Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This volume accompanies a lovely exhibition of French drawings traveling from the Frick Collection in New York to the National Gallery of Ontario, Ottowa. Organized by Sotheby's Wintermute with essays by Margaret Morgan Grasselli, Pierre Rosenberg, and Colin B. Bailey, the catalog examines the drawings of Watteau and followers such as Pater, Lancret, Boucher, and Portail. The texts cover issues such as problems of connoisseurship like stylistic attribution, the dissemination of the visual imagery of Watteau's drawings by the publication of a volume of engravings after his works, and the context of collecting drawings in 18th-century France. Beautiful color reproductions accompany the catalog of exhibited works, which also includes complete provenance and exhibition history and a bibliography for each drawing. Recommended for art libraries and academic libraries supporting strong art history programs.
