Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hwo did the rise of metropolitan art institutions influence modernism and the modernisation of art in England? This volume explores the artist as creator, notions of class and taste, and the power of institutions to affect creativity and artistic expression. Topics discussed include the radicalism of engravers and how their claim to be artists is an important and negkected aspect of the nineteenth-century art world; and how the aesthetic dispute over the Chantrey Bequest epitomized conflicts of taste, cultural independence, and interdependence between opposed art institutions and the Treasury.

Book News Annotation:

Gives a sociological interpretation of the rise of metropolitan art institutions and their role in modernism and the modernization of art in England. Explores the complex relationships between the artist as creator, notions of class and taste, and the power of institutions such as academies, museums, and art dealers to enable or constrain creativity and to reflect and shape artistic expression. Looks at the experiences of submerged artists, including reproductive engravers and the Chantrey artists, and their interpretations of the changing 19th- century English art world. Includes b&w photos and illustrations. Fyfe teaches sociology at Keele University.
