The spirit of despotism : invasions of privacy in the 1790s by John Barrell( )

15 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 1,596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing on an unusually wide range of sources, including novels, poems, plays, newspapers, debates in parliament, trials, political pamphlets, and caricatures, The Spirit of Despotism focuses on a number of examples of such invasions of privacy. It shows how the culture of suspicion affected how people spoke and behaved in London coffee-houses; how it influenced attitudes to the king's behaviour in private, especially during his summer holidays in Weymouth; how it infiltrated the country cottage, previously idealized as a protected haven of peace and retirement from political life; and how it influenced the fashion of the period, so that even the way people chose to style their hair came to be seen as a political issue."--Jacket

Painting and the politics of culture : new essays on British art, 1700-1850( Book )

11 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent years the study of British art, especially of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, has been transformed. This has been the result of a general awareness of the theoretical issues involved in the study of culture and society, and the new emphasis given to questions of class, race, and gender, which has produced a new, inter-disciplinary approach to the study of British art. The essays in this book, all previously unpublished, are written by distinguished scholars from various disciplines, several of whom have been at the forefront of this transformation. There are essays on Gainsborough, Joseph Wright of Derby, Turner, and Benjamin Robert Haydon; on the teaching of art to women, on eighteenth-century social theories of painting, and on the representation of industrial landscape, of femininity, and of 'exotic' and oriental cultures. The result is a book which is of equal interest to scholars and students of the history of art, literature, social history, cultural studies and women's studies

Imagining the king's death : figurative treason, fantasies of regicide, 1793-1796 by John Barrell( Book )

7 editions published between 2000 and 2006 in English and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It is high treason in British law to 'imagine' the king's death. But after the execution of Louis XVI in 1793, everyone in Britain must have found themselves imagining that the same fate might befall George III. How easy was it to distinguish between fantasizing about the death of George and 'imagining' it, in the legal sense of 'intending' or 'designing'? John Barrell examines this question in the context of the political trials of the mid-1790s and the controversies they generated. He shows how the law of treason was adapted in the years following Louis's death to punish what was acknowledged to be a 'modern' form of treason unheard of when the law had been framed. The result, he argues, was the invention of a new, an imaginary, a 'figurative' treason, by which the question of who was imagining the king's death, the supposed traitors or those who charged them with treason, became inescapable."--BOOK JACKET
Living with the Royal Academy : artistic ideals and experiences in England, 1768-1848 by Sarah Monks( Book )

17 editions published between 2013 and 2017 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Living with the Royal Academy: Artistic Ideals and Experiences in England, 1768-1848 offers a range of case studies which consider individual artists' personal, professional and artistic relationships with the Royal Academy during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, bringing together the research of leading historians of British artistic culture during this period. Over its introduction and nine essays, this collection considers the Academy as a lived organism whose most effective role, following its establishment in 1768, was as a reference point towards, around and against which artists operated in their relationships with each other and with artistic practice itself. In so doing, this collection also considers the relationship between Academic ideals and individual practice (as well as lived experience) during this period of art's increasingly public manifestation at the Academy. Individual artists examined include Joshua Reynolds, Joseph Wright of Derby, Benjamin West and William Etty. Thinking beyond the dichotomy of loyalism and rebellion - and complicating notions of the Academy as a monolithic ossifying institution from which progressive artists would be 'liberated' in the wake of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood's emergence in 1848 - this volume investigates the Academy's varied impact upon the lives, experiences and ideals of its diverse artistic communities.--
