“Portraits by Ingres: Image of an Epoch, published in conjunction with an exhibition at The National Gallery, London, the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, is the first comprehensive study of these nineteenth-century masterpieces.” “This volume unites texts by American and European scholars with the most complete visual presentation ever of Ingres’s portraits. The biographical essays and the catalogue entries provide fresh insights based on examination and interpretation of original correspondence, contemporary reviews, and newly discovered documents; supplementing these are an introduction that discusses Ingres’s sources of inspiration, essays on the critical reception of the portraits and on the artist’s use of assistants, and a detailed illustrated chronology.”- the dustjacket.
