Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: In a time that celebrates beauty and money over so much else, this book is a lesson in elegance, grace, and style. It draws together for the first time in a single volume a sumptuous gallery of portraits dating from the early nineteenth century to World War II. Some are well-known, others unfamiliar, but all capture the spirit of their age, throwing the society that produced them into sharp and vivid relief. The Society Portrait offers entertaining anecdotes and intriguing insights into the personalities of both the artists and their patrons, providing a panorama of the settings in which the portraits were created, from French ch'teaux and English country houses to American mansions and Russian palaces. From David to Ingres, from Sargent to Boldini, from Dali to Warhol, The Society Portrait presents a dazzling array of works of art, and discusses them in their art historical and social context in the most elegant and entertaining manner. "Lavishly illustrated new book . . . ." ~ Vogue "An impressive and seminal work, The Society Portrait: From David To Warhol is a critically important and essential addition for personal, professional, and academic library History of Art reference collections and supplemental reading lists." ~ Library Bookwatch "This book, a masterful examination of society portraits, is studded with amazing reproductions from the early 1800s to the 20th-century's nouveau riche. It's captivating and insightful, a catalogue of the various periods' aspirations and societal mores." ~ Washington Post "Lush and well researched, it's sure to please art lovers." ~ Southern Accents " Society Portraits reminds us that while society shapes art, perhaps the mark of true greatness is when art creates a portrait of society." ~ Brillant Magazine.
