National Gallery, London

Front Cover
Newsweek, 1969 - Art museums - 171 pages
England's national Gallery is renowned for what is probably the most balanced collection of paintings in the world. With the Keeper of the National Gallery as a guide through these pages, the reader will discover the superlative treasures of every period -- glories of the Italian Renaissance, great achievements of seventeenth-century French painting, Sir Robert Peel's collection of Dutch and Flemish works, the perfections of English art at its highest. This volume is one of an extraordinary series of art books presenting, as on a guided tour, the Great Museums of the World. Each presents the museum's most important and memorable works of art--all especially photographed for this series and all reproduced in superb full color. Every volume in this series contains an introduction by the Museum's Director, and a lucid text commenting on the historical and artistic significance of the works and their creators. -- Provided by publisher.
