3 Kahng, Eik; Roland Michel, Marianne Anne Vallayer-Coster Painter to the Court of Marie-Antoinette
NEW - STILL IN PUBLISHERS PLASTIC. Anne Valleyer-Coster (1744-1818) was a French rococo-era painter, which is a light, elaborate and decorative style of art. Despite the negative reputation that still-life painting had at this time, Vallayer-Coster's highly developed skills, especially in the depiction of flowers, soon generated a great deal of attention from collectors and other artists. Her "precocious talent and the rave reviews" earned her the attention of the court, where Marie Antoinette took a particular interest in Vallayer-Coster's paintings. These are paintings that Vallayer-Coster did for the court of Marie Antoinette. 256 pages. 9 1/2" x 12 1/2" tall

4 McGregor, Sheila A Shared Vision: the Garman Ryan Collection At the New Art Gallery Walsall
1858940869 / 9781858940861; This is the first illustrated book on the Garman Ryan Collection, which was formed by two remarkable women and generously given to Walsall, England in 1974. The book includes information on Kathleen Garman's and Sally Ryan's lives. Together they formed a collection that is intimate, adventurous and eclectic, encompassing works by some of the greatest names in European art - Durer, Rembrandt, Constable, Van Gogh, Monet - as well as sculptures, vessels and votive objects from African, Asian, Oceanic and South American cultures. Now housed in a new purpose-built gallery in the centre of Walsall, not far from where Kathleen Garman spent her childhood, the Garman Ryan Collection represents in every sense "a shared vision. " Black and white, color paintings and photographs fill this book, along with text about the objects presented. The binding is a deep blue cloth; the jacket has a wrinkle at the bottom front.; 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall
