Making up the rococo : François Boucher and his critics by Melissa Lee Hyde( Book )

15 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 416 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Women, art and the politics of identity in eighteenth-century Europe by Melissa Lee Hyde( Book )

10 editions published between 2003 and 2016 in English and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of new essays by specialist authors addresses women's 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 women's artistic production and patronage during the eighteenth century. By opening up the specific problems and conflicts inherent in women's artistic involvements from the perspective of what was at stake for the eighteenth-century 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."--Jacket
Rethinking Boucher by Getty Research Institute( Book )

16 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Unequivocally a modern, Francois Boucher (1703-70) defined the French artistic avant-garde throughout his career. Yet the triumph of modernist aesthetics - with its focus on the self-critical, the autonomous, and the intellectually challenging - has long discouraged art historians and other viewers from taking Boucher's playful and alluring works seriously. Rethinking Boucher revisits the cultural meanings and reception of his diverse oeuvre, inviting us to revise the interpretive cliches by which we have sought to tame this artist and his epoch."--Jacket
Royalists to romantics : women artists from the Louvre, Versailles and other French national collections( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The rich collections of paintings and sculptures by women in the Louvre, Versailles, Fontainebleau, and other venerable French collections present an outstanding opportunity to explore the important contributions that women artists made in France between 1750 and 1848, a period that saw the waning of the ancien regime, the traumas of the French Revolution, the rise and fall of Napoleon, and the restoration of the monarchy. 'Royalists to Romantics' features some seventy-five paintings, sculptures, prints, and drawings by thirty-five French women artists of this era. These stunning works both illuminate their makers' careers and offer a new narrative about the art world of the Revolutionary period. Published to accompany a major exhibition at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, DC, this beautifully illustrated book examines eighteenth-century French theories of sexual difference and their influence on the 'woman-artist question'; paradoxical Revolutionary attitudes toward women artists, who encountered as many new limitations as opportunities; and the complex ways that women marketed their reputations and managed their cultural positions in France's intricate social and artistic hierarchy. Accompanies a major exhibition at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, DC from February 24- May 31, 2012
Rococo echo : art, history and historiography from Cochin to Coppola by Melissa Lee Hyde( Book )

9 editions published in 2014 in English and French and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Rococo echo, a team of international contributors adopts a wide lens to explore the relationship of the Rococo with time. Through chapters organised around broad temporal moments--the French Revolution, the First World War and the turn of the twenty-first century--contributors show that the Rococo has been viewed variously as modern, late, ruined, revived, preserved and anticipated. Taking into account the temporality of the Rococo as form, some contributors consider its function as both a visual language and a cultural marker engaged in different ways with the politics of nationalism, gender and race. The Rococo is examined, too, as a mode of expression that encompassed and assimilated styles, and which functioned as a surprisingly effective means of resisting both authority--whether political, religious or artistic--and cultural norms of gender and class. Contributors also show how the Rococo, from its birth in France, reverberated through England, Germany, Italy, Portugal and the South American colonies to become a pan-European, even global movement."--Page 4 of cover
Plumes et pinceaux : discours de femmes sur l'art en Europe, 1750-1850 by Anne Lafont( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in French and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Si l'histoire de l'art s'est depuis longtemps intéressée à ceux qui la pensent et l'écrivent, donnant matière à maints études et ouvrages de fond (dictionnaires, essais, anthologie ...), ce n'est que relativement récemment, depuis la toute fin des années 1980, qu'elle prend en compte les femmes à l'oeuvre dans la pratique et l'écriture de l'histoire des arts visuels. Issu d'un colloque consacré aux historiennes de l'art à l'époque de Juliette Récamier, cet ouvrage explore et donne à voir les carrières, les postures et les points de vue de femmes sur l'art durant une petite centaine d'années de 1760 à 1840, période d'intenses bouleversements dans toute Europe faisant se confronter des regards français, anglais et allemands de praticiennes comme Élisabeth Vigée-Lebrun, de salonnières et romancières comme Marie d'Agoult ou Germaine de Staël, ou encore de restauratrice de tableaux, de journalistes ou de critiques d'art. Ces essais mettent en évidence la variété des écrits et des stratégies mises en place par les femmes pour s'octroyer une place elle-même variable selon les cas dans un univers essentiellement masculin."--Page [4] de la couv
The agreeable game of art : François Boucher and the worldly play of gender by Melissa Lee Hyde( )

5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the body of writing about eighteenth-century French art, there is an abiding conception of the rococo as feminine. This study responds critically to that idea, first, by examining the discursive processes by which the rococo was defined, after the fact, in terms of a binary notion of gender and then, by reading against the grain of this textual formation in a re-examination of rococo visual culture, largely as it was exemplified by the work of Francois Boucher (1703-1770)
