This volume interrogates labels used in standard histories of the art of this period (baroque, rococo, neoclassicism, and Romanticism) and examines both established and recent art-historical methodologies, including formalism, iconology, spectatorship and reception, and identity and difference. Key topics include baroque Rome, Dutch paintings of the Golden Age, Georgian London, the Paris salon, and the impact of the discovery of the South Pacific.
