Documenting an ambitious, multifaceted exhibition focused on the character and significance of images of liberty and democracy in European art from the rise of early republics and confederations through the revolutions of the 18th and 19th centuries, this scholarly catalogue presents small illustrations and lengthy analyses of hundreds of works on political and historical subjects by artists ranging from Holbein, Tintoretto and Rembrandt to David, Goya, Daumier and Hodler. Six essays discussing such topics as the architectural styles adopted by republican societies, the use of portraits to express political concepts and the significance of republican images of women precede a twelve-part presentation of the works arranged to reflect major historical, regional and artistic developments.
