Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres (1780–1867) produced a body of work that strongly appealed to his contemporaries while disconcerting them. Even today, the odd qualities of his work continue to fascinate scholars, critics, and artists. In this handsomely illustrated and elegantly written book, Susan L. Siegfried argues that the strangeness associated with Ingres’s paintings needs to be located in the complex and richly invested nature of the work itself, as well as in the artist’s very powerful—if often perverse—sense of artistic project. She shows that his major re-thinking of pictorial narrative – in his classical literary, historical, and religious subjects – was as central to his achievement as his distinctive rendering of the female figure in classical nudes and portraits. He was engaged in a complex process of giving visual form to narrative, which he did in new and unusual ways that involved him in a close reading of the texts on which he drew, including authors such as Homer, Virgil, Ariosto, and Dante, as well as religious narratives and stories about medieval and early modern French history.

Scholars have long debated the mysterious popularity of the Napoleonic Legend, from the emperor's final defeat in 1815 to the astounding electoral victory of his nephew, Louis-Napoleon Bonaparte, in the presidential elections of 1848. In this book, the author demonstrates how broadsheet illustrations about Napoleon Bonaparte helped shape popular support in regional France for the "new" Bonaparte elected in 1848. Nicholas Pellerin, an avowed republican, and Pierre-Germain Vadet, a veteran of the Imperial wars and staunch bonapartist, promoted representations of Napoleon to criticize and undermine the political status quo. The author reveals how the Pellerin broadsheets about Napoleon sustained anti-Bourbon, anti-Orleanist sentiments during the several decades preceding the revolution of 1848.

From monumental battle paintings to the public display of archaeological spoils to the decoration of urban vistas, visual culture promoted modern French imperialism. So argues Todd Porterfield in this provocative look at the forces of art and politics in France's military conquest of the Near East. In challenging the conventional wisdom that France happened into imperial venture, Porterfield explores interactions among artists, generals, journalists, curators, and politicians from the time of Napoleon's Egyptian campaign to the invasion of Algeria during the Restoration and July Monarchy. Together they forged an official culture that provided a rationale for imperialism--based on images of France's moral and technological superiority--and an enduring project for Frenchmen of all political persuasions during an era of domestic instability. The allure of empire derived in part from its function as an alternative, surrogate, mask, and displacement of the Revolution. Porterfield reveals the interlocking strategies, the historical, scientific, moralistic, and gendered judgments, that imperial art conveyed in a strikingly rich variety of media: the obelisk at the Place de la Concorde, battle paintings of the Egyptian campaign, the first Egyptian Museum in the Louvre, and Delacroix's Women of Algiers. Not only do his analyses engage a wide range of urgent debates within cultural studies, but they also shed light on a troubling question. How in the age oflibert,, egalit,, and fraternit, was visual culture enlisted to fabricate a sense of national superiority that led to the subjugation of others?

Imagined scenes of daily life by Watteau, Chardin, Fragonard, Greuze, and other 18th-century French artists are the subject of this important new study. The wide range of these artists’ works encompasses domestic subjects, portraits and fashion plates, and depictions of stylish entertainments, seductions, and sentimental tales. Examples span the century, from the time of Louis XIV to the French Revolution. Fifteen distinguished scholars present their latest research into the contexts and meanings of French genre painting during this period. The authors offer a variety of critical and historical perspectives, covering such topics as the relationship of genre painting to contemporary life and to sexuality, sentiment, and sensibilité; its patrons and collectors; its popularization through reproduction in the print trade; its contemporary critical reception; and its resonances through subsequent centuries, continuing to our own time.

Overcoming Dictatorships explores art produced in response to the collapse of political authoritarian systems in 1989, particularly those of the Soviet bloc. A case in point is the visual work and discussions of ten artists who have bean selected and commissioned by 'Overcoming Dictatorships', a 2006-09 project generously funded by the European Union (EU). It aims to create a dialogue on post-dictatorial experiences among participants from countries designated as 'East' and 'West' Europe. Their works represent attempts to overcome collective identity formations of the past (i.e. the Soviet bloc, National Socialism and Fascism), critically engage with the fear of new dictatorships (including consumerism, globalization and mass media) and question 'western' political and social-economic uniformities (including the EU). Hence Overcoming Dictatorships challenges compartmentalized thinking and thus attempts to overcome authoritarianism. It is not the intention to add another pillar to a proclaimed European cultural heritage, but rather to contribute to bridging the East and the West, exposing the concepts of East and West Europe as in transition, which, as dominant cultural reference points for the contemporary visual, may also be on the way out, being replaced by an endless variety of issues, themes and positions.
