What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

This impressively documented, interdisciplinary work will be an invaluable introduction to late eighteenth-century and early nineteenth-century art. Dorothy Johnson explains with eloquence, insight, and lucidity why mythological art was placed at the top of the genre hierarchy, and she sets its aesthetic and intellectual achievements into the context of the natural sciences and psychology as well as literature, archaeology, and historiography.—Beth S. Wright, editor of The Cambridge Companion to Delacroix
