Patriotic Taste by Colin B. Bailey
Book DescriptionColin 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 18th-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.
