Item description for Theatres of Life: Drawings from the Rothschild Collection at Waddesdon Manor by Juliet Carey...
Waddesdon Manor was built and furnished by Ferdinand de Rothschild (1839-1898) to show off his works of art and to entertain the fashionable world. The drawings gathered in this book include works by major French draughtsmen of the eighteenth century, including Franois Boucher, Jean Honor Fragonard, Jean-Baptiste Greuze, Nicolas Lancret, Gabriel de Saint-Aubin, and Jean Baptiste Le Prince. The selection reflects the diversity of the Rothschild Collection and the overlapping preoccupations and unflagging curiosity of its creators. It encompasses observation and invention, academic learning and social comment, propaganda and reportage, and sheds light on the many different techniques and uses of drawing.
