Death of the Hero

£9.99

Product description

Death of the Hero : French Painting from David to Delacroix.

The period of French painting between about 1785 and 1825 has practically nothing in book-form about it in English, and yet it is the period that lays the bases from which modern art largely proceeds. The story of David and his students or followers is also engrossingly dramatic.

Hardback, 185pp, published 1960, pages and cloth boards in very good condition, but dust-jacket has small tears. Widely illustrated with colour plates, and black and white photographs.
