Commemorating Poussin: Reception & Interpretation of the Artist, edited by Katie Scott & Genevieve Warwick. Published by Cambridge University Press, 1999.
This collection of essays on Nicolas Poussin address issues of Poussin's practice and theory, the patronage, reception and interpretation of his work, and his critical fortune at the hands of scholars, artists, and the art-going public. Together, they offer the reader not a single, uniform 'Poussin' but a series of varied, sometimes contradictory, views of the artist differing according to the historical lens through which his work is examined. Written to mark his quartercentenary in 1994, the essays in this volume were originally given as a series of lectures under the auspices of the Courtauld Institute of Art.
Hardback first edition. With dust jacket, in good condition (some creases and small marks on the cover). Inside, book condition is practically as new, save for the underlining in light pencil of a few sentences throughout.
