Patriotic Taste: Collecting Modern Art in Pre-Revolutionary Paris
Colin B. Bailey (au)
During the final decades of the ancien regime, prominent collectors in Paris commissioned and collected French paintings of the period, works by Greuze, Fragonard, David and others that together comprised ‘l’Ecole Francoise’ -- the French School. Here, an eminent art historian discusses six of these collectors and the collections they assembled, showing that private patronage in this period was revitalized by this patriotic desire to collect contemporary art. Bailey explains why a taste for modern art emerged at this time and how it was encouraged and fostered. He discusses the degree of influence these enlightened patrons and collectors expected to exercise when new works were being commissioned. Over 200 color & b&w illustrations.
