0.00 CHF tax incl.

The Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture ruled the arts in France for a century and a half. However, the institution remains largely misunderstood and continues to be characterized even today using terms taken from the discourses that have been given in praise or criticism of it during its existence as well as after its suppression. Christian Michel puts together its history and retraces its evolution by the measuring stick of the power relations and aesthetic debates that shook French society between 1648 and 1793. A history of the Academy in fact allows us to appreciate the definition of art that it put into place during the Ancien Régime. This book successively studies the criteria for selection of the Academy’s members; the manner in which the Academy thought about and taught art; the function of the Salons; the Academy’s elaboration of the criteria enabling a manufactured object to be elevated to the status of a work of art; the economic and social effects that belonging to the Academy had for artists; and, finally, the place held by the Academy in the system of arts in France and Europe. The book examines social and political history, but focuses primarily on art history: it aims to show how artistic production was shaped by the Academy.
