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
