Description


This two-volume bibliography provides a source for reviews of the state-sponsored Parisian salons of painting and sculpture from 1699 to 1851. It includes an extensive list of references, each presented in a standard format with titles, dates and ordering codes based on the holdings of the Bibliot que Nationale in Paris. It is indexed both by authors and by periodicals. The essays and articles that are catalogues are of fundamental importance in establishing a picture of contemporary reactions to art in eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century France, and yet the standard work by Maurice Tournaux Salons et exposition d'art Paris 1801-1870 has been out of print for several decades. By incorporating and correcting the relevant material from Tournaux, adding references from the Deloynes collection (together with full details of original sources) and incorporating a broad sample from the periodical press, the authors have achieved a substantial increase in the volume and range of criticism available for analysis by cultural and literary historians.
