Lyotard met Jacques Monory in 1972, and the text on him published at that time was the first that Lyotard dedicated to contemporary art since Discourse, Figure. Lyotard's interest in the plastic arts thus fits fully within the setting of his political preoccupations. The artist-protagonist stages the recurring motifs that fascinate Lyotard: the scene of the crime, the revolver, the woman, the victim, glaciers, deserts, stars. The atmosphere of the essays on Monory is "Californian." Monory's imaginary repertoire goes well beyond the masters of modernity and is in line rather with a "modern contemporary surrealism." Both Lyotard and Monory live the “dilemma of Americanization,” the America represented by cinema, fashion, novels, music. It is in this atmosphere that Lyotard and Monory will finally evoke their supreme experience of difference: desire and fear, exultation and a profound malaise. The plastic universe of Monory and the aesthetic meditations of Lyotard are in perfect symbiosis. Sarah Wilson's epilogue thoroughly outlines both the history of a friendship and, at the same time, the intellectual and artistic climate of the 1970s.

The Paris of the 1860s and 1870s was supposedly a brand-new city, equipped with boulevards, cafés, parks, and suburban pleasure grounds--the birthplace of those habits of commerce and leisure that constitute "modern life." Questioning those who view Impressionism solely in terms of artistic technique, T. J. Clark describes the painting of Manet, Degas, Seurat, and others as an attempt to give form to that modernity and seek out its typical representatives--be they bar-maids, boaters, prostitutes, sightseers, or petits bourgeois lunching on the grass. The central question of The Painting of Modern Life is this: did modern painting as it came into being celebrate the consumer-oriented culture of the Paris of Napoleon III, or open it to critical scrutiny? The revised edition of this classic book includes a new preface by the author.

De marchande d'oranges à maîtresse du roi Charles II d'Angleterre. Londres, XVIIe siècle. Pour éviter de suivre le destin de sa sœur devenue prostituée, Ellen " Nell " Gwyn devient marchande d'oranges au théâtre royal de Covent Garden. Rapidement, les propriétaires du lieu remarquent son charme et sa finesse d'esprit, et lui offrent une place dans la compagnie. Dès lors, elle n'aura de cesse de grimper les échelons, de figurante à actrice principale. Bientôt, c'est l'attention du roi lui-même qu'elle retient. Charles II a la réputation d'être un souverain libertin, mais son cœur ne résiste pas longtemps à la personnalité flamboyante de Nell. Cependant, la cour voit d'un mauvais œil l'arrivée de cette femme moderne qui bouleverse les règles établies... Une héroïne captivante qui a réellement existé : féministe avant l'heure, Nell a marqué son époque en usant de son influence auprès du roi pour accorder plus de droits aux femmes.
