"A book for everyone interested in French portraiture, Orientalist and Salon painting"—Alexander Adams, Cassone

About the Book

The Tanenbaum gift of over two hundred works of internationally significant nineteenth-century European art is one of the most important art donations to a Canadian gallery. A diverse and
original collection, it features works by Léon Bonnat, Frank Brangwyn, Charles Cordier, Gustave Doré, Pierre Puvis de Chavannes, Käthe Kollwitz, Henry Raeburn, Joaquín Sorolla, James  Tissot, and Anders Zorn.

This beautifully illustrated volume presents seventy-five of the key highlights by fifty-nine international artists. It offers insight into a broad range of artistic production in the nineteenth
century, encompassing painting, sculpture, drawing, and printmaking. Author Alison McQueen provides an in-depth analysis of the social and historical context of each work, and full-colour images
illuminate her close study of the aesthetics of every piece. The artwork entries are accompanied by provenance, exhibition history, and bibliography.

This book challenges many lasting misconceptions about nineteenth-century art. It includes a preface by collectors Joey and Toby Tanenbaum and an introductory essay on the collection by Alison McQueen.
