Alexander Roslin (svensk)
By Magnus Olausson (ed.), Eva-Lena Karlsson (ed.)
Alexander Roslin is possibly the most internationally renowned Swedish artist ever. Technical ingenuity, sensitivity to trends, and good social skills are a few of the secrets behind his success. In many of his best portraits Roslin manages to capture the extravagant taste in fashion of the time, along with the personality of his models. The catalogue's abundance of essays and reproductions not only gives an extensive presentation of the artist's works but also puts them in ideological and cultural perspective. This is the first book to present Alexander Roslin to an international readership in English.
