Description
Since it was originally published in France in 1911, the Bénéit Dictionary of Artists has been the unrivalled, indispensable work of reference for art historians, dealers, collectors and students, with key factual information about painters, sculptors, engravers and draughtsmen of all countries and schools, from antiquity to the present. It has grown steadily, and is now supported by a computerised database and a team of 150 editors, art historians and translators. This first English edition offers more than 170,000 entries providing biographical data, a general presentation of each artist's work, bibliographical references, museum listings, graphics (including artist signatures, monograms and stamps of sale) and auction records.
