A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Franz Xaver Winterhalter (1803-73) was the outstanding court portraitist of mid-19th-century Europe. For Queen Victoria alone he painted more than 120 works. This lavish book is the first comprehensive survey of Winterhalter's work, with 246 illustrations, including 91 full-page colorplates.

From Library Journal:

In this volume, originally published in England in 1988, each beautifully written portrait is presented in the context of other portraits painted at the same European court. The portrait section is preceded by a full and scholarly overview of the painter and an outline chronology of his life in the context of European events, and it is followed by Aileen Ribeiro's fascinating essay, "Fashion in the Work of Winterhalter." The "catalog" that follows is a complete description of each portrait, with a full discussion of the painting's subject, size, and provenance, a description of the work, exhibitions in which it has appeared, and much other artistic and historic information. Also included is an annotated edition of Franz Wild's list of Winterhalter's paintings of 1894, an index to Wild's list, and an index of sitters and subjects. A small, charming section of drawings, watercolors, and prints completes the package. The volume is handsomely produced, with the highest quality reproductions. This work of scholarship and artistic merit deserves to be included in most public and academic libraries.
