A classic, beautifully produced survey of a renowned collection

The National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, is renowned for its world-class collection of paintings representing seven centuries of American and European art. Now in the sixth printing since its original publication in 2004, this engaging and broad-ranging volume is a wonderful introduction to the collection and, by extension, to the history of Western painting. The book showcases 400 masterworks, arranged chronologically from a 13th-century Byzantine icon to contemporary works, and provides incisive commentary on each. It features paintings by Leonardo da Vinci, Rembrandt van Rijn, Johannes Vermeer, Francisco Goya, Winslow Homer, Paul C├ęzanne, Mary Cassatt, Barnett Newman, and other distinguished artists, all reproduced in gorgeous color.
