"As the favoured artist of an enterprising Parisian elite, Robert is a prophetic case study of the intersection between aesthetics and modernity's dawning business culture. In this provocative study, Hubert Robert's paintings of urban ruins are interpreted as manifestations of a new consciousness of time, one shaped by the uncertainty of an economy characterized by the anxiety-inducing expansion of credit, frenzied speculation on the stock market, and foolhardy ventures in real estate. At the centre of this lively narrative lie Robert's depictions of the ruins of Paris - macabre and spectacular paintings of desolation - on the eve of the French Revolution. Drawing on a vast range of materials, Futures & Ruins interprets Robert's artworks as harbingers of a modern appetite for self-destruction: the paintings are examined as expressions of the pleasures and perils of a risk economy."--Publisher's description
Hubert Robert by Hubert Robert( Book )

"Celebrated for the fundamental role he played in promoting the architectural capriccio, Hubert Robert (1733-1808) combined famous monuments of antiquity and modernity in unexpected ways to create strikingly new and imaginative city scenes and landscapes. Dubbed "Robert des ruines" by the great critic and encyclopedist Denis Diderot, Robert was regarded during his era as one of France's most prominent artists. His reputation has endured, but this monographic exhibition, coorganized by the National Gallery of Art and the Musée du Louvre, is the first to encompass his entire career and to survey his achievements as both a painter and a draftsman. Presenting a discerning selection of his works, five scholarly essays, and a biographical chronology, this volume richly illuminates Robert's outstanding accomplishments as an artist and his lasting contributions to French visual culture"--
