Review
"Carefully and clearly argued, Plax's book sets a model for actively integrating visual, historical and theoretical concerns." CAA Reviews

"Plax does well to call our attention in a new way to this capacity for transformation of self and culture represented by Watteau's figures." Eighteenth-Century Studies

Book Description
In Watteau and the Cultural Politics of Eighteenth-Century France, Julie Anne Plax engages in an interdisciplinary examination of several categories of Watteau's paintings--theatrical, military, fetes, and the art dealer. Arguing that Watteau consistently applied coherent strategies of representation aimed at subverting high art, she shows how his paintings toyed ironically with conventions and genres and confounded traditional categories. Plax connects these...

Book Description
The fourth book of the "Drawing Gallery" series is devoted to Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres (1780-1867). Considered one of the greatest French draughtsmen of all time, the artist left thousands of preparatory drawings for his paintings, including Oedipus and the Sphinx and The Turkish Bath, along with an incomparable series of almost five hundred graphite portraits that have always been deemed the highest expression of his genius. The Louvre collection offers excellent examples of these two aspects of Ingres’ graphic activity. The ensemble conserved in the Graphic Arts department of the Louvre, formed by gifts, especially from the artist’s friends, but also by an active acquisition policy, boasts several of his most famous drawings, portraits (The Forestier Family, The Stamaty Family, Paganini) and finished...


British Museum A-Z Companion

From Library Journal
This guidebook to the collections of the British Museum is arranged in a unique and interesting manner: alphabetically rather than by collection or museum department. Caygill (Treasures of the British Museum) hopes that this arrangement will allow museum visitors to view the collections in new ways. Although the book is not exhaustive, it does provide a useful introduction to the variety of objects in the museum, as well as areas and subjects that one might never have discovered otherwise. In addition, those seeking objects on a particular subject or artifacts of a given civilization will benefit. Every entry is accompanied by a clear and detailed photograph of one object and by a page of well-researched and scholarly information. The volume ends with plans/layouts of the museum's galleries, appendixes...
