Reviews - What do customers think about Portrait Miniatures from the Daphne Foskett Coll.?
Needed more Sep 6, 2008
Basically this is just a catalog covering the works in Ms. Foskett's personal collection. It's fine as an addition to a collection of miniature art books but lacking content on the subject as a stand alone purchase. I did enjoy seeing a photo of this venerable scholar with one of her works.
