Largillierre

This book marks the beginning of a second series in the collection "L'Art français". In this smaller size, the volume is intended for a larger public, offering the same rigorous analysis of the work, but proposing fewer works in the catalogue. This new orientation is particularly well adapted to a painter like Nicolas de LARGILLIERRE (1656-1746), a remarkable artist whose abundant and varied works oblige a selection of texts and works. "He composed with the greatest ease and never was there a greater practitioner," said the collector Pierre Mariette. In 1753, in the second volume of his Abécédaire, this latter reported that the portraits done by the artist's hand numbered 1,600.
