First published in 1973 'The Absolute Bourgeois' rapidly became an art-historical classic. Along with its companion volume Image of the People - Gustave Courbet and the 1848 Revolution it shows how powerful art-historical writing can be when closely allied to a detailed study of the political and philosophical background of a period. Although it covers a short time span – the years immediately after the 1848 Revolution in France – it examines the painting and print-making of a handful of artists trying to come to terms with a changing political world.
