Looking and Listening in Nineteenth-Century France
Audiences in different eras look at art and listen to music in dramatically different ways. During the nineteenth century, the habits and fashions associated with looking and listening changed rapidly.
Examining themes of attention and the place of looking and listening in the art of nineteenth-century France, this catalogue features two principal essays by the exhibition curators, Martha Ward, Associate Professor and Chair of the Art History Department at the University of Chicago, and Anne Leonard, Smart Museum Curator and Mellon Program Coordinator. It also includes contributions by Josephine Landback, Julia Langbein, Allison Morehead, Elayne Oliphant, Eleanor Rivera, and Michael Tymkiw—all University of Chicago students who participated in the Looking and Listening course.
The catalogue is accompanied by a CD compilation of related music, including two bonus tracks of early recordings.
Martha Ward and Anne Leonard with contributions from Josephine Landback, Julia Langbein, Allison Morehead, Elayne Oliphant, Eleanor Rivera, and Michael Tymkiw.
