GERHARDT KAPNER - The Patronising of Sculpture in the 19th Century. A Cultural-Historical Approach to Qualitative Judgements for Research

As part of his studies on the patronage of sculpture from the 18th to the 20th centuries, the author here deals more specifically with the 19th century. In the literature the quality of the sculptures of this century is often said to be poor. The lack of magnanimous patronage has often been said to be the cause of this. Both the quality of the works and the problem of patronage undergo critical analysis here. The possibility of a more nuanced and complex approach for further research is pointed out.
