Vestier

The catalogue on Antoine VESTIER (1740-1824) consists of 127 descriptions of works, preceded by a first section tracing the brilliant career of the artist. This study of his work emphasizes his skill in techniques as varied as painting, drawing, and the art of the miniature. A talented portraitist, this painter-violinist was much sought after by musicians, painting both performers and their instruments with the same scrupulous accuracy.
