City merchants and the arts 1670-1720- Galinou

£9.99

Product description

his ground-breaking publication considers the impacts of the arts in the aftermath of the Great Fire of London when recovery from the catastrophe breathed new life into the lives and aspirations of London's merchant class. This book challenges our traditional assumption of the philistine merchant. The arts mattered to the Restoration mercantile community - and not simply the artistic taste championed by the aristocracy. This pioneering volume shows how the arts shaped the lives and dreams of London's wealthy merchants, from painting to sculpture and architecture, to furniture, costume and the decorative arts. Introduction by Mireille Galinou; LONDON AFTER THE GREAT FIRE: 1. 'The Three Londons' by David Mitchell; 2. The Art Market and Merchant Patronage in London by Gordon and Philippa Glanville; 3. Merchants' Houses by Mireille Galinou; ART IN PRIVATE LIVES: 4. Case Study: the Story of a Merchant's House by Katharine Goodison; 5. Furnishing the London Merchant's Town House by Adriana Turpin; 6.

City Merchants' Landownership around Henley-on-Thames and the Paintings of Jan Siberechts by Laura Wortley; ART IN PUBLIC PLACES: 10. The Fashionable Merchant: A Case Study by Valerie Cumming; 11. Tomb Sculpture and Dynastic Ambition by Anthony Hotson; 12. First Art Commission for Guildhall by Vivien Knight; 13.
