Description:
The Arts of Living explores the breadth, depth and beauty of the V&A's seventeenth- and eighteenth-century collections.

Written by a team of experts, this book provides an overview of over two centuries of cultural development and artistic endeavour. The unparalleled range of the V&A's collection means that masterpieces such as the Serilly Cabinet and Bernini's terracotta for the Blessed Ludovica Albertoni can be contextualized alongside discussions of Louis XIV's patronage and the seventeenth-century Dutch interior. Many works will be shown for the first time, including Count Bruhl's Meissen fountain and actor David Garrick's tea service.
