Pierre Puvis de Chavannes (1824-1898) was a towering figure in late 19th-cent. France. The countryís greatest public painter, he created murals that decorated museums in Amiens, Rouen, and Lyons as well as major buildings in Paris -- the Pantheon, the Sorbonne, and the city hall. This handsomely illustrated book is an examination of Puvisís murals and their critical reception during the artistís lifetime. His murals provoked viewers to experience their own fantasies of Frenchness. This analysis of Puvisís art underlines his importance to the history of modernism. The examination of the public response to his art illuminates debates about art, subjectivity, and national identity in fin-de-siecle France. Color illustrations.
