Book Description

"Driskel’s book represents a considerable achievement. He has made it virtually impossible for historians and art historians to persist in blithely dismissing nineteenth-century religious painting. In short, he has made an original and important contribution to the cultural history of nineteenth-century France." —Journal of Modern History

Representing Belief provides a detailed discussion and analysis of the forms and meanings in religious art in nineteenth-century France. Many of the artists discussed are firmly installed in the present canons of value (Delacroix, Manet, Gauguin), while others (Flandrin, Orsel, Gleyre, Cazin) were major figures in their own time, but are generally ignored today. Driskel shows that religious art of the period, though traditionally minimized by art historians, is of major importance to the cultural history of France.
