Ingres Then, and Now (Re Visions) Details

Review "This is an unusually fine and intelligent study, which will prove compelling to anyone thinking about the nature of modern art and the situation of the modern artist in 19th and 20th century France. Rifkin offers the reader an array of brilliant and unexpected insights--at times focused on Ingres, at others opening out onto new ways of thinking about modernity and the fabric of modern artistic culture."-Alex Potts, University of Reading Read more About the Author Adrian Rifkin is Professor of Visual Culture and Media at Middlesex University. He is the author of Street Noises: Parisian Pleasure 1900-1940 (1993). Read more

Reviews

Painfully unreadable academic jargon all about the author's pretentions, having little to do with Ingres' actual work and achievement. Stop at the attractive cover.
