The French art collection at the Huntington Library is remarkable for its depth and breadth. This authoritative and beautifully illustrated book focuses on the nearly 300 objects in the collection, including its exceptional examples of furniture, clocks, gilt bronzes, gold snuff boxes, porcelain, tapestries, sculpture, and paintings.Organized by media, the book combines research on the social, cultural, and artistic settings of the period with detailed studies of the individual artworks. The essays and entries illuminate a broad range of issues concerning the production, consumption, and use of the objects in the collection and contribute to a nuanced understanding of French domestic and cultural life.
