Social History of Modern Art by Albert Boime
Book DescriptionIn this second volume, Albert Boime continues his projected five-volume 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. Stimulating and informative, this volume will become a valuable resource for faculty and undergraduates. --R. W. Liscombe, "Choice" Albert Boime is professor of art history at the University of California, Los Angeles.

Books By Author Albert Boime
Art in an Age of Civil Struggle, 1848-1871, Hardback (May 2008)
Tracing the various movements of realism through the major metropolitan centers of Europe and America, this book evokes the milieus that shaped the lives and works of Gustave Courbet, Edouard Manet, Emile Zola, Honore Daumier, Walt Whitman, Abraham Lincoln, and the earliest photographers, among others.
Art in an Age of Counterrevolution 1815-1848, Hardback (September 2004)
Art for art's sake. Art created in pursuit of personal expression. In Art in an Age of Counterrevolution, Albert Boime rejects these popular modern notions and suggests that history - not internal drive or expressive urge - is the dynamic force that shapes art.
Visualizing Labor in American Sculpture, Hardback (March 1999)
A study of American sculpture with themes of labour and manliness.
Art and the French Commune, Paperback (January 1997)» View all books by Albert Boime
Exploring the political forces that shaped Impressionism, this work proposes that at the heart of the modern is a "guilty secret" - the need of the dominant, mainly bourgeois, classes in Paris to expunge from historical memory the haunting nightmare of the Commune and its socialist ideology.
