L’Histoire de la peinture en Italie : un sanctuaire pour l’heureux petit nombre

Abstract : In the Histoire de la peinture en Italie (1817), Stendhal does not describe the paintings. He depreciates the formal aspect of the art of painting because he assigns to it a symbolic fonction : painting is constructed spirituality. To speak about painting is to educate the reader’s sensibility in order for him to create a bond of sympathy with the soul of the artist  and of his figures. Painting becomes a sanctuary. To keep away the non believers, Stendhal elaborates a encrypted writing intended for the happy few.
