GENDER, SPACE AND THE GAZE IN POST-HAUSSMANN VISUAL CULTURE: BEYOND THE FLANEUR. Temma Balducci. Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, New York, 2017. An Ashgate Book. 250 pp. with 58 ills. (8 col.). 26 x 18 cm. ISBN 9781472445865 In English.
Publisher's description: The flaneur described in Charles Baudelaire's The Painter of Modern Life (1863) has become central to understandings of gender, space and the gaze in scholarship on the post-Haussmann period. Baudelaire's privileged and leisurely hero of the Parisian boulevard is often the template by which bourgeois masculinity and, by implication, femininity is theorized. The flaneur has been especially significant for art historians who have seen the figure as an embodiment of creative masculinity, particularly in scholarship on Edouard Manet and Edgar Degas. Relying on cultural studies, social history, urban studies and feminist theory, Gender, Space and the Gaze in Post-Haussmann Paris: Rethinking Baudelaire's Flaneur contends that the dominance of Baudelaire's flaneur in theories of gender, space and the gaze is out of proportion with the figure's relevance in understanding how these constructs were imagined in the late nineteenth century. The argument is supported by avant-garde and mainstream visual culture, art criticism, novels, prescriptive literature, architectural practices, interior design trends and fashion journals.
