“Romanticism and modern art are one and the same thing” wrote the French poet Charles Baudelaire in 1846.

This study day, held in collaboration with the Open University, explores the diverse subjects and varied styles of Romantic painting with its ‘intimacy, spirituality, colour’ and ‘yearning for the infinite.’ Curators, art historians and artists discuss Delacroix, Romanticism, and the rise of modern art.

Part 4: Emma Barker Gauguin was a prolific storyteller and a skillful manipulator of his own image. Inspired by the first major exhibition in the UK of Gauguin's work for over 50 years, this study day explores myths of the artist from Gauguin to the present day, and some pervasive stereotypes of the idea of the 'artist-genius'. It combines art historical research and debates by leading scholars with insights and analysis by the exhibition curators.

Part 1: Introduction Gauguin was a prolific storyteller and a skillful manipulator of his own image. Inspired by the first major exhibition in the UK of Gauguin's work for over 50 years, this study day explored myths of the artist from Gauguin to the present day, and some pervasive stereotypes of the idea of the 'artist-genius'. It combined art historical research and debates by leading scholars with insights and analysis by the exhibition curators.

This book examines trends in the display of art since the mid-twentieth century, focusing particularly on institutional issues. The contributors present a series of case studies that illuminate the practices of museums, galleries, and exhibitions in Western Europe and the United States and that encourage reflection on the experience of the spectator.

This book provides a reassessment of the work of the eighteenth-century French painter, Jean-Baptiste Greuze, and reconstructs the wider movement in French painting of which he was the leading figure. Drawing on a wide range of contemporary sources, from literature and philosophy to political economy and medical discourse, it offers new interpretations of Greuze’s work that help to account for the extraordinary popularity and high reputation that he enjoyed in his own lifetime.
