Résumé :

The beautiful and authoritative book focuses on the fine collection of French art works at The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens. The Huntington is well know for its distinguished holdings of late eighteenth-century Bristish art. As remarkable in depth and breadth and long overdue for reevaluation, the rich French art collections comprise exceptional furniture, clocks, gilt bronzes, composite objects, gold boxes, porcelain, tapestries, sculpture, and paintings.

The books is notable as a study of the art form one culture as represented in a variety of media. Arranged in sections by media, it presents essays delineating the social, cultural, and artistic settings of the period and introducing the detailed studies of individual art works. These inter-connected studies provide the basis for an examination of a broad range of issues concerning production and consumption and the use of these objects in the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries. The themes that emerge from the study of The Huntington collection contribute to a nuanced understanding of French eighteenth-century domestic and cultural life and the changing interpretations and continued popularity of French art among later collectors in America.
