Editorial Reviews

ABOUT THOMAS COUTURE -- "In his time, Thomas Couture (1815-79) was probably the most influential painter in Europe. His work was widely admired and discussed." His was a diverse art. Most heralded as a high-drama "history painter," he was also a masterful and sensitive portraitist and a genre painter. However, he was never fully embraced by the Academy. And he was never part of the avant-garde. Operating in this "middle ground," he tends to be overlooked in the history of 19th century art. ABOUT THIS BOOK -- Boime's original, incisive, and energetic monograph is a prodigious work. Boime studies Couture's "eclectic approach" both in detail and from wider perspectives. Thus, we get close studies of individual paintings as well as considerations ofCouture's social and political origins, his influences as a painter and teacher, and his placement in the history of European painting. BOOK DETAILS -- a large chunky hardback, cloth over boards, 5 pounds, 683 pp. Color frontispiece. B&w illustrations throughout. 45 pp of End Notes and a 15 page Bibliography. Indexed.
