The First Modern Museums of Art

Inventing The Louvre Art Politics And The Origins Of The Modern Museum In Eighteenth Century Paris [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The First Modern Museums of Art by Carole Paul Book Summary:

In the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries the first modern, public museums of art—civic, state, or national—appeared throughout Europe, setting a standard for the nature of such institutions that has made its influence felt to the present day. Although the emergence of these museums was an international development, their shared history has not been systematically explored until now. Taking up that project, this volume includes chapters on fifteen of the earliest and still major examples, from the Capitoline Museum in Rome, opened in 1734, to the Alte Pinakothek in Munich, opened in 1836. These essays consider a number of issues, such as the nature, display, and growth of the museums’ collections and the role of the institutions in educating the public. The introductory chapters by art historian Carole Paul, the volume’s editor, lay out the relationship among the various museums and discuss their evolution from private noble and royal collections to public institutions. In concert, the accounts of the individual museums give a comprehensive overview, providing a basis for understanding how the collective emergence of public art museums is indicative of the cultural, social, and political shifts that mark the transformation from the early-modern to the modern world. The fourteen distinguished contributors to the book include Robert G. W. Anderson, former director of the British Museum in London; Paula Findlen, Ubaldo Pierotti Professor of Italian History at Stanford University; Thomas Gaehtgens, director of the Getty Research Institute; and Andrew McClellan, dean of academic affairs and professor of art history at Tufts University.

La République de l’œil

Inventing The Louvre Art Politics And The Origins Of The Modern Museum In Eighteenth Century Paris [Pdf/ePub] eBook

La République de l’œil by Pascal Griener Book Summary:

« À l’aube du XVIIIe siècle, le laboratoire de l’historien d’art est achevé. L’émergence des nouveaux outils va transformer radicalement le regard et faciliter une séparation claire, au sein de l’œuvre d’art, entre ses composantes : d’un côté, l’image immatérielle qu’elle dégage, de l’autre, le support matériel qui la rend tangible. Cette scission a été travaillée tout au long du siècle. On peut dire sans exagérer qu’elle constitue l’événement le plus important, quoique le plus ignoré, qui fonde notre modernité. Dans ce livre, je tente de dessiner le nouvel objet scientifique qui émerge dans les cabinets, les collections publiques et privées ; j’évoque les grands instruments forgés par le siècle des Lumières et les protocoles de leur usage. L’histoire de l’art, comme l’histoire des sciences, devrait accorder une importance accrue aux dispositifs qui lui permettent de créer des expériences, d’en tirer des hypothèses, enfin de les déposer dans un support adéquat selon des modalités originales. » P. G. Pascal Griener est professeur d’histoire de l’art à l’Université de Neuchâtel.

Religious Objects in Museums

Inventing The Louvre Art Politics And The Origins Of The Modern Museum In Eighteenth Century Paris [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Religious Objects in Museums by Crispin Paine Book Summary:

In the past, museums often changed the meaning of icons or statues of deities from sacred to aesthetic, or used them to declare the superiority of Western society, or simply as cultural and historical evidence. The last generation has seen faith groups demanding to control 'their' objects, and curators recognising that objects can only be understood within their original religious context. In recent years there has been an explosion of interest in the role religion plays in museums, with major exhibitions highlighting the religious as well as the historical nature of objects. Using examples from all over the world, Religious Objects in Museums is the first book to examine how religious objects are transformed when they enter the museum, and how they affect curators and visitors. It examines the full range of meanings that religious objects may bear - as scientific specimen, sacred icon, work of art, or historical record. Showing how objects may be used to argue a point, tell a story or promote a cause, may be worshipped, ignored, or seen as dangerous or unlucky, this highly accessible book is an essential introduction to the subject.

Paris: The 'New Rome' of Napoleon I

Inventing The Louvre Art Politics And The Origins Of The Modern Museum In Eighteenth Century Paris [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Paris: The 'New Rome' of Napoleon I by Diana Rowell Book Summary:

Napoleon I employed a myriad of media through which to promote his propaganda and his universal hegemony. Classical Rome - home to the great Caesars - was central to his ambitious visions for the transformation of Paris into an imperial metropolis of unprecedented magnitude. Exploring the interrelationship between antiquity, the display of power and the reinvention of Paris, this volume evaluates how the Roman world and post-antique exploitations of Rome influenced Napoleonic Paris, and how Napoleon promoted his authority by appropriating Rome's triumphal architecture and its associated symbolism to relocate 'Rome' in his own times. The volume shows how consideration of Louis XIV's legacy is crucial to understanding the evolution of Napoleon's fascination with imperial Rome. It also charts Napoleon's manipulation of the populist rhetoric of Republican France (and Rome) as he moved from being a general fighting for the Revolutionary cause to become the 'absolute' ruler of a new empire.

