Art and Religion in Eighteenth-Century Europe

£2.99

Sorry, this item is now out of stock.

Although the 18th century is viewed as an era of intense but changing religious beliefs, there has been little investigation of the production of religious art during this period. In an interdisciplinary study, historian Nigel Aston focuses on British and French case studies to illustrate changing patterns of display and state patronage, Catholic and Protestant attitudes and the effects on art of the 'de-christianization' which accompanied the French Revolution and brought increasing competition from secular works.
