Summary
"Art, Dance, and the Body in French Culture of the Ancien Regime is an interdisciplinary study of images produced in France during the reign of Louis XIV and the Regency. Focusing on the relationship between art and dance during this period, Sarah Cohen examines how the aristocratic body was used to project political and social ideas through artful styles of physical display. Cohen analyses complex modes of bodily representation, including ballet, masquerading, and gender performance; theater, garden, and interior design; and the paintings and drawings of Antoine Watteau. She demonstrates the interrelationships among these different visual forms and uses them to interpret the varied and changing significance of the "artful body" within French culture of the ancien regime."--Jacket
