History painting knew an important renewal during 1860 and 1900. The development of modern art, from the "heroic decade" 1863-1874 until the turn of the 20th century, led however to a return to tradition. The 1870s marked a great renewal of history painting, through the works of numerous artists, including Puvis de Chavannes, Gustave Moreau, Alexandre Cabanel, William Bouguereau or Jean-Léon Gérôme.

From the study of sources and an important iconography (700 illustrations of works, most of them never published or little known), this book offers a complete overview of history painting from 1860 to 1900, accompanied by an exhaustive survey of these artists and of their works exhibited at the Salons (around 3000). It reveals the extent and contradictions of history painting, and enables to understand its mutations in the second half of the 19th century.
