Jules Verne
Alternate English Titles:

Plot Synopsis: 

Art criticism, providing a review of the Paris Salon of that year. (Zvi Har El site: Bibliographies - Essays)

One of the major discoveries in the first edition of the biography (by Willam Butcher) was Verne’s contribution to art criticism. He wrote seven substantial essays about the 1857 Universal Exposition of Fine Arts, collected and edited for the first time by Butcher as Salon de 1857 [Jules Verne, Salon de 1857. Acadien, 2008, edited by William Butcher]. The revised edition (of the Biography) provides additional detail and extracts from letters: for example, there is evidence that Verne performed some editorial duties for the Revue des beaux-arts in addition to the essays he wrote. Butcher finds a correspondence between Verne’s approach to art and the way he assembles research for his novels. - Tad Davis - Verniana 12 (2020-2022)
