Interior decorating in nineteenth-century France : the visual culture of a new profession by Anca I Lasc( )

7 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 969 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book locates the beginnings of the interior design profession in nineteenth-century France, when an intense interest in the decoration of the domestic interior took hold at all levels of society. Drawing on an abundance of contemporary materials, including collecting and advice manuals, pattern books, illustrated magazines, and department store catalogs, it demonstrates how a growing visual culture, encouraged by new techniques of image-making, enabled the as-yet-unnamed profession of interior designer to take shape. The book recognizes the dependence of the trades on the artistic and public visual appeal of their work, establishing crucial links between the fields of art history, material and visual culture, and design history." -- Back cover
Designing the French interior : the modern home and mass media by Anca I Lasc( )

15 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 407 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Designing the French Interior traces France's central role in the development of the modern domestic interior, from the pre-revolutionary period to the 1970s, and addresses the importance of various media in representing and promoting French interior design to a wider audience. Contributors to this original volume identify and historicize the singularity of the modern French domestic interior as a generator of reproducible images, a site for display of both highly crafted and mass-produced objects, and the direct result of widely-circulated imagery in its own right. To this end, a variety of media and representational techniques are discussed side by side, including drawings, prints, pattern books, illustrated magazines, department store catalogs, photographs, guidebooks, and films. Structured into three parts and including chapters by leading scholars addressing a wide range of subjects, this book is intended to broaden understanding of French interiors, from historical, theoretical and practice-based perspectives, and provides an invaluable new understanding of the relationship between architecture, interior spaces, material cultures, mass media and modernity"--

Visualizing the nineteenth-century home : modern art and the decorative impulse by Anca I Lasc( Book )

8 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The nineteenth century - the Era of the Interior - witnessed the steady displacement of art from the ceilings, walls, and floors of aristocratic and religious interiors to the everyday spaces of bourgeois households, subject to their own enhanced ornamentation. Following the 1863 Salon des refuses, the French State began to channel mediocre painters into the decorative arts. England, too, launched an extensive reform of the decorative arts, resulting in more and more artists engaged in the production and design of complete interiors. America soon followed. Present art historical scholarship - still indebted to a modernist discourse that sees cultural progress to be synonymous with the removal of ornament from both utilitarian objects and architectural spaces - has not yet acknowledged the importance of the decorative arts in the myriad interior spaces of the 1800s. Nor has mainstream art history reckoned with the importance of the interior in nineteenth-century life and thought. Aimed at an interdisciplinary audience, including art and design historians, historians of the modern interior, interior designers, visual culture theorists, and scholars of nineteenth-century material culture, this collection of essays studies the modern interior in new ways. The volume addresses the double nature of the modern interior as both space and image, blurring the boundaries between arts and crafts, decoration and high art, two-dimensional and three-dimensional design, trompe-l'oeil effects and spatial practices. In so doing, it redefines the modern interior and its objects as essential components of modern art. --
