- "This volume considers how ideas were made visible through the making of art and visual experiences occasioned by reception during the long eighteenth century. Contributors consider the approach taken by individual artists and the material formation of concepts in different contexts by asking new questions of artworks that are implicated by the need to see ideas in painted, sculpted, illustrated, designed, and built forms. The first four essays work with ideas about material objects and identity formation, while the last four essays address the intellectual work that can be expressed through or performed by objects. Making Ideas Visible in the Eighteenth Century thus introduces new visual materials and novel conceptual models into traditional accounts of the intellectual history of the Enlightenment."--Cover page 4.
