Merchants and luxury markets : the marchands merciers of eighteenth-century Paris by Carolyn Sargentson( Book )

14 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through a detailed examination of inventories and other previously unpublished records, Carolyn Sargentson offers a new perspective on the history of consumption, and she paints a fascinating picture of the luxury market during the decades that preceded the French Revolution. Her text raises important questions about the life-cycle of objects and the way that they were valued, the trading options of merchants who operated within narrow margins of credit and cashflow, and the relationship between the different groups who were jostling for position and advantage in a competitive environment. The chapters cover the range of the merciers' operations and are based on detailed case studies of families or aspects of trade in specialist markets. Subjects covered include the corporation of the merciers and their business practice, their role in design, imported goods and European imitations, novelty and innovation, the merciers' shops and the magasins anglais
French art of the eighteenth century at the Huntington by Shelley M Bennett( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book is notable as a study of the art from one culture as represented in a variety of media. Arranged in sections by media, it presents essays delineating the social, cultural, and artistic settings of the period and introducing the detailed studies of individual art works. These interconnected studies provided the basis for an examination of a broad range of issues concerning production and consumption and the use of these objects in the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries

Baroque, 1620-1800 : style in the age of magnificence by Reinier Baarsen( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Baroque: Style in the Age of Magnificence offers a new approach to a style that has sometimes been misunderstood. Broadening the traditional view, this book demonstrates for the first time how the style occurs in art, in architecture and in design and the applied arts, not only throughout Europe but all over the world from Goa and the Philippines in the east to Central and South America in the west." "Illustrated with carefully selected and rarely seen objects from public and private collections, the book explores the contexts for the development of the Baroque style, its ornamental language and the key theme of performance and the visual arts. Attractive feature spreads highlight a variety of topics, including opera, fireworks and religious rituals, and investigate churches and palaces as showcases for the pomp and splendour of Baroque art."--Jacket
