Gouthiere's Candelabras (Hardback)

Despatched in 2 business days.


This third volume in the Frick Diptych series offers fresh insight into a pair of candelabra that represent the pinnacle of luxury and taste in the years prior to the French Revolution. Vignon tells the fascinating story of these objects that are made of two small white vases with extraordinary gilt-bronze mounts by Pierre Gouthiere, the celebrated eighteenth-century French chaser and gilder. Vignon's essay is paired with a text by De Waal in which he examines what it is to make, own, and desire such complex objects

Edmund de Waal is a British artist, and author of The Hare with Amber Eyes (2010) and The White Road (2015). He is most well known for his large-scale installations of porcelain vessels and has received several awards and honours for his work. Charlotte Vignon is curator of Decorative Arts at The Frick Collection, as well as a visiting associate professor at the Bard Graduate Center, New York.
