Opis produktu

The eighteenth century is recognized as a complex period of dramatic epistemic shifts that would have profound effects on the modern world. Paradoxically the art of the era continues to be a relatively neglected field within art history. While womens private lives their involvement with cultural production the project of Enlightenment and the public sphere have been the subjects of groundbreaking historical and literary studies in recent decades womens engagement with the arts remains one of the richest and most underexplored areas for scholarly investigation. This collection of new essays by specialist authors addresses womens activities as patrons and as patronized artists over the course of the century. It provides a much needed examination with admirable breadth and variety of womens artistic production and patronage during the eighteenth century. By opening up the specific problems and conflicts inherent in womens artistic involvements from the perspective of what was at stake for the eighteenthcentury women themselves it also acts as a corrective to the generalizing and stereotyping about the prominence of those women which is too often present in current day literature. Some essays are concerned with how womens involvement in the arts allowed them to fashion identities for themselves (whether national political religious intellectual artistic or genderbased) and how such selffashioning in turn enabled them to negotiate or intervene in the public domains of culture and politics where The Woman Question was so hotly debated. Other essays examine how mens patronage of women also served as a vehicle for selffashioning for both artist and sponsor. Artists and patrons discussed include: Carriera: Queen Lovisa Ulrike and Chardin: the Bourbon Princesses Mlle Clermont Mme Adęla > de and Nattier: the Duchess of Osuna and Goya: MarieAntoinette and VigęeLebrun: LabilleGuiard: Queen Carolina of Naples Prince Stanislaus Poniatowski of Poland and Kauffman: David and his students Mesdames Benoist Lavoisier and Mongez.Contents: Introduction: art cultural politics and the woman question Melissa Hyde and Jennifer Milam: An ornament of Italy and the premier female painter of Europe: Rosalba Carriera and the Roman academy Christopher M.S.
