CAVALIERS AND CARDINALS: NINETEENTH-CENTURY FRENCH ANECDOTAL PAINTINGS. Eric M. Zafran. Taft Museum, Cincinnati, 1992. Distributed by University of Pennsylvania Press, Philadelphia. 156 pp. with 111 ills. (29 col.). 22 x 28 cm. LC 92-81383 ISBN 0915577232 In English.
Focusing on a mode of narrative genre painting favored by Jean-Louis-Ernest Meissonier, Jehan-Georges Vibert, Jean-Leon Gerome and other French Salon artists, this catalogue presents illustrations and individual discussions of more than 60 paintings and watercolors drawn from American collections, many of them meticulously rendered, small-format portrayals of cavaliers at leisure, satirical depictions of clerics, or interpretations of scenes in the lives of such historical figures as Napoleon and Richelieu. An informative essay traces the development of anecdotal painting in 19th-century France and discusses the careers of the featured artists.
