Languages of publication
The first study, which deal with works of the ‘other modernity’ of the French 19th century, deals with objects that, as multiply producible and stylistically eclectic objects, fell through the Modernist grid, although they correspond exactly to a definition of the avant-garde as formulated in the succession of Saint-Simon. The second study asks whether the iconography of “modern life”, in the sense of Charles Baudelaire’s “Le peintre de la vie moderne”, should not be added to the definition of modernity - against a limited formalist definition of modernity.
