The Exceptional Woman
Elisabeth Vigée-Lebrun (1755-1842) was an enormously successful painter, a favorite portraitist of Marie-Antoinette, and one of the few women accepted into the Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture. In accounts of her role as an artist, she was simultaneously flattered as a charming woman and vilified as monstrously unfeminine. In The Exceptional Woman, Mary D. Sheriff uses Vigée-Lebrun's career to explore the contradictory position of "woman-artist" in the moral, philosophical, professional, and medical debates about women in eighteenth-century France. Paying particular attention to painted and textual self-portraits, Sheriff shows how Vigée-Lebrun's images and memoirs undermined the assumptions about "woman" and the strictures imposed on women. Engaging ancien-régime philosophy, as well as modern feminism, psychoanalysis, literary theory, and art criticism, Sheriff's interpretations of Vigée-Lebrun's paintings challenge us to rethink the work and the world of this controversial woman artist.
The Illustration of Robinson Crusoe 1719 1920
Defoe's Robinson Crusoe has exerted a powerful fascination of generations of readers since its publication in 1719. And not only readers, but artists too; few works have ever been published in so many illustrated editions. In this analysis of over 100 representative illustrations Blewett shows both how Crusoe as a figure in the Western imagination and Robinson Crusoe as a text have been viewed and interpreted by illustrators and engravers not only in the English speaking world byt in Europe as well. His unique study is an invaluable work not only for fans of Defoe's most famous work, but for everyone interested in the history of book illustration.
