Item #76613 MAKING UP THE ROCOCO: Francois Boucher and His Critics. Melissa Hyde.

MAKING UP THE ROCOCO: Francois Boucher and His Critics

Los Angeles: Getty Research Institute, 2006. Wraps. "To admire the seductively brilliant works of Francois Boucher (1703-70), Denis Diderot decreed, was to be a stranger 'to the truth, to just ideas, and to the seriousness of art.' Making Up the Rococo challenges the long-standing critical disregard for Boucher's oeuvre and for rococo aesthetics in general, offering an engaging analysis of the cultural and artistic implications of makeup and of making up social, gender, and painterly identities." Tall octavo: x, 255 p. with numerous illustrations (some color). Original pictorial paper wrappers. A fine copy. Fine. Item #76613
