Théodore GéricaultAthanassoglou-Kallmyer, Nina M.PhaidonLondon2010<p>This monograph explores the life and works of Théodore Géricault (1791–1824), whose compelling career and legacy continue to captivate audiences, artists and critics alike. In her comprehensive survey, Nina Athanassoglou-Kallmyer pays tribute to established Géricault scholarship, but also reassesses the career of an artist too easily miscast as the archetypal ‘tortured soul’ of art-historical Romantic mythology. She examines Géricault’s career in the context of Restoration France, a society under the controversial rule of Louis XVIII, in which civic structures, political process and even aesthetic categories were the subject of vigorous popular debate. Géricault immersed himself in these polemics, taking an intense interest in the fait divers, or ‘daily happenings’, of his time. Athanassoglou-Kallmyer explores his interest in medical and psychiatric science (as exemplified by a series of portraits of monomaniacs), his empathy for the poor and dispossessed (the subject of numerous lithographs) and the entrepreneurial spirit that led him to exhibit his epic canvas, the <em>Raft of the Medusa</em>, in London as a commercial venture. Géricault is presented as an artist committed to capturing contemporary life with creative integrity and dramatic verve.<br></p>
Cézanne and Provence: The Painter in His CultureAthanassoglou-Kallmyer, Nina M.University of Chicago PressChicago2003<p>In 1886 Paul Cézanne left Paris permanently to settle in his native Aix-en-Provence. Nina M. Athanassoglou-Kallmyer argues that, far from an escapist venture like Gauguin’s stay in Brittany or Monet’s visits to Normandy, Cézanne’s departure from Paris was a deliberate abandonment intimately connected with late-nineteenth-century French regionalist politics.<br></p>
Eugène Delacroix: Prints, Politics and Satire, 1814-1822Athanassoglou-Kallmyer, Nina M.Yale University PressNew Haven, CT1991<p>In the years before Delacroix established his reputation as a major painter, he produced some political cartoons and caricatures unlike anything he was to create for the rest of his life. Until now these works have been dismissed as purely commercial undertakings unworthy of the great artist. This book by Nina Athanassoglou-Kallmyer demonstrates that Delacroix's interest in political cartooning was far more significant than has hitherto been assumed.<br></p>
French Images from the Greek War of Independence, 1821-1830Athanassoglou-Kallmyer, Nina M.Yale University PressNew Haven, CT1989<p>The Greek struggle against Ottoman rule was a crucial event in the history and politics of nineteenth-century Europe. In particular it had a strong impact on the political and cultural life of France during the Bourbon Restoration, where it was appropriated and promoted as the symbolic spearhead of liberal ideas and of the growing Romantic rebellion. This book by Nina Athanassoglou-Kallmyer examines the French paintings, prints, and sculptures inspired by the Greek War of Independence.<br></p>
