French artUser Review - Book Verdict
Perhaps because it was not in the vanguard of European art during the Renaissance, French art of this period has not garnered much appreciation or consideration outside of France. This translation of Chastel's magnificent overview should help redress the oversight in the English-speaking world. Against a background of the exigencies of royal, aristocratic, and ecclesiastical patronage, an extravagant universe of painting, sculpture, architecture, stained glass, tapestries, illuminated books, graphic arts, interior decoration, and garden design emerges here. While elaborating the persistence of the Gothic tradition and articulating the appearance of a distinctively French stylistic vision, Chastel, an editor and a professor at the Sorbonne, never allows us to lose sight of France's intricate, ongoing, and ever more significant Italianate relationship. Critical individuals, regional traditions, thematic peculiarities, and historical vicissitudes likewise receive their due. This volume combines a wealth of splendid reproductions with a text graced by acute perceptions, vast cultural scope, and a commanding scholarship easily borne. A vital acquisition for all collections, general and scholarly.--Robert Cahn, Fashion Inst. of Technology, New York

Chastel completes his exquisite art historical trilogy (French Art: The Renaissance, 1430-1620, LJ 12/95; French Art: Prehistory to the Middle Ages, Flammarion, 1994) with this volume on the visual arts of the reigns of Louis XIV, XV, and XVI. With an effortless command of both the material and its scholarship, he skillfully guides readers over the wonderfully wide-ranging achievements of French art of the 17th and 18th centuries. Not only are the monuments within the traditional universe of architecture and painting adeptly scrutinized; areas as diverse and significant as urban planning, garden and interior design, furniture, and the crafts also receive their due. Great and less-than-great works are succinctly evoked and ably placed within a context of period styles, function, and patronage. The significance of the salon, oral criticism, the Academy, and art theory is also ably suggested. All this is set within a flexible chronological embrace that sensibly unfolds the development of the national tradition. Although the volume is awash with beautiful color reproductions, its usefulness is somewhat vitiated by too numerous cited but unillustrated works. Still, this is highly recommended for all art collections.--Robert Cahn, Fashion Inst. of Technology, New York
