Neoclassicism A&i (Art & Ideas)by David Irwin
Synopses & Reviews
Neoclassicism was the favorite style of Napoleon and Thomas Jefferson, and made Josiah Wedgwood's fortune. The most pervasive style in the history of European art, it was deployed in the design of houses, churches, museums, banks, shops and items of daily use ranging from teapots to textiles. This book is the first to embrace all manifestations of the style, not only its broad territorial scope, but also its versatility in every branch of art.
Book News Annotation:
This study of Neoclassicism in the visual arts from 1750 to 1830 embraces all manifestations of the Neoclassical style, taking into consideration both the movement's broad territorial scope and its versatility in every branch of art from the fine to the utilitarian. A discussion of the aftermath of Neoclassicism charts the movement's influence to the 1980s. Includes a series of brief bibliographies, a lengthy list of key dates, and numerous color and black-and-white illustrations. Distributed by Chronicle Books.
