'Stephen Bann's Paul Delaroche makes impressive amends for long years of neglect.' --The Times
'Stephen Bann's exhaustive monograph makes a case for a ''new'' Delaroche, and he argues it with detailed analysis of both images and documents, a tangible enthusiasm for his subject and considerable persuasiveness.' --The Art Newspaper
'Richly illustrated and beautifully produced.' --Burlington Magazine
The French artist Paul Delaroche (1797-1856) achieved widespread recognition through his paintings based on historical events, and in 1853 an Italian critic remarked that he was "at the summit of all living painters". But fame in his own lifetime has been followed by almost total neglect in the 20th century. Seeking to redress the balance, this book examines Delaroche's career from his earliest history paintings to his later, more experimental works, which were influenced by photography. It also offers a detailed analysis of his major works in the context of the visual culture of the early-19th century.See all Product description

Really disappointed in this book. With a RRP of £40.00 you expect a little more for your money. I know you can purchase it new cheaper than that, but even paying £30.00 for this book will leave you feeling cheated. With only 35 coloured images and some so small it seems pointless even adding them. You just feel so angry that once again you have been cheated out of your hard earned money. If you like small B/W pictures and own a magnifying glass, you will love this. If not, don't purchase.