The Empty Museum

Inventing The Louvre Art Politics And The Origins Of The Modern Museum In Eighteenth Century Paris [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Empty Museum by Dr Masaaki Morishita Book Summary:

This book examines the processes through which public art museums, as modern Western institutions, were introduced to Japan in the late nineteenth century and how they subsequently developed distinctive national characteristics. The author focuses on one of the most distinctive forms of Japanese museums: the 'empty museums' – museums without collections, permanent displays, and curators. Morishita shows how they developed, in relation to social and cultural conditions at certain periods in modern Japanese history, by engaging with a wide range of interdisciplinary theories, in particular, Pierre Bourdieu's field theory and the conceptual framework of transculturation. Japan is used as a case study to show in general terms how the elements of modern Western culture associated with public art museums were introduced and transformed in the local conditions of non-Western regions. With its unique empirical cases and theoretical focus, the book makes a significant contribution to existing literature in the field of museum studies, both in the English-speaking world and in Japan, and will be of interest to scholars and students of sociology, art history, cultural studies and Japanese studies.

Les Salons de Diderot

Inventing The Louvre Art Politics And The Origins Of The Modern Museum In Eighteenth Century Paris [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Les Salons de Diderot by Pierre Frantz Book Summary:

L'ensemble constitué par les premiers Salons de Diderot et les Essais sur la peinture fait figure de nouveauté radicale dans le paysage littéraire du XVIIIe siècle. Selon la ligne d'un développement ascendant, ils donnent à la critique d'art ses lettres de noblesse, l'affirmant comme une forme d'écriture inédite et, dans le même mouvement, comme une pensée théorique. Si plusieurs ouvrages ont montré comment l'écriture des Salons prolonge les réalisations littéraires antérieures, ou comment elle est portée par l'imaginaire des peintres, ou encore comment son étayage notionnel se construit progressivement, rares sont encore les études qui se sont penchées sur l'échange entre l'écriture immédiate, qui jaillit à la faveur du choc émotionnel, et la théorie qui travaille avec des concepts. Car le parcours ne va pas seulement des Salons aux Essais, comme du particulier au général, du concret à l'abstrait, de l'expérience à la théorie : entre l'écriture et la théorie, une dynamique réciproque se met en place. Les croisements et les dialogues de l'écriture et de la théorie sont le propos original de ce livre.

Surveiller et s'instruire

Inventing The Louvre Art Politics And The Origins Of The Modern Museum In Eighteenth Century Paris [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Surveiller et s'instruire by Dominique Poulot Book Summary:

Sous l'Ancien Regime, quelques collectionneurs sont a l'origine de 'musees' reserves de fait a la tres mince elite de leurs pairs, erudits ou connaisseurs. Certaines collections, intimement liees a l'histoire de telle ou telle cite, revetent le caractere de veritables institutions, tandis queles objets du faste du prince participent de la publicite traditionnelle de sa personne. Mais au cours du XVIIIe siecle une preoccupation inedite d'efficacite gouverne l'idee d'heritage eclaire: le constat de collections inaccessibles, mal rangees ou depourvues de catalogues scandalise ceux qui yvoient le moyen de dissiper l'ignorance, de perfectionner les arts, de reveiller l'esprit public et l'amour de la patrie. Lutter contre l'erreur c'est vouloir elever de memoriaux de toutes les vertus et reunir les modeles capables d'entretenir une feconde emulation.L'annee 1789 inaugure le premier declassement radical de l'heritage d'un pays que la memoire collective condamnera comme 'vandalisme'. Le musee democratique en fournit la meilleure justification, qui doit liberer l'art, restaurer le gout et instruire la posterite des principes enfin reconnus par lasociete regeneree. Au seuil du dix-neuvieme siecle, toutefois, le patrimoine est encore en quete d'une definition et d'un usage regles. Une fois abandonne le modele charitable et professionnel des ecoles de dessin d'Ancien Regime, comme l'utopie des temples des arts et des savoirs dont l'utiliten'apparait guere qu' a l'occasion des fetes officielles, il faut attendre l'episode napoleonien pour voir s'organiser une distribution 'rationnelle' des fonds. A compter des Romantiques, et jusqu'aux denonciations recentes de la 'reification' des Lumieres, le souci exclusif du legs materiel dupasse, mais d'un legs demembre et insignifiant, aux depens de la memoire, fit figure de lieu commun de la critique de la modernite. A l'heure de l'industrie du patrimoine, le dossier est plus que jamais actuel.
