Outlines & Highlights for 19th - Century Art by Rosenblum & Janson,

Outlines & Highlights for 19th - Century Art by Rosenblum & Janson,  Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A book that broke new ground when it was first published, 19th-Century Art today reads with the same authority and scholarly verve as it has for the past twenty years.

This revised and updated edition remains true to the original, with its magisterial survey of painting and sculpture presented in four historical parts, beginning in 1776 and ending with the dawn of the new century at the Paris Exposition Universelle (World's Fair) of 1900. The text draws on the historical documentation of the period, tracing the dynamics of the making and viewing of art, and examining the reciprocal influences of art and technology, art and politics, art and literature, art and music.

19th-Century Art has been influential in cementing the reputations of many painters and sculptors, and this new edition adds more artists to the pantheon. It also explores for the first time the work of photographers, who themselves provoked new ways of looking at nineteenth-century painting. Historical perspective is enhanced in this edition with a selection of sparkling critical and artistic responses to many of the key works of art since their creation, such as: Gericault on the public response to his famous Raft of the Medusa, John Ruskin on Turner, and poet Baudelaire on the sculpture of the day.

To match the opulence of the subject, the new edition features 540 illustrations, 370 of which are in full color.

Book News Annotation:

Revolution marked the 19th century in terms of politics, intellectual thought, and most surely in the area of art. In this volume, Janson and Rosenblum combine their scholarship talents to supply readers with yet another definitive art history, surveying painting and sculpture between 1776 and 1900 and demonstrating the influences of technology, politics, literature, and music on the art world. All the major names are represented (David, Goya, Manet, Renoir, Van Gogh, Rodin, etc.) as well as lesser masters from Victorian eccentrics and French academics to the Belgian Social Realists. Includes 500 illustrations, 89 of which are in color.
