This volume reinterprets the work of the dramatist Michel-Jean Sedaine and the artist Jean-Baptiste Greuze, in the context of their innovative engagement with discourses of genre in eighteenth-century France, and in the light of new archival evidence. It reveals the complexity and audacity of both men's work, and restablishes the less well-known as a figure of major importance.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Ledbury's book makes delightful reading for anyone interested in eighteenth-century France. It holds some fascinating surprises, for example the relative conservatism of Diderot in his conceptions of genre, and the influence of both Sedaine and Greuze on that most classical of all artists, the painter Jacques-Louis David.'
The French Review
