Art in an age of civil struggle, 1848-1871 by Albert Boime( )

17 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 1,953 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the European revolutions of 1848 through the Italian independence movement, the American Civil War, and the French Commune, the era Albert Boime explores in this fourth volume of his epic series was, in a word, transformative. The period, which gave rise to such luminaries as Karl Marx and Charles Darwin, was also characterized by civic upheaval, quantum leaps in science and technology, and the increasing secularization of intellectual pursuits and ordinary life. In a sweeping narrative that adds critical depth to a key epoch in modern art?s history, Art in an Age of Civil Struggle shows
Revelation of modernism : responses to cultural crises in fin-de-siècle painting by Albert Boime( )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,569 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Examines the work of postimpressionist painters - Van Gogh, Seurat, Cézanne, and Gauguin - and how they responded to cultural and spiritual crisis in the avant-garde world. Boime reconsiders familiar masterpieces and draws analogies with literary sources and social, personal, and political strategies to produce revelations that have eluded most art historians"--Provided by publisher
The art of exclusion : representing Blacks in the nineteenth century by Albert Boime( Book )

17 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 1,081 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Boime presents a major critique and revisionist interpretation of the portrayal of black people in the nineteenth century ... examines the fundamental historical, social, and cultural assumptions of those times. Reading the images as texts, Boime ... demonstrates how the art reveals ... deep-seated attitudes of that time toward blacks ... Though the art revealed the controlling social hierarchy ... it also presented the perspective of blacks themselves, 'insiders' experiencing the oppressiveness of the images that stereotyped and confined them ... Boime shows that art, by shaping and reinforcing social standards, contributed directly to the debasement and subjugation of African peoples and their descendants of the diaspora"--Dustjacket

Art in an age of revolution, 1750-1800 by Albert Boime( Book )

27 editions published between 1987 and 2006 in English and held by 957 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

« In A Social History of Modern Art, a sweeping multivolume social history of Western art from the French Revolution to World War I, Albert Boime moves beyond the concern with style and form that has traditionally characterized the study of art history and, in the tradition of Arnold Hauser, examines art in a broad historical context. Into his wide-ranging cultural inquiry Boime incorporates not only frequently studied mainstream artists and sculptors but also neglected and lesser known artists and unattributed popular imagery. He examines popular as well as official culture, the family as well as the state, and the conditions of the poor as well as of the affluent that affected cultural practice. This inaugural volume explores the artistic repercussions of the major political and economic events of the latter half of the eighteenth century: the Seven Years' War, the French Revolution, and the English industrial revolution. Boime examines the prerevolutionary popularity of the rococo style and the emergence of the cult of antiquity that followed the Seven Years' War. He shows how the continual experiments of Jacques-Louis David and others with neoclassical symbols and themes in the latter part of the century actively contributed to the transformation of French and English politics. Boime's analyses reveal the complex relationship of art with a wide range of contemporary attitudes and conditions—technological innovation, social and political tensions, commercial expansion, and the growth of capitalism. »--
Art in an age of Bonapartism, 1800-1815 by Albert Boime( Book )

21 editions published between 1990 and 1999 in English and held by 781 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this second volume, Albert Boime continues his work on the social history of Western art in the Modern epoch. This volume offers a major critique and revisionist interpretation of Western European culture, history, and society from Napoleon's seizure of power to 1815. Boime argues that Napoleon manipulated the production of images, as well as information generally, in order to maintain his political hegemony. He examines the works of French painters such as Jacques-Louis David and Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres, to illustrate how the art of the time helped to further the emperor's propagandistic goals. He also explores the work of contemporaneous English genre painters, Spain's Francisco de Goya, the German Romantics Philipp Otto Runge and Caspar David Friedrich, and the emergence of a national Italian art

Art and the French commune : imagining Paris after war and revolution by Albert Boime( Book )

18 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 677 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this bold exploration of the political forces that shaped Impressionism, Albert Boime proposes that at the heart of the modern is a "guilty secret"--The need of the dominant, mainly bourgeois, classes in Paris to expunge from historical memory the haunting nightmare of the Commune and its socialist ideology. The Commune of 1871 emerged after the Prussian war when the Paris militia chased the central government to Versailles, enabling the working class and its allies to seize control of the capital. Eventually violence engulfed the city as traditional liberals and moderates joined forces with reactionaries to restore Paris to "order"--the bourgeois order. Here Boime examines the rise of Impressionism in relation to the efforts of the reinstated conservative government to "rebuild" Paris, to return it to its Haussmannian appearance and erase all reminders of socialist threat
Thomas Couture and the eclectic vision by Albert Boime( Book )

10 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 602 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Art in an age of counterrevolution, 1815-1848 by Albert Boime( Book )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Art for art's sake. Art created in pursuit of personal expression. In Art in an Age of Counterrevolution, Albert Boime rejects these popular modern notions and suggests that history - not internal drive or expressive urge - as the dynamic force that shapes art." "This volume focuses on the astonishing range of art forms currently understood to fall within the broad category of Romanticism. Drawing on visual media and popular imagery of the time, this illustrated work examines the art of Romanticism as a reaction to the social and political events surrounding it. Boime reinterprets canonical works by such politicized artists as Goya, Delacroix, Gericault, Friedrich, and Turner, framing their work not by personality but by its sociohistorical context. Boime's approach and scope allows him to incorporate a wide range of perspectives into his analysis of Romantic art, including Marxism, social history, gender identity, ecology, structuralism, and psychoanalytic theory, a reach that parallels the work of contemporary cultural historians and theorists such as Edward Said, Pierre Bourdieu, Eric Hobsbawm, Frederic Jameson, and T.J. Clark." "Boime ultimately establishes that art serves the interests and aspirations of the cultural bourgeoisie. In grounding his arguments on their work and its scope and influence, he elucidates how all artists are inextricably linked to history. This book will be used widely in art history courses and exert influence on cultural studies as well."--Jacket
The art of the Macchia and the Risorgimento : representing culture and nationalism in nineteenth-century Italy by Albert Boime( Book )

9 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 480 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Boime's study departs from previous research on the Macchiaioli by systematically investigating the group's writings, sources, and patronage in relation to the Risorgimento. The book also examines both contemporary and later critical responses, revealing how French art criticism has obscured the achievements of Macchiaioli art. Richly illustrated, The Art of the Macchia and the Risorgimento will appeal to anyone interested in nineteenth-century European art or the history of Italy
The unveiling of the national icons : a plea for patriotic iconoclasm in a nationalist era by Albert Boime( Book )

13 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 462 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Unveiling of the National Icons, Albert Boime analyzes the creation and reception of several American national monuments as a means of understanding the politics of memory and national icons. In engaging, "behind-the-scenes" accounts of several highly visible symbols, such as the American flag, the Statue of Liberty, and Mount Rushmore, among others, he demonstrates how these icons have been manipulated for patriotic purposes. Boime also shows how these monuments express individual and collective needs and how they are subject to contested readings, despite their origins in the creative imaginations of conservatives and privileged members of America. Examining these symbols as a group for the first time, this book is also the first serious investigation of visual artifacts that are too often taken for granted
