This week on FAD magazine we take a  week-long look at art gifts for Christmas, We have asked some of our writers and art gallery friends to choose some great gifts, below are the choices of Shapero.

1 Renowned 20th C illustrator George Barbier’s  Les Liaisons Dangereuses, with incredible art deco illustrations 

Renowned 20th C illustrator George Barbier’s Les Liaisons Dangereuses, with incredible art deco illustrations

That Barbier would turn his attention to Les Liaisons Dangereuses‘ great novel of sexual intrigue was inevitable; he was even prepared to illustrate the text rather than use it as a point of departure for his own decorative compositions, as in other works. Though he did not neglect the opportunities for decorative treatment of setting and costume that the novel provided, he stuck to the narrative and presented all the big scenes in its intricate plot. In doing so, Barbier gives us the finest illustrations of the novel since Monnet and Gérard’s 1796 edition. £2000 BUY here
