9780300084016: Art in France, 1900–1940 (The Yale University Press Pelican History of Art Series)

Art in France developed in ways that were of paramount importance to twentieth-century art during the four decades between the Exposition Universelle of 1900 and the invasion of France in 1940. This enormously innovative and informative study of those developments breaks new ground by setting them within the frameworks both of their unstable social, political, and intellectual world and of the official and independent” institutions of art.

Christopher Green moves from the great Paris Exhibitions of 1900, 1925, and 1937 as representations of France and a critical examination of modern movements Fauvism,Cubism, Surrealism to the questions raised by artists’ relationships with the state, the critics, and the rapidly expanding dealer system, as well as the problems met by foreign and women artists making careers in France. In this context, he is able to develop a new analysis of innovation within the practices of artists ranging from Matisse to Picasso and from Duchamp to Dalí, one that pays attention to the reactionary as well as the radical. Major themes are tackled in fresh interpretations of the work produced within these unprecedented developments: modernity, in relation both to technological progress and to gender and social class; tradition and the idea of the nation around the twin traumas of the Great War and the rise of Fascism; and the assault against the ideals of both modernity and civilization launched by artists committed to the primitive” and to the new, challenging notions of identity and sexuality derived from psychoanalysis.

The book can be a starting point for newcomers to this important field and at the same time opens the subject up in new ways that will engage the more expert reader too.

About the Author:

Christopher Green is professor of the history of art at the Courtauld Institute, University of London. He is the author of Juan Gris, Cubism and Its Enemies, and Léger and the Avant-Garde, all published by Yale University Press.

From Library Journal:

Accessible and solid scholarship has been the hallmark of the revived "Pelican History of Art" series, and Green (history of art, Courtauld Inst., London; Juan Gris, LJ 5/1/93), an undisputed expert in the field, continues the tradition with this latest installment. The intense, far-reaching text covers four tumultuous decades, from the Exposition Universelle of 1900 to the German invasion of France in World War II. Discussions of major artists and the avant-garde's many -isms and schisms are balanced by sections on dealers, collectors, lesser-known women artists, critics, art institutions, foreign influences, and the period's volatile social and political history. The documentation and select bibliography are superb. The reproductions are numerous but often small and in black and white only. There is much to learn and admire here, and the work is of value as both an upper-division textbook and an authoritative overview. Highly recommended for academic and institutional libraries.
