When Anthony Blunt died in 1983, he was a man about whom almost anything could be - and was - said. As Surveyor of the Queen's Pictures and Director of the Courtauld Institute, Blunt's position was assured until his exposure in 1979 left his reputation in tatters. Miranda Carter's brilliantly insightful biography gives us a vivid portrait of a human paradox. Blunt's totally discrete lives, with their permanent contradictions, serve to remind us that there is no one key to any human being's identity: we are all a series of conflicting selves.

"Anthony Blunt: His Lives reveals the man behind the myths and rumours: aesthete, communist, homosexual, spy. As Surveyor of the Queen's Pictures and Director of the Courtauld Institute, Blunt's position as a stellar member of the Establishment had seemed utterly assured. But, in 1979, Margaret Thatcher exposed him as a former Soviet spy, and Blunt was stripped of his knighthood and became a figure of universal opprobrium."--BOOK JACKET.

The sixteenth and seventeenth centuries in France were an epoch of spectacular artistic activity, exemplified by the châteaux of the Loire valley, the palace of Versailles, the paintings of Poussin and Claude, and the sculpture of Coysevox, which echo the political and cultural importance of France and the "Sun King". Anthony Blunt presents major artists and their principal works chronologically, provides an overview of the main projects of the period and of the artistic personalities behind them, and clearly sets the historical context.
