Description:
1898 HUGE FOLIO 1ed Famous French ART Salon Steel Engravings Painting Beaux-Arts
At the end of the 19th-century, the Goupil company published one of the most remarkable collections of art known simply as 'The Salon'. Beginning in 1889, this recurring work features the artwork of notable sculptors and painters including artists from the Societe Nationale des Beaux-Arts.
This 1898 English edition was collected by Antonin Proust and translated into English by Henry Bacon. The one hundred steel engravings throughout this book are highly desirable and are often extracted to be displayed by themselves; however, this work is fully intact, not lacking any plate. (See photos for a full list of included artists.)
