Was $82.50; save 33%! Focused on the central role of Swabian court patronage and Stuttgart's art academy in the rise and development of Neo-Classicism in Germany, this scholarly catalogue features fine reproductions and detailed discussions of more than 300 paintings, sculptures and drawings selected from public and private collections throughout Europe, including portraits, figure studies, images of mythological scenes, landscapes and history paintings by Johann Heinrich Dannecker, Joseph Anton Koch, Philipp Jakob Scheffauer, Christian Gottlieb Schick, Eberhard Wachter, Johann Baptist Seele, Philipp Friedrich Hetsch and some 25 other artists. An introductory essay describing the history of Stuttgart during the Neo-Classical era supplements a 15-part text that includes discussions of late 18th-century art education in the city, the studies of Schick, Koch and other Swabian artists in Rome and Paris, and the principal themes and stylistic transitions reflected in the exhibited works. (A volume of essays published in conjunction with a related symposium is available as Worldwide 24134.)
