Pippin bargains a cosmopolitan exploration of Hegel’s place and its implications. He additionally exhibits that had Hegel recognized how the social associations of his day could finally fail to accomplish his personal model of real equality, a mutuality of popularity, he could have needed to discover a distinct, new position for paintings in modernity. After laying this foundation, Pippin is going directly to remove darkness from the scale of Hegel’s aesthetic strategy within the path-breaking works of Manet, the “grandfather of modernism,” drawing on paintings historians T. J. Clark and Michael Fried to take action. He concludes with a glance at Cézanne, the “father of modernism,” this time as his works remove darkness from the connection among Hegel and the thinker who could problem Hegel’s account of either modernity and art—Martin Heidegger.
