520    "The dominant visual language of European painting from 
       the Renaissance to the nineteenth century, history 
       paintings were formidable in their monumental scale, 
       ambitious moral lessons, and intricate narratives. With 
       the rise of modernist avant-gardes, the genre receded from
       the forefront of artistic production into the realm of 
       nostalgia. Yet history painting cast a shadow that would 
       subtly colour even the works that sought to displace it. 
       Exploring the resilience of this distinctive mode of 
       visual representation, What Was History Painting and What 
       Is It Now? brings together an internationally 
       distinguished group of scholars to trace the endurance, 
       adaptation, and mutation of history painting. These 
       studies offer a reexamination of the fortunes of the genre
       from North America to Europe and Africa. Organized around 
       illuminating themes, the book explores the creation of an 
       audience attuned to the genre's didactic aims, the entry 
       of history painting into the marketplace of commercial art
       and attractions, and the reimagination of the mode in 
       response to the edicts of modern and contemporary art. 
       Spanning the full range and diversity of history painting,
       this collection is a broad reconsideration of the 
       tradition and the vibrant ways in which it resonates 
       through the art of the present."--|cProvided by publisher.
