Drawing on Freudian theories of sexuality and Kant's conception of the beautiful, French art historian Hubert Damisch considers artists as diverse as Raphael, Picasso, Watteau, and Manet to demonstrate that beauty has always been connected to ideas of sexual difference and pleasure. Damisch's tale begins with the judgment of Paris, in which Paris awards Venus the golden apple and thus forever links beauty with desire. The casting of this decision as a mistake—in which desire is rewarded over wisdom and strength—is then linked to theories of the unconscious and psychological drives. In his quest for an exposition of the beautiful in its relation to visual pleasure, Damisch employs what he terms “analytic iconology,” following the revisions and repetitions of the motif of the judgment through art history, philosophy, aesthetics, and psychoanalysis. This translation brings an important figure of the French art historical tradition to Anglo-American audiences.

The fascinating new book by the author of Brunelleschi’s Dome and Michelangelo and the Pope’s Ceiling: a saga of artistic rivalry and cultural upheaval in the decade leading to the birth of Impressionism. If there were two men who were absolutely central to artistic life in France in the second half of the nineteenth century, they were Edouard Manet and Ernest Meissonier. While the former has been labelled the “Father of Impressionism” and is today a household name, the latter has sunk into obscurity. It is difficult now to believe that in 1864, when this story begins, it was Meissonier who was considered the greatest French artist alive and who received astronomical sums for his work, while Manet was derided for his messy paintings of ordinary people and had great difficulty getting any of his work accepted at the all-important annual Paris Salon. Manet and Meissonier were the Mozart and Salieri of their day, one a dangerous challenge to the establishment, the other beloved by rulers and the public alike for his painstakingly meticulous oil paintings of historical subjects. Out of the fascinating story of their parallel careers, Ross King creates a lens through which to view the political tensions that dogged Louis-Napoleon during the Second Empire, his ignominious downfall, and the bloody Paris Commune of 1871. At the same time, King paints a wonderfully detailed and vivid portrait of life in an era of radical social change: on the streets of Paris, at the new seaside resorts of Boulogne and Trouville, and at the race courses and picnic spots where the new bourgeoisie relaxed. When Manet painted Dejeuner sur l’herbe or Olympia, he shocked not only with his casual brushstrokes (described by some as applied by a ‘floor mop’) but with his subject matter: top-hatted white-collar workers (and their mistresses) were not considered suitable subjects for ‘Art’. Ross King shows how, benign as they might seem today, these paintings changed the course of history. The struggle between Meissonier and Manet to see their paintings achieve pride of place at the Salon was not just about artistic competitiveness, it was about how to see the world. Full of fantastic tidbits of information (such as the use of carrier pigeons and hot-air balloons during the siege of Paris), and a colourful cast of characters that includes Baudelaire, Courbet, and Zola, with walk-on parts for Monet, Renoir, Degas, and Cezanne, The Judgment of Paris casts new light on the birth of Impressionism and takes us to the heart of a time in which the modern French identity was being forged.

With unique access to the main players and a contagious passion for his subject, Taber renders this historic event and its tremendous aftershocks—repositioning the industry and sparking a golden age for viticulture across the globe. With an eclectic cast of characters and magnificent settings, Judgment of Paris is an illuminating tale and a story of the entrepreneurial spirit of the new world conquering the old.

Excerpt from A Man of Genius: A Story of the Judgment of Paris The low-c'eiled room, with its bare rafters and clean scrubbed ﬂoor, was like the cabin of a ship kept sweet with the nicety of a sailor's hands. A wreck-wood fire burnt in an old hobbed grate, and one large window, curved like the port-hole of an ancient galleon, looked out to sea. Pinned to the wall were pictures of birds cut from illus trated papers, interspersed with rough daubs of fishes, painted in the vivid colours of fish just taken from the water. In one corner there was also a menagerie of sick beasts, a rabbit-hutch, and a cage or two, for John Darra cott had a fine skill in mending the creatures that had come to grief in the battle of life; at one time it would be a bird with a broken wing that inhabited a cage until it could ﬂy again, at another, a rabbit with its leg in splints. At last the dreamer tore himself from his visions, and, slipping the box into his trouser pocket, opened the house door and stepped out into the roar of sea and wind. On a long ledge of rock crouched a double row of slated, weather beaten houses, from which rose contorted circles of chimney smoke that eddied over the boiling cauldron of maddened waters that surged just below. Over the edge of. The grassy escarpment above this human eyry, five grey donkeys peered with the enquiring faces of 'abstracted curiosity. Hartland Quay, so called because it had once been a coal Wharf, was now half hotel and half farm, and Darracott the sole labourer employed on it, for the farm, being composed chieﬂy of cliff-pastures, required but little labour.
