Synopsis

This book looks at the early globalization of artistic influence. Art historians have long been accustomed to thinking about art and artists in terms of national traditions. This volume takes a different approach, suggesting instead that a history of art based on national divisions often obscures the processes of cultural appropriation and global exchange that shaped the visual arts of Europe in fundamental ways between 1492 and the early twentieth century. Essays here analyze distinct zones of contact - between various European states, between Asia and Europe, or between Europe and so-called primitive cultures in Africa, the Americas, and the South Pacific - focusing mainly but not exclusively on painting, drawing, or the decorative arts. Each case foregrounds the centrality of international borrowings or colonial appropriations and counters conceptions of European art as a 'pure' tradition uninfluenced by the artistic forms of other cultures.

The contributors analyze the social, cultural, commercial, and political conditions of cultural contact - including tourism, colonialism, religious pilgrimage, trade missions, and scientific voyages - that enabled these exchanges well before the modern age of globalization. The contributors are Claire Farago, Elisabeth A. Fraser, Julie Hochstrasser, Christopher Johns, Carol Mavor, Mary D. Sheriff, and Lyneise E. Williams.

MARY D. SHERIFF is W. R. Kenan Jr. Distinguished Professor and chair of the art department at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Her many books include The Exceptional Woman: Elisabeth Vigee-Lebrun and the Cultural Politics of Art and Moved by Love: Inspired Artists and Deviant Women in Eighteenth-Century France.
