Description

This volume explores the characteristics of the art and literature of the Second Empire in France; it examines the attitudes and positioning of artists and writers of the period in relation to a regime of dubious legitimacy, and the ways in which that regime exploited to its advantage the artistic capital available to it.

Editor

David Baguley is Emeritus Professor of French at Durham University and the University of Western Ontario.
