About the Authors
  • The Academy and the Limits of Painting in Seventeenth-Century France is the first study in over a century devoted to the creation of one of the most important European institutions of art, the French Académie Royale. Founded in the mid-1600s, the Academy institutionalized the discourse around painting and remained a decisive influence until the close of the nineteenth century. In the process of forging an identity for itself, the Academy redefined almost every aspect of art--the nature of art training, the sources of patronage, the social standing of the artist, and the place of the arts in national life.

    • The first study in over a century devoted to the French Académie Royale
    • Provides a new historicist approach
    • Includes several previously unpublished illustrations

    "...Duro's book serves as another significant contribution in the ongoing reassessment of the origins of modernism and as an indispensible survey of the range of Academic pictorial theory in the ancien régime." Journal of Modern History
