Synopsis

Little known today, Jean Baffier (1851-1920) was never far from the headlines during his own lifetime. Born into a poor peasant family, he became a self-taught sculptor whose work ranged from decorative objects to portrayals of peasant life and public monuments. But Baffier would probably not have received wide public attention if he had not also become a folklorist, a promoter of regional culture, and a militant nationalist with beliefs so violent that he attempted a political assassination.



Monumental Intolerance explores the full gamut of Baffier's activities and shows that he was pursuing a vast scheme of national purification and rebirth. Neil McWilliam's discussion of the historical issues surrounding Baffier opens an extraordinary perspective on the culture wars and political struggles of a turbulent period in French history.



This book will interest the art-historical community and historians of fin-de-siecle France.

Neil McWilliam is a Professor of the History of Art at the University of Warwick. His previous books are Bibliography of Salon Criticism in Paris from the July Monarchy to the Second Republic, 1831-1850 (1991) and Dreams of Happiness: Social Art and the French Left, 1830-1850 (1993).
