Pascal Adolphe Jean Dagnan Bouveret (1852 1929) was among a group of the most creative students of Jean Leon Gerome, the leading French academic painter of his day. A well established naturalist painter and an artist acknowledged worldwide during the latter half of the nineteenth century, Dagnan Bouveret used contemporary themes and techniques to modernize the academic tradition in an attempt to meet the aesthetic changes initiated by the Impressionists. Displaying real diversity, he created photographically accurate compositions inspired by daily life. His best known pieces within this genre were mesmerizing mystical religious compositions. Accolades at the 1900 Paris Exposition Universelle and induction into the French Institute not only assured the status of his work, they also furthered his position as the upholder of the academic tradition at a time when it was coming under renewed attack by the modernists. The Dahesh Museum in New York will offer the first monographic exhibition of Dagnan Bouveret's work from September through December 2002. This lavishly illustrated catalog, with both color and black and white illustrations, will accompany the exhibit. Against the Modern pays special attention to the evolution of this artist's work, and brings to the public gaze the real diversity, accessibility and surprising modernity that has made Dagnan Bouveret's work of lasting value.
