Academies, Museums and Canons of Art

(Inbunden)
Beskrivning:

This lavishly illustrated book examines the variety of ways in which works of art have achieved a position in the so-called canon of Western art. Focusing mainly on art and institutions in Britain and France from the seventeenth to the nineteenth centuries, the book explores the construction and evolution of canonical values. The authors provide a series of detailed case studies-including Poussin's The Arcadian Shepherds, the Parthenon marbles, the Albert Memorial frieze, and others-to enable readers to practice using the vocabularies and analytical skills of art history. The book begins with a consideration of the nature of the modern discipline of art history and the nature of a canonical work. It explores the importance of the classical tradition in the development of the Western canon of art and introduces some of the aesthetic and cultural issues that underpin historical and contemporary valuations of the classical past. In a discussion of the French Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture and the British Royal Academy of Art, the book looks closely at the roles of the two influential academies in establishing taste and canonical status for the world of "approved" artists.The book's final section, an investigation of the ways canonical forms of art were presented, displayed, and consumed in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Britain, shows how various issues helped shape major collections in important galleries and how the galleries in turn influenced the presentation and maintenance of the canon. This is the first of six volumes in the series Art and Its Histories, created to accompany the Open University undergraduate course of the same title.
