Book Project "Art, Auctions, and Public Spectacle in Nineteenth-Century Paris"

This application requests funding through the NEH Summer Stipend Program 2009 in order to conduct research for a planned book entitled "Art, Auctions, and Public Spectacle in Nineteenth-Century Paris." Research will focus on historic Parisian auction house catalogs and corresponding pricing information, which will be used to extrapolate statistical information documenting major trends and developments in the European art market over the course of the century. These materials can only be consulted in specialized collections and archives located in Paris, London, and The Hague, thus requiring travel funds and an extended period of study in situ in order to bring the project to fruition. The proposed time frame for undertaking this research is the months of June and July 2009.
