Jean-Jacques Rousseau et les arts

Guilhem Scherf

Collection "Catalogues d'exposition"

The rediscovery of the man and the writer through his close relationship to art.
The themes of his relationship to classical art or to books and illustration, and his taste for music and nature are explored in depth.

Feuilleter l’ouvrage

The close and ambiguous relationship of Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712–1778) to the arts—which, according to him, went hand in hand with luxury and moral corruption (“Discourse on the Sciences and Arts”)—reveal interesting aspects of his personality, works, and era. This catalogue, published on the occasion of the exhibition Rousseau et les arts at the Panthéon, is thus a rediscovery of the man and the writer, the tercentenary of whose birth is being celebrated in 2012.

The book, edited by Guilhem Scherf, features contributions from a dozen specialists and eminent Rousseauists. The first section explores various exciting and little-known themes, including Rousseau’s passion for music, his relationship to his own image, and his collaboration on the illustration of his works. The second section is dedicated to the fame of the author, the monuments raised in his memory, and the transfer of his ashes to the Panthéon.
