Presents one of the world's largest and richest collections of European art, encompassing 18th and 19th century France, the Dutch and Flemish Baroque, the Italian Renaissance, the great Spaniards from El Greco to Goya and Velazquez, the rise of modernism in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and other paintings from England, Sweden, Switzerland, Belgium, and even the US. Art historian Eisler (NYU) has selected the paintings (630 color reproductions) and structured his text from the standpoint of subject matter, arranging the works in groups that include landscapes, Golden Ages (subjects from mythology, ancient history, allegory) religious subjects, portraiture, genre subjects, and interior and still-life paintings. A stunning collection beautifully presented. 9<1/2>x11<1/2> . Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
