This publication presents 227 paintings by Antoine Vestier (1740–1824) whose brilliant career is outlined in the first section of the volume. The essay also asserts his mastery of a range of techniques such as painting, drawing, or the art of miniature. A talented portraitist and violin player, Vestier was sought after by musicians who he painted along their instruments with equal exactitude.
