Description: Globalizing Impressionism: Reception, Translation, and Transnationalism
This anthology ends with a call to continue globalizing the study of impressionism. Published conference proceedings have the effect of fixing an otherwise ephemeral and fleeting moment in the discipline. By contrast, we intend for the debate around globalizing impressionism, initiated by the 2017 Courtauld Institute of Art conference, to be continuous and open-ended. Since the Courtauld...

Description: Globalizing Impressionism: Reception, Translation, and Transnationalism
Alexis Clark (Editor), Frances Fowle (Editor)
For many decades, impressionism has occupied a central place in the canon of art history, but new transnational approaches to the study of nineteenth-century art have complicated the perpetuation of Francocentric histories. As the field’s attention has increasingly turned to places outside of France, including Britain, the United States, Australia, and beyond, the time is ripe to place impressionism within a global context.

In this collection of 14 essays, a distinguished group of scholars deploy new methodological tools, theories, and paradigms to explore how impressionism as an artistic language simultaneously operated locally, nationally, and internationally around the world; how Europe, especially Paris, has existed as a privileged center of modernity and modern art; how a transnational network of artists, critics, scholars, curators, and dealers worked across linguistic, institutional, geographical, and political boundaries; and much more. These texts, while not abandoning France and French impressionism, contribute to the ongoing work to dismantle the franco-centrism of impressionism studies and the anglocentrism of art history as a discipline.
