Most widely held works by Wallace Collection (London, England)
Queen Victoria and Thomas Sully by Carrie Rebora Barratt( Book )
4 editions published in 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Queen Victoria and Thomas Sully tells the story of the artist's complex and challenging sojourn abroad, in which he spent five months waiting for a sitting with Her Majesty. He kept expectations in check as he navigated his way through the corridors of British protocol and power, biding time by becoming an active participant in London's lively art scene. By drawing upon Victoria's and Sully's journals as well as contemporary letters, Carrie Barratt deftly arrives at exactly how Sully achieved his stunning portrait of Victoria, which took great liberties with conventions of state portraiture and was quickly acclaimed as a masterpiece." "This illustrated volume, which accompanies an exhibition originating at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and traveling to The Wallace Collection in London, illuminates not only the creation of this painting but the competitive process of making portraits in order to advance political power. Barratt includes an edited version of Sully's engrossing journal, the diary of a highly articulate and entrepreneurial American in London with his twenty-one-year-old daughter during the exciting coronation year. Both the exhibition and the book have been undertaken at this time to commemorate the anniversary of Queen Victoria's death in January 1901 - an event sure to garner considerable attention on both sides of the Atlantic."--Jacket

Boucher & Chardin : masters of modern manners ( Book )
3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book accompanies an exhibition examining the relationships between two works. When seen within the context of contemporary depictions of modish women and fashionable interiors, Boucher and Chardin's paintings acquire a new resonance, showing the rise of a new manner in French genre painting. This provides an opportunity to address undercurrent themes of social history such as the artists' attitudes to fashion, interior decoration and the consumption of tea - a pastime influenced by new trade links with China."--BOOK JACKET

Renaissance silver from the Schroder collection by Timothy Schroder( Book )
6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Schroder collection of Renaissance silver is among the most important to remain in private hands. Formed by the Anglo-German Schroder banking family between about 1870 and 1930, it includes outstandingly beautiful and valuable historic objects primarily of the sixteenth century from England, Germany, Italy and elsewhere. Some of these formerly belonged to princely collections such as the royal house of Hanover, the renowned Green Vault at Dresden or the Hollenzollern family. Others came from famous church treasuries, dispersed at the time of the French Revolution or during the early nineteenth-century secularization in Germany. The collection also includes objects from great civic holdings, such as a massive cup given by the city of Luneburg to the future George I of Britain and an intricately enamelled salt cellar sold by the city of Nuremberg in 1806." "Following a brief history by Deborah Lambert of the formation of the collection and the tastes by which it was governed, Timothy Schroder provides an illuminating tour of the world of the Renaissance goldsmith. exploring the original context both for the more magnificent and for the more mundane of these pieces, reproduced in this book in striking new photographs."--BOOK JACKET
