The Flâneur Abroad

  • Categories: Art

  • Categories: Art

This book maps the interrelation between art, theatre, and opera in a time of dramatic historical change and political contestation in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Paris. Contributions to the volume trace the creative connections and clashes fostered by the sharing of new types of subject matter throughout the period.
