This richly illustrated panorama of seventeenth-century French painting surveys the works of Poussin, Vouet, Le Sueur, de La Tour, Mignard, and other great and little-known artists. It places this art in relation to literary, political, philosophical, and social developments of the period; considers the foundation of the Royal Academy of Painting in 1648; discusses the influence of Mazarin on artistic developments; explores issues of status, patronage, and connoisseurship; and reexamines the notion of a "French School" of painting, first proposed by the theorist Roger de Piles in 1699.

From the Back Cover:

Recent studies and exhibitions, combined with the discovery of work by hitherto little-known artists have enabled Merot to take a fresh look at the period and to suggest a new configuration. The great names of the period - Poussin, Vouet, Le Sueur, de La Tour, Mignard - are located in relation to other developments. Merot includes discussion of the impact of contemporary literature and political, philosophical and social influences. The foundation of the Royal Academy of Painting in 1648, and the influence of Mazarin on artistic developments are considered with other issues of status, patronage and connoisseurship. The book provides a panorama of the period; the text is profusely illustrated in colour, and accompanied by a comprehensive bibliography.

About the Author:

Alain Mérot is professor of the history of modern art at the University of Lille III.
