Oxford University Studies in the Enlightenment
Charles-Joseph Natoire and the Académie de France in Rome
a re-evaluation

Volume: Oxford University Studies in the Enlightenment 2015:04
Series editor: Jonathan Mallinson
Author: Reed Benhamou


REVIEW(S): 
‘Benhamou’s book […] offer[s] a riveting account of [Natoire’s] downfall and a perceptive analysis of the difficulties and frustrations that he, like his predecessors, encountered as director’ […] It offers a much needed corrective and makes a convincing case for restoring Natoire’s tarnished reputation [...] Benhamou’s meticulously researched, extensively documented study attests to the fundamental value of archival research’.
