pastiche: furniture styles march across French history as regimes rise and fall. In this extraordinary social history, Leora Auslander explores the changing meaning of furniture from the mid-seventeenth to the early twentieth century, revealing how the aesthetics of everyday life were as integral to political events as to economic and social transformations. Enriched by Auslander's experience as a cabinetmaker, this work demonstrates how furniture served to represent and even generate its makers' and consumers' identities. / Leora Auslander is Associate Professor of History and Director of the Center for Gender Studies at the University of Chicago." - Publisher.

Patriotic Taste: Collecting Modern Art in Pre-Revolutionary Paris, Bailey, Colin B.
9 Bailey, Colin B.
Patriotic Taste: Collecting Modern Art in Pre-Revolutionary Paris
New York Yale University Press 2002 0300089864 / 9780300089868 1st Hardcover Fine Fine Collectible 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall 
Cloth, gilt, 346 pp., illus. (some col.), biblio., index; 27 cm. Firm binding, clean inside copy. Dust jacket protected in a mylar book cover. OVERSIZE! No priority/air, except by special arrangement. Winner of the 2004 Mitchell Prize for the History of Art to the best art book category, awarded by the Mitchell Foundation for the History of Art. "During the final decades of the ancien régime, prominent collectors in Paris commissioned and collected French paintings of the period, works by Greuze, Fragonard, David, and others that together comprised 'l'école Française'--the French School. In this book, an eminent art historian discusses six of these collectors and the collections they assembled, showing that private patronage in this period was revitalized by this patriotic desire to collect contemporary art. Colin B. Bailey explains why a taste for modern art emerged at this time and how it was encouraged and fostered. Examining the relationship between artist and patron, he discusses the degree of influence these enlightened patrons and collectors expected to exercise when new works were being commissioned. Bailey shows that collectors of eighteenth-century French painting seem not to have made rigid distinctions between the various genres or styles of the Academy's practitioners. Instead, history paintings and genre paintings--both rococo and neo-classical--were exhibited proudly on their walls as superb examples of the French School. / Colin B. Bailey, chief curator at The Frick Collection, New York, is also the author of Renoir’s Portraits: Impressions of an Age, published by Yale University Press." - Publisher.

The Woman of Ideas in French Art, 1830-1848, Bergman-Carton, Janis
12 Bergman-Carton, Janis
The Woman of Ideas in French Art, 1830-1848
New Haven, CT Yale University Press 1995 0300053800 / 9780300053807 1st Hardcover Fine Fine Collectible 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 
Cloth, gilt, xvi, 261 pp., illus., biblio., index; 24 cm. Tight, clean copy. Dust jacket protected in a mylar book cover. "Most discussions of the representation of women in nineteenth-century French art have been limited to depictions of courtesans or women who were victimized into prostitution by the harsh conditions of urban working-class life. Janis Bergman-Carton argues that this limitation has obscured an equally historical female model - the 'woman of ideas' - who figured prominently in this period in the narratives of French national and sexual politics. According to Bergman-Carton, the period between 1830 and 1848 marked the first era of revitalized female literary and political activity after the Revolution, activity that was viewed as an invasion into traditionally masculine realms of culture. Within the newly developing arenas of the popular press and utopian socialist reform politics, the careers of women of ideas (such as George Sand and Flora Tristan) flourished. Efforts to neutralize the critical and financial successes of these women appeared frequently in the caricatures of Daumier and De Beaumont and, more discreetly, in the paintings of such artists as Ingres, Delacroix, and Corot. Bergman-Carton examines how this art represented 'deviant' womanhood and contributed to the cultural mechanisms that undermined the power and visibility women of ideas had achieved before the Revolution of 1848. / Janis Bergman-Carton is assistant professor of art history at Southern Methodist University." - Publisher.

Dust jacket protected in a mylar book cover. A near-fine copy of the first printing. OVERSIZE! No priority/international, except by special arrangement. Authoritative. Profusely illustrated. "In this second volume, Albert Boime continues his work on the social history of Western art in the Modern epoch. This volume offers a major critique and revisionist interpretation of Western European culture, history, and society from Napoleon's seizure of power to 1815. Boime argues that Napoleon manipulated the production of images, as well as information generally, in order to maintain his political hegemony. He examines the works of French painters such as Jacques-Louis David and Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres, to illustrate how the art of the time helped to further the emperor's propagandistic goals. He also explores the work of contemporaneous English genre painters, Spain's Francisco de Goya, the German Romantics Philipp Otto Runge and Caspar David Friedrich, and the emergence of a national Italian art. Heavily illustrated, this volume is an invaluable social history of modern art during the Napoleonic era. / Albert Boime is professor of art history at the University of California, Los Angeles." - Publisher. CONTENTS: The Napoleonic era (1800-15); The iconography of Napoleon; English art in the Napoleonic era; France and Spain; Napoleon's invasion of Prussia and the rise of German romantic nationalism; The political foundations of the German romantic pioneers and their patrons; Patrons of the new movement; Philipp Otto Runge; Caspar David Friedrich; Napoleon in Italy.
