5.0 out of 5 stars Informative and Intelligent 20 Mar. 2013
By Rigby114 - Published on
Format: Paperback
After using this book extensively for a serious academic project, I believe that Mainardi has tackled an often discussed topic with a unique and informative perspective. Though not a text for casual readers, The End of the Salon is a wonderful window onto the intricacies of the Parisian art world of the period, bringing a multi-disciplinary point of view to this fascinating time.

1.0 out of 5 stars I hear an axe grinding in the background: a disappointing read 1 Dec. 2005
By Signal Flag - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I thought this was going to be a book on the history of the salon period of French art rather than a book by an author who superimposes a contemporary notion on the period. The writer makes too many leaps and assumptions from the period of the Third Republic in France for credibility. Linking the alleged end of modernism and beginnings of post-modernism to events in France 100 years earlier is thin stuff. The book also unfortunately lacks a sense of insight or flavour from the period. A disappointing read on probably a very interesting period or art.
