Depiction and Description of the Female Body in Nineteenth-Century French Art, Literature, and Society: Women in the Parks of Paris, 1848-1900
2014 0-7734-1451-7
This book is a groundbreaking and illuminating study of nineteenth-century Paris, its art, culture, and the history of gender and urban space. Sinéad Furlong-Clancy’s choice of the public park as frame for the analysis of images of women in the city is a departure from existing art, cultural-material and literary histories and connects the disciplines of art history, literature, fashion history, urban history, garden history, nineteenth-century French studies, and gender studies.
