Overview
-

This second volume in the catalogue describes 134 paintings and 57 watercolors by French artists, representative of the taste of the official Salon between 1820 and 1860. The artists represented are Decamps, Delaroche, Meissonier, Vernet, Delacroix, Dupre, Gericault and Theodore Rousseau. The subjects include Eastern scenes, the Napoleonic legend and themes from the great romantic writers, such as Scott and Byron. An illustrated introductory essay examines the attitude to contemporary French painting of the 4th Marquess of Hertford, the chief collector of the works represented.
