Sedaine, Greuze and the boundaries of genre

Abstract:

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.
