Drawing Exhibitions in 18th-century France
(Doctoral dissertation, Harvard University)
This dissertation offers the first full account of early modern drawing exhibitions. It focuses on the relationship between drawings, the physical sites they occupied, and the intellectual spaces they revealed. Through both a quantitative and historical approach, the project examines how drawings straddled academic, commercial, courtly, and scientific spheres and the medium was ultimately embroiled in dual privatization and democratization of knowledge in eighteenth-century France.
