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.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
I was led to believe from the listing on Amazon that I was ordering the paperback version of the wonderful catalog of the 1999 Chardin Exhibition authored by Pierre Rosenberg and Helene Prigent on the 300th anniversary of Chardin's birth and published in hardcover by Yale University Press in 2000 (ISBN-13: 978-0300083484). The book I received was published by Nabu Press on November 26, 2010 (the day of my order) and is related to the 1999 Chardin Exhibition Catalog ONLY by the fact that both books bear the title "Chardin".
I received the book on December 6, 2010. It is a thin print-on-demand paperback photo-reproduction of Part 65 of "Masters in Art - A Series of Illustrated Monographs" published in May, 1905. It includes pages 191 to 210 of that monograph, plus some antique advertisements and 10 black and white poor-quality reproductions of Chardin paintings. Apparently these pages were copied from a book that at one time was owned the University of California Library.
Amazon's listing for this book is very misleading. When one clicks on the "Look Inside" link for this book, one sees Rosenberg's 1999 Chardin Exhibition catalog. Further, the Editorial Reviews are for the Rosenberg book, not this one. This is obviously a mistake caused by confusing the identical titles and created by the Amazon staff in representing the book. It needs to be corrected.
I am returning the Nabu Press book for a refund.
paintings, you'll love this.
