5.0 out of 5 stars Essential and enjoyable, 6 Nov 2010
By 
This review is from: Chardin (Hardcover)
This exhibition catalogue published in 2000 is still an essential resource on the work of Chardin.

It provides information about individual works selected for display as old-fashion catalogues used to do, with a comprehensive discussion, provenance, exhibition history, bibliography and related works.

The numerous plates figuring all exhibited works makes this catalogue a very enjoyable publication since the quality of reproduction and printing is very good.

5.0 out of 5 stars brief but effective, 26 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted a brief survey of Chardin's life and works, this was sufficient for my purposes, I thought the images reproduced well.
Well written and researched, a warm report.
