A Concise History of French Painting
Frederick A. Praeger | 1971 | ISBN: N/A| English | 296 pages | PDF | 34 MB
This book is a history of French painting in a particular sense. When speak of "painting", we use this word to cover a multitude of techniques, used upon a variety of surfaces. The historian of Italian art, for example, must take into account frescoes as well as pictures, because so many of die greatest achievement Italian artists are to be found on the walls of palaces and churches. Though the historian of French art has to take decorative painting into account (as it was used, for example, at Versailles and Fontainebleau), and though he must occasionally glance at the considerable achievements of French illuminators, many of whom, in the late medieval period where men who also painted upon panel, easel-painting is what this book is about.
