Experience the life of seventeenth-century France through close-up views of life during the reign of Louis XIII in this handsomely produced exhibition catalogue. An astonishing amount of visual documentation of this period was captured in prints, yet many of them are rare and the artists little known. French Prints from the Age of the Musketeers (Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, October 21, 1998 - January 10, 1999) provides a picture of the diversity of printmaking in France between 1610 and 1660. It includes 126 works by 50 printmakers arranged by topic - genre, current events, landscapes, portraits, religious subjects and allegories. Among the painter-etchers are Jacques Bellange, Claude Lorrain, Laurent de La Hyre and Simon Vouet, while graphic artists include Jacques Callot and Abraham Bosse. Less familiar image makers such as Richelieu's architect Jacques Lemercier, portraitists Jean Morin and Robert Nanteuil and the inventive Pierre Brebiette will be a revelation to the American public. There is no other book in the English language as extensive on this subject.
