French Paintings in The Metropolitan Museum of Art from the Early Eighteenth Century through the Revolution
This authoritative book surveys the remarkable collection of 18th-century French paintings at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in the context of the institutions that governed the visual arts in the 1700s—the Académie Royale de Peinture et de Sculpture, the Académie de France à Rome, and the Paris Salon. The works catalogued feature stunning examples by leading painters of the period, including Antoine Watteau, Jean Siméon Chardin, François Boucher, Joseph Siffred Duplessis, Jean-Baptiste Greuze, Hubert Robert, Jacques Louis David, the Van Blarenberghes, and François Gérard. Katharine Baetjer provides an incisive history of the Académie Royale, its formation, principles, and regulations, and explores the beginnings of public art discourse in France. Organized chronologically by artists’ birth years, the book includes a short biography of each artist and in-depth discussions of individual paintings that incorporate the most up-to-date scholarship, while numerous comparative illustrations provide essential context.

Ancient Marbles in Naples in the Eighteenth Century: Findings, Collections, Dispersals (Studies in the History of Collecting & Art Markets)
"In Ancient Marbles in Naples in the Eighteenth Century Eloisa Dodero aims at documenting the history of numerous private collections formed in Naples during the 18th century, with particular concern for the "Neapolitan marbles" and the circumstances of their dispersal. Research has thus made it possible to formulate a synthesis of the collecting dynamics of Naples in the 18th century, to define the interest of the great European collectors, especially British, in the antiquities of the city and its territory and to draw up a catalogue which for the first time brings together the nucleus of sculptures reported in the Neapolitan collections or coming from irregular excavations, most of which shared the destiny of dispersal, in some cases here traced in definitive fashion"--

Siting China in Germany: Eighteenth-Century Chinoiserie and Its Modern Legacy
Chinoiserie—the use of motifs, materials, and techniques considered “Chinese” in ceramics, furniture, interior design, and landscape architecture—has often been associated with luxurious superfluity, shallow escapism, and courtly decadence. In Siting China in Germany, Christiane Hertel challenges conventional assumptions about this art form, demonstrating how it fomented reflections about cultural and historical difference in eighteenth-century Germany and beyond.Considering collections, gardens, and literature, including the extraordinary porcelain palaces at Dresden and Rastatt, Hesse-Kassel’s Wilhelmsthal and Wilhelmshöhe palace gardens, and Thomas Mann’s historical novel Lotte in Weimar, Hertel chronicles and interprets the extensive history of chinoiserie during the long eighteenth century in Germany. In particular, Hertel’s study focuses on how the manifestation of chinoiserie made room in the initially courtly and then increasingly collective imaginary for an understanding of cultural and historical difference as well as identity. Hertel’s erudite analysis of the cultural significance of German chinoiserie will interest art historians and scholars of Orientalism and German Sinophilia as well as Sinophobia.

Roubiliac and the Eighteenth-Century Monument: Sculpture as Theatre (The Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art)
Louis François Roubiliac, the most compelling sculptor in eighteenth-century Britain, was responsible for many complex and dramatic monuments that can be seen in Westminster Abbey and churches throughout the country. This book is not only the first extended treatment of the artist since 1928 but is also an exploration of tomb sculpture in the context of the period.The first section, written by David Bindman, discusses the reasons for the commissioning of tomb sculpture, ideas of death and the afterlife, the setting of the tomb, the themes that govern its imagery, and the negotiations between sculptor and patron. The second section, written by Malcolm Baker, examines in detail the processes involved in the design and making of the monuments. Through an analysis of the monuments themselves, the surviving models, and a range of documentary evidence, Baker considers Roubiliac's technical procedures and compares them to those of other sculptors in Britain and on the continent. The volume ends with a full catalogue raisonné of Roubiliac's known monuments. Each commission is discussed in detail, with full accounts of contemporary documentation, inscriptions, physical construction, and related models.By examining the particular social and religious conditions of the time it becomes pos...

The Marble Index: Roubiliac and Sculptural Portraiture in Eighteenth-Century Britain (Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art)
Providing the first thorough study of sculptural portraiture in 18th-century Britain, this important book challenges both the idea that portrait necessarily implies painting and the assumption that Enlightenment thought is manifest chiefly in French art. By considering the bust and the statue as genres, Malcolm Baker, a leading sculpture scholar, addresses the question of how these seemingly traditional images developed into ambitious forms of representation within a culture in which many core concepts of modernity were being formed. The leading sculptor at this time in Britain was Louis Francois Roubiliac (1702–1762), and his portraits of major figures of the day, including Alexander Pope, Isaac Newton, and George Frederic Handel, are examined here in detail. Remarkable for their technical virtuosity and visual power, these images show how sculpture was increasingly being made for close and attentive viewing. The Marble Index eloquently establishes that the heightened aesthetic ambition of the sculptural portrait was intimately linked with the way in which it could engage viewers familiar with Enlightenment notions of perception and selfhood.

A Small and Select Collection of Eighteenth Century Sculptures: Including a Bust of George Washington by Houdon Believed to Be Original Plaster; Other ... Rodin, Barye; From the Collection of Mme
Excerpt from A Small and Select Collection of Eighteenth Century Sculptures: Including a Bust of George Washington by Houdon Believed to Be Original Plaster; Other Distinguished Sculptors Represented Are Clodion, Pajou, Merchi, Rodin, Barye; From the Collection of Mme. Piazza-Chaigneau, Paris and Barbizon A few weeks ago Mme. Piazza-chaigneau notified me of her intention to sell at auction a number of sculptures from her collection. She wished to consult me, as has been her habit, in regard to the artistic value of certain objects in her possession. I considered her plans for the sale a secret of which I was the guardian, but I was quickly to learn otherwise: the secret has come to light. A number of amateurs and prominent antiquaries of Paris, England, Germany, and America have written me asking my advice about Mme. Piazza-chaigneau's collection. If the news of the sale, still un official, has interested the public to such an extent, certainly it is proof that the reputation of this collection of sculpture is clearly established.
