Nineteenth Century Art: A Critical History (Fourth edition)
Stephen F. Eisenman and Thomas Crow
Nineteenth Century Art: A Critical History, hailed as ‘one of the most engrossing and stimulating art history texts to come along for years’ by The Times Higher Education Supplement, embraces many aspects of the so-called ‘new’ art history – attention to issues of class and gender, reception and spectatorship, racism and Eurocentrism, popular and élite culture – while at the same time recovering the remarkable vitality, salience and subversiveness of the era’s best art. This new fourth edition includes four revised chapters together with a substantially expanded chapter on ‘Photography, Modernity and Art’. With 245 illustrations now in colour, including over a dozen brand new images, this rich and diverse volume will interest students, specialists and anyone fascinated by this dynamic period.
