Editorial Reviews


'While grounded in an understanding of dance, the project Cohen takes up in this clearly written and beautifully produced book addresses the boarder subject of bodily display - in her words, the 'artful body'... Her book will be an important point of departure for investigations into how spectacle evolved beyond the period she covers.' Burlington Magazine

Book Description

An interdisciplinary study of images produced in France during the reign of Louis XIV. Cohen demonstrates the parallels among different visual forms and uses these interrelationships to prove the changing significance of the 'artful body' within French culture of the ancien régime.
