Nicolas Maier of Munich, Germany forwarded this information about his new book on French medallic art.
I would like to inform you about the recent publication of a new book on medals.
The volume "French medallic art 1870-1940" examines the background to the revival of medallic art in France during the nineteenth century and investigates its development down to the 1930s. The wide range of subjects addressed by the artists is evident from the numerous illustrations. In addition, the book provides substantial insights into the medal society founded by Roger Marx, the Société des Amis de la Médaille française (1899-1920). Short biographies are given for a total of 73 artists who decisively influenced French medallic art during the periods of Art Nouveau, Symbolism, Naturalism and Art Deco.
The book is being published in English, German and French. For more information please visit
