Being a catalogue of the works of a French Romantic painter who is not as well-known as he deserves to be. The book is well-produced, but the emphasis is definitely on the catalogue and associated biolgraphical information such as chronologies rather than illustrations, nor is there a great deal of critical insight. Thus the book is not one for browsers.
