Book Description Yale Univ. Pr, New Haven, CT, 2002. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. Illustrated by Vallayer-Coster, Anne (illustrator). NEW - STILL IN PUBLISHERS PLASTIC. Anne Valleyer-Coster (1744-1818) was a French rococo-era painter, which is a light, elaborate and decorative style of art. Despite the negative reputation that still-life painting had at this time, Vallayer-Coster's highly developed skills, especially in the depiction of flowers, soon generated a great deal of attention from collectors and other artists. Her "precocious talent and the rave reviews" earned her the attention of the court, where Marie Antoinette took a particular interest in Vallayer-Coster's paintings. These are paintings that Vallayer-Coster did for the court of Marie Antoinette. 256 pages. 9 1/2" x 12 1/2" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 003409

Book Description Dallas Museum of Art June 2002, 2002. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Anne Vallayer-Coster (1744-1818) was one of the most talented still-life painters of the French school. Her exquisite paintings, today located in some of the world's finest museums, were admired and collected by many of her contemporaries, including Marie Antoinette, who became the artist's most important patron. This lavishly illustrated book, the first devoted to Vallayer-Coster in over 30 years, presents a stunning array of the artist's still-life works, many of which have never before been reproduced in color. Recently rediscovered works, including three royal portraits from the collection of Versailles and a hitherto unknown pastel of Marie Antoinette, are published here for the first time. The authors draw on the most current research to examine Vallayer-Coster's relationship with landscape painter Joseph Vernet; her response to her immediate predecessor, still-life painter Jean-Simeon Chardin; her role with contemporary collectors of her art; and her place in the larger context of the eighteenth-century art world. The book also includes new archival and conservation findings and an illustrated index of extant paintings by Vallayer-Coster. Bookseller Inventory # 20110123124805
