This chapter analyses Baudelaire's ideas on the function of criticism, on naïveté and individualism, Romanticism, colourists and draughtsmen, memory, imagination, and his attitude towards individual painters such as Ingres and Courbet. It emphasizes the Salon de 1846, the most seminal and controversial of his art-critical works. It also highlights the evolution of his thinking through the Exposition universelle of 1855 to the Salon de 1859.
