Abstract:

This study documents the career of one of the most widely known French artists of the nineteenth century. The embodiment of mainstream taste, Jean-Louis-Ernest Meissonier was scorned by the avant-garde, but his jewellike genre paintings were highly regarded by his middle-class audience. Examining his art in detail, Constance Cain Hungerford follows Meissonier from his formation as a wood engraving designer to his virtuous production of small scale genre scenes, his larger battlefield paintings, and his several images of modern revolution and war. Also analyzed are the state administered exhibition system, which Meissonier worked to his advantage, and developments in the marketing of art, both in Europe and in the United States.
