In an extraordinary partnership, H.W. Janson and Robert Rosenblum explore the nineteenth century's creative wellsprings and present here the first comprehensive view of its achievements. Janson's History of Art, translated into thirteen languages, has revolutionized the study of art history. Rosenblum, his brilliant colleague, is a major force in the field, both as writer and as teacher.
To match the opulence of their subject, the authors selected over 500 illustrations, of which 89 are faithfully reproduced in excellent color. Dr. Janson photographed many of the sculptures himself, and many of the paintings have never before been reproduced in color.
In their text, Rosenblum and Janson draw from the historical documentation of the period the dynamics of the making and viewing of art, examining the reciprocal influences of art and technology, art and politics, art and literature, art and music.
