Or as Baxandall puts it, ‘offered by various versions of Ideology’ (1985a: viii) ? offer nothing to his project. If one is addressing ‘pictures’, not ‘social history’, and if one is ‘doing inferential criticism from other than economic determinist convictions’, there is little ‘critical yield’ to be derived from exploring the broader social contexts of production of, say, Picasso’s Portrait of Kahnweiler or Braque’s The Portuguese, whether the ‘class social differences between Picasso and Braque’, the institutional isomorphisms between art galleries and other retail organizations in early 20th-century Paris, ‘or the socio-economic base of Gertrude Stein’ (1985a: 57).
My attempt to draw out the sociological dimensions of Baxandall’s approach has drawn its vocabulary from Nikos Mouzelis’s (1995) account of the complementary relationship between institutional analysis of sociocultural systems (along lines developed in the work of Talcott Parsons), and the figurational analysis of interactions between groups and individuals in the context of such systemic institutional frameworks (based on the structural sociologies of Norbert Elias or Max Weber, for example), and also from William Sewell’s account of the ‘logics of history’ (2005).
In close comparison with Baxandall’s studies illustrates certain respects in which his work, far from having been simply absorbed and superseded, still has lessons to offer us today. The final section of the article draws on Baxandall’s Limewood Sculptors of Renaissance Germany (1980) ? a work surprisingly overlooked by most sociologists of art ? to argue that Baxandall develops an ‘institutional’ approach which has the potential coherently to integrate dimensions of analysis currently split across competing paradigms into a fully historical sociology of art.
