Rivals and Conspirators: The Paris Salons and the Modern Art Centre
2013·Newcastle upon Tyne
by Brauer, Fae
Newcastle upon Tyne: Cambridge Scholars Publishing, 2013. Softcover. VG. Color pictorial wraps, 430 pp., BW & color illus. Presents "an unprecedented history of dissension" between the independent Salons of Paris and their artists. "Also exposes how, just below the welcoming internationalist veneer of this 'modern art centre.' intense persecutionist paranoia lay festering. Whenever France's 'civilizing mission' seemed culturally, commercially or colonially threatened, it erupted in waves of national xenophobia turning artistic rivalry into bitter enmity. In exposing how rivals became transmuted ionto conspirators, ultimately this book reveals a paradox resonant in histories that celebrate the international triumph of French modern art: that this magnetic 'centre,' which began by welcoming international modernists, ended by attacking them for undermining its cultural supremacy, contaminating its 'civilizing mission' and politically persecuting the very modernist culture for which it has received historical renown."
