Описание: Printing the Grand Manner illuminates an extraordinary moment in the intertwined history of painting and printmaking in Europe. The brilliant age of Louis XIV saw the creation of a group of unusually large prints--some of which measure a fantastic five feet by three feet when assembled--that reproduced works by the French king's remarkably inventive court painter, designer, and arts administrator, Charles Le Brun (1619-1690). The two essays and the catalogue entries in this volume focus on eleven of these monumental reproductive engravings. The authors not only relate the fascinating story of the production of these prints but also explore their role in the glorification of Louis XIV and in forming critical opinion of Le Brun as an artist and as an advocate of history painting in the Grand Manner.

Описание: This monographic study is an elegant and eloquent account of the power, character and mentalite of the French church under Louis XIV and of its relationship
to the crown and other elite institutions, and to its critics and other congregations. Bergin also fills a gap in our understanding of the personal rule of Louis XIV, for the church was vital to
the functioning of the ancien regime and the period simply cannot be understood without integrating this element into the story. Joseph Bergin explores the king's practice of appointing
qualified and worthy men as bishops, and of the difficulties and tensions inherent in it.
Candidates generally began their careers with theology degrees and graduated to minor
clerical positions, where they might gain valuable, practical experience, prior to their appointment as relatively mature men. Rarely were archbishops chosen who had not served as
bishops, but appeal was to be found in family credit as well as demonstrable ability. The author explains the provenance of this system, illustrating it with numerous well-drawn examples
and examining it in detail.
In addition he accounts for the deficiencies of this policy of appointment.
