On the basis of extensive archival research in public and private collections, Bertrand du Vignaud has renewed this regrettably forgotten family of Huguenot art collectors to its rightful place.

With its rich illustrations and largely unpublished iconography, this book invites the reader on a journey through Europe in the 18th and 19th centuries and opens a new chapter for this famous family, with contemporary creations in their ancestral home in Geneva.
