About the Author

Harriet Stone is Professor of French and Comparative Literature at Washington University in St. Louis.


"This work is notable for its rich, sensitive, and perceptive analysis of the artistic works, and the thought-provoking parallels and contrasts developed throughout."
*Modern Language Review*

"Stone makes a persuasive claim by demonstrating how Dutch realistic painting gradually chipped away at the French monarchy’s hold on ideas.[…] This claim is bold enough to require extensive explanation, which Stone provides within a strong conceptual framework."
