Maurice Quentin De La Tour: Study of La Tour, 1704-88, the Pastel Portraitist

£16.99

Product description

Maurice Quentin de la Tour (1704-88) was one of the finest pastel portraitists of all time. Moreover he has a double significance for he recorded in brilliant style, for posterity, very many of his famous contemporaries including Crebillon, Rousseau, La Pompadour, Voltaire and numerous royal figures. This well-illustrated study is the first work to be published in Britain on this important figure in art history and it is written by an eminent art historian who is himself an acknowledged master of the pastel medium. Thus "Maurice Quentin de La Tour" provides both a vital source of reference for the student and, at the same time, is an illustrated work that will delight all serious lovers of art.

some wear to unclipped dust jacket now protected by removable plastic cover, page edges slightly grubby, nice clean copy inside, colour plates all present, plate vii has a couple of slight marks not affecting the picture or text
