Pierre Gouthière: Virtuoso Gilder at the French Court
Published in conjunction with a major exhibition, this is the first English-language monograph on Pierre Gouthière (1732–1813), as well as the first comprehensive study of his work since 1986. Included are essays on Gouthière’s life and work, a reevaluation of his style in the context of the development of Neoclassicism, and an exploration of his relationship with François-Joseph Bélanger, Claude-Nicolas Ledoux, Louis-Simon Boizot, and other great architects and sculptors of the period. A section of the catalogue is also devoted to the results of the technical study.
