Regular price £12.00 Sale

This lavishly illustrated book charts the eighteenth- century French artist, Boucher's spectacular rise from poverty to the position of first painter to the King Louis XV. The book provides a detailed account of the artist's stylistic development and, by setting it within the historical and cultural context of its day, also provides fresh insights into Boucher's artistic achievement.

Special consideration is given to Boucher's paintings in the Wallace Collection, and the book includes an essay on the collection's Boucher-inspired decorative arts written by its former Director, Roaslind Savill.
