"An impeccably researched and cogently argued book that provides rich material for scholars in many fields." H-FRANCESee more reviews
" Invigorating and original [...] Fraser's clear prose, lucid argument, and original interpretation will make her book required reading not only for scholars and students of nineteenth-century French art and its institutions, but also for those in all disciplines interested in post-revolutionary France or interdisciplinary approaches to visual and political culture." --CAA Reviews
"Elisabeth Fraser's beautifully illustrated study of the early work of Eugene Delacroix--notably the three great paintings Dante and Virgil, Scenes from the Massacre of Chios and Death of Sardanapalus--is firmly situated in the historical context of Restoration France (1814-30)." Journal of Modern History Alan B. Spitzer, University of Iowa
