CIVILISATION AND NINETEENTH-CENTURY ART: A EUROPEAN CONCEPT IN GLOBAL CONTEXT. Ed. by David O'Brien. Manchester University Press, 2016. Distributed by Oxford University Press. 268 pp. with 91 ills. 25 x 18 cm. ISBN 9781784992682 In English.
Publisher's description: Over the course of the long nineteenth century, Civilisation was the subject of some of the most prominent public mural paintings and sculptures in Europe and the United States, especially those that speculated on the direction of history. It also underpinned Western depictions of non-Western societies and evaluations of social progress and artistic excellence. The essays in this volume explore the ways in which the idea of Civilisation acted as a lens through which Europeans and Americans represented themselves and others, how this concept reshaped understandings of historical and artistic development, and also how it changed and was put to new uses as the century progressed. This collection will prove invaluable to students and academics in both history and art history.
