Description
This monograph explores the life and work of Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres (1780–1867), one of the most important artists of the Neoclassical period. Andrew Shelton fully explores the frequent criticisms of Ingres' work during his lifetime and examines how the sometimes amorphous torsos and extended limbs of his figures reflect the artist's obsession with purity of form over explicit realism—a view that would later inspire such Impressionists as Claude Monet and artists of the 20th century. Among the 178 color reproductions and 9 full-page detail views are the portrait of the Comtesse d'Haussonville, the Grande Odalisque, and the Bather of Valpinçon.
