Product Description

Product Description

Feminism theory can be seen in many aspect of life, even in paintings. This book is a superb explanation of feminism in the era of the French Revolution, seen through this painting

Many of us take paintings at face value but it is extremely important to look deeper, below the idealized picture on the canvas, into the true meaning of the artwork. This book discusses how the the art of the period and Le Dernier Appel des Condamnés by Charles Louis Muller gives a glimpse into the idealized female. It specifically discusses how were women perceived in revolutionary France and the roles of women in politics in France during that time.

5.0 out of 5 stars fascinating analysis 5 April 2014

I didn't know this painting at all before I read the book. Nor was I familiar with the piece of French history it references. The author provides a well-researched and thoughtful thesis that gives insight into both the painting and the meta-cultural context of the artist.
5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting topic, well constructed 3 April 2014

Not normally my area of interest, but recommended by a friend of a friend. Well constructed argument, with plenty of color. Worth checking out, especially if women's studies or politics in art is a particular area of interest. Fantastic way to get a deeper appreciation of a story we think we all know.
