Description
Anne Vallayer-Coster (17441818) was one of the most talented still-life painters of the French school. Today her paintings are located in some of the world's finest museums, and in her time they were admired and collected by many of her contemporaries, including Marie Antoinette, who became the artist's most important patron. This lavishly illustrated book, with 190 black and white figures and 100 color plates, presents a stunning array of the artist's still-life works; three royal portraits from the collection of Versailles and a hitherto unknown pastel of Marie-Antoinette are published here for the first time.

"Not only a visual delight but a first-rate contribution to the scholarship on women and art."Times Literary Supplement (London)
