This work on aesthetics ties together the research on painting and literary forms of representation with close scrutiny of four major figures from the perspective of the creators and their analysis of the creative process. It examines French 18th-century aesthetics, visual arts, painting, autobiography and theatre. Problems of representation incude analysis of genre, gender, species (still-life vs. portraiture), social cast (noble vs. bourgeois), and the necessity of self-erasure in the display of oneself as an artist.
