Summary "This original book examines how the ambitions of artists in eighteenth-century France were affected by public opinions about the arts--the tastes of the art critics, of the state, and of the crowds who visited art salons. Among the many artists whose work is discussed and portrayed are Watteau, Greuze, and David." --
