About the Authors
  • This collection of essays about the great seventeenth-century French artist, Nicolas Poussin, addresses issues including: the artist's practice and theory, his patronage, the reception and interpretation of his work, and his critical fortune at the hands of scholars, artists, and the art-going public. Together, the essays offer the reader not a single, uniform "Poussin" but a series of varied, sometimes contradictory, views of the artist that differ according to the historical lens through which his work is examined.

    • Nicolas Poussin, great seventeenth-century French artist
    • Commemorative anthology
    • Essays commissioned by the Courtald Institute of Art in London
