Corinne CHARLES and Claude VEUILLET, Chests and caskets from the Middle Ages in the collections of the Museum of Valais History, Sion. Published by Hier + Jetzt (Baden) and the Cantonal Museums of Valais (Sion), 2012, 2 vols., "Valère, Art & Histoire" series, n ° 3. The book has two volumes, put together in a box.
The collection of some forty prime pieces of furniture, kept at the Valère History Museum (Sion), is the subject of a historical, stylistic and archival study by Corinne Charles. Claude Veuillet, conservator and advisor to the "Monuments historiques", analyzes the furniture from the technical point of view (vol.1).
Volume 2 is a catalogue raisonné of this collection of the History Museum, studying each piece of furniture individually. Richly illustrated. At the end of the volume, the two authors shared their knowledge to write a glossary of furniture terms, more specific to construction and decorations of furniture, completed with sketches.
The Museum’s collection is the oldest set of furniture in the world, which has always been grouped and preserved on the same site for which it was made (the fortified church of Valère and the houses of the canons). The two authors worked about twenty years to present this first in-depth study of Romanesque furniture and other late medieval furniture.
Volume 1: 184 pages
Volume 2: 240 pages
