Item description for Citizens and Kings: Portraits in the Age of Enlightenment by Sebastien Allard...
Portraiture was at a crossroads from 1770--1830, a period when the influence of monarchs and aristocrats waned in favor of the new pioneers of democracy. This beautifully illustrated catalogue traces the evolving presentation of the portrait sitter, with sumptuous full-color reproductions of works by masters presented alongside lesser-known but equally intriguing pieces. An international team of scholars provides valuable information on sitters as well as artists, plus discussions of key works from the Enlightenment and revolutionary period.
