Alexandre: Fan-Maker to the Courts of Europe

£25.00 £10.00

by Hélène Alexander

This lavishly illustrated publication focuses upon the oeuvre of celebrated fan maker, Félix Alexandre (b.1823).  Alexandre was active in an age when the art of fan-making reached a glorious apogee, and this publication supports an exhibition that opened in September 2011 at The Fan Museum, London. Alexandre: Fan-Maker to the Courts of Europe, brought together, for the first time, an array of exquisite fans from the maison of Alexandre, including loans from Royal Collections and some of Europe’s most prestigious collectors.
