Portraits by Ingres

£14.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Published to accompany an international exhibition, this is a study of the portraits by the French painter Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres. They were created over the first seven decades of the 19th century and were described by a critic in 1855 as "the most faithful image of our epoch". The book brings together a wide range of original-source materials, including letters, critical reviews, biographical documents and photographs. The major portraits are discussed and reproduced, and more than 100 portrait drawings and many preparatory studies are also included.
Front and back covers show crease marks and dog ears to top and bottom corners. There are grease marks to page edges and the binding is starting to loosen at the front and the back. However, the copy is sound.
