Description

By Katharine Baetjer

Cataloguing The Met's remarkable collection of 18th-century French paintings in the context of the powerful institutions that governed the visual arts of the time—the Académie Royale de Peinture et de Sculpture, the Académie de France à Rome, and the Paris Salon—this book encompasses 126 stunning examples of work by 50 leading artists of the period, including François Boucher, Jean Siméon Chardin, Jacques Louis David, François Gérard, Antoine Watteau, and many more. In addition to a short biography of the artist and an in-depth discussion of the individual paintings, Katharine Baetjer provides a history of the Académie with a discussion of the beginnings of public art discourse in France, the reforms unleashed by the Revolution, and the consequent democratizing of the Salon that encouraged the formation of new publics with new tastes in subject matter and genres.

Katharine Baetjer is Curator Emerita, in the Department of European Paintings at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
