Description: Art and the French Commune: Imagining Paris after War and Revolution
~I OWE SO MUCH to my colleagues and students over the years for their work and unfailing encouragement that it is impossible to do them all justice in the short space allotted for acknowledgments. But I would especially like to express gratitude to Sanda Agalidi, Albert Alhadeff, Wayne V. Andersen, Edward Berenson, Jerry Boime, Myra Boime, Elizabeth Broun,...

Description: Art and the French Commune: Imagining Paris after War and Revolution
~First, it is necessary to examine the situation of the various members of the French avant-garde at the time of the establishment of the Commune and their response to it. This in turn cannot be discussed independently of the Franco-Prussian war which immediately preceded the Commune and with which it is inescapably attached. The presence of Prussian...

~I WANT to begin this chapter with the case study of Gustave Caillebotte, both patron of, and participant in, the Impressionist collective. He was the youngest (born 1848) and most well off of the group, and the most conservative in style and content. His major works attest to a thorough assimilation of the rhetoric of...
