The essays in "Antoine Watteau: Perspectives on the Artist and the Culture of His Time" offer a richly textured portrait of the artist's life, work, and reputation for students, specialists, and the general public. The volume brings together art historians whose research is currently defining the field of Watteau studies with scholars from history and literature who have published widely on the political and cultural trends of Watteau's era. Essays include studies of the artist's drawing practice, his relation to the emerging public sphere, and the changing fortunes of his reputation, as well as considerations of art dealing and fashion in Watteau's time. Other essays take up conversation, dance, seduction, and theatricality as essential themes of Watteau's art. This volume will be an indispensable resource for all those interested in the visual culture of Regency France. The book contains sixty-five illustrations. Mary D. Sheriff is W. R. Kenan Jr. Distinguished Professor and Department Chair in the Department of Art at the University of North Carolina.
