Pressestimmen"A fresh and suggestive approach to rereading the history of modern painting through the lens of gender." -- Bookforum "An eminently readable and thought-provoking book about much, much more than just the painting reproduced on its dust-jacket." H-FRANCE "As a treasure trove of myths and images reflecting prurient male sexuality in high art, this study richly records a facet of nineteenth-century French cultural history." - Laurence M. Porter, Michigan State University
