The group of about one hundred French bronzes in the Wallace Collection is justly considered one of the finest such collections in the world. Fifty-one of the best are featured in this book, the first in-depth study of the subject in English. They range in date from about 1570 to about 1840. Among them are the two most valuable items in the collection of Louis XIV, fine bronzes made for his predecessor, Louis XIII, and an exceptional portrait of his ancestor, Charles IX.
