Excerpt from Art, Artists Society: Origin of a Modern Dilemma; Painting in England and France, 1750-1850

This study would not have been undertaken but for the suggestion of Professor Meyer Schapiro of Columbia University that I make a comparative, developmental study of painting in England And France during the late eigheenth and early nineteenth century, in terms of my interest in social psychology. I am also very grateful to Professor Ernst H. Gombrich, Director of the Warburg Institute University of London, for his stimulating criticism and many constructive suggestions. I wish to thank Dr. Leo Deuel for his helpful comments, and Mr. James A. Guiher, Jr., Mrs. Priscilla Hiss, and Mr. Walteo Langsam for their editorial contributions to the publication of this book.

Some of the material in this book originally appeared in an article, "The Image of the Artist," by the author in the Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism (Winter, 1962). Grateful acknowledgment is also made for permission to use excerpts from the following books: The Journal of Eugene Delacroix, translated by Walter Pach (Copyright, 1937. by Covici, Friede, Inc. Copyright, 1948, by Crown Publishers. Reprinted by permission of Crown Publishers, Inc.); Charles Baudelaire, The Mirror of Art, translated and edited by Jonathan Mayne (Phaidon Press, Ltd., 1955); and C.R. Leslie, Memoirs of the Life of John Constable (Phaidon Press, Ltd., 1951).

Book Description Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Art, Artists Society: Origin of a Modern Dilemma; Painting in England and France, 1750-1850 After surviving more than half a century of attacks as nonart or anti-art, various styles of modern painting continue to ?ourish despite their ambiguity of form and content. Yet, aside from conferring social prestige and serving as a commodity for investment, or as a decorative appendage to homes or public buildings, painting seems to have little place in our technological twentieth century except as a font of psycho logical discontents and fulfillments.
