This volume presents colorplates of 142 of the Albright-Knox Art Gallery's greatest treasures, each accompanied by a biography of the artist and an essay about the work. Beginning with Impressionism, it also includes every successive movement and every great master of the modern era, many represented by iconic masterpieces. Masterworks at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery thus represents a superb, comprehensive survey of modern and contemporary art.
