Описание: This book focuses exclusively on masterful drawings, watercolors, and pastels from 19th-century France.
Spanning the period from Romanticism to Neo-Impressionism, this beautiful book reveals the extraordinary richness, diversity, and inventiveness that fueled a remarkably creative period of French drawing — called »the paper century« in the opening essay. Brilliant drawings by Degas, Monet, Cezanne, Gauguin, and Seurat as well as by many of their peers allow for a close inspection of such key artistic movements as Realism, Impressionism, and the art of the Nabis and Symbolists. With some 150 color reproductions, this volume serves as a perfect introduction to the exquisite techniques and talents of artists whose work continues to inspire and amaze.

Описание: Numbering some 1,500 individual items and housed at over 80 historic properties across England, Wales and Northern Ireland, the collection of portrait miniatures cared for by the National Trust is considered to be one of the most significant in the world. As a whole, these precious works of art represent the highest standard of artistry and provide a history of miniature painting in Britain.

In this first comprehensive catalogue of the collection, Richard Walker and Alastair Laing will compile entries on every miniature in the National Trust's care. The catalogue is being prepared in volumes, divided by region. The first volume, covering Northern Ireland, was published in July 2003. The second volume will look at miniatures from the Trust's historic houses in the counties of Cornwall, Devon and Somerset, including those that recently came to the Trust as part of its acquisition of the magnificent Victorian mansion of Tyntesfield, south of Bristol. Each work is the subject of an individual entry detailing the artist, subject, description, provenance and other relevant data. There will also be an extensive bibliography and indices of artists, portraits and subjects.
