Hubert Robert || Margaret Morgan Grasselli & Yuriko Jackall

Dubbed “Robert des ruines” by Denis Diderot, Hubert Robert (1733-1808) was a painter of architectural scenes and imagined landscapes that combined contemporary views with ancient monuments in ways that are often unexpected. His romantic canvases are juxtaposed with lively sketches that have a fluidity of line that belies their age and this sumptuous volume does them all ample justice. Published to accompany an exhibition organised jointly by the National Gallery of Art in Washington and the Musée du Louvre in Paris, it is a thorough account of Robert’s often eventful life and his work.
