Book Description:
Anne Vallayer Coster (1744 1818) was one of the most talented still life painters of the French school. Her exquisite paintings, today located in some of the world's finest museums, were admired and collected by many of her contemporaries, including Marie Antoinette, who became the artist's most important patron. This lavishly illustrated book, the first devoted to Vallayer Coster in over 30 years, presents a stunning array of the artist's still life works, many of which have never before been reproduced in color. Recently rediscovered works, including three royal portraits from the collection of Versailles and a hitherto unknown pastel of Marie Antoinette, are published here for the first time. The authors draw on the most current research to examine Vallayer Coster's relationship with landscape painter Joseph Vernet; her response to her immediate predecessor, still life painter Jean Sim on Chardin; her role with contemporary collectors of her art; and her place in the larger context of the eighteenth century art world. The book also includes new archival and conservation findings and an illustrated index of extant paintings by Vallayer Coster.
