Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres, 1780 -1867, was a French Neoclassical painter, best known for his odalisques and portraits. He is considered an important precursor to modern art because of his expressive distortions of form and space.
Robert Rosenblum, 1927 2006, was a well known American art historian and curator known for his influential scholarship on European and American art of the mid-eighteenth to twentieth century.
The book is in excellent condition with mild wear to the dust cover. The inside is clean and in "like new" condition, other than a name (mine) written in the inside cover. I purchased this when I worked for the Smithsonian, and treat my fine art books with reverence. - but we need to down-size.
This book would be an excellent gift for a student of art or art history. It is a heavy book so media mail is the most economical choice for shipping.
