National Gallery Pocket Collection
The National Gallery, London, home to celebrated works by Leonardo, Titian, Rembrandt, Turner, Van Eyck, Van Gogh, and many others, contains paintings that rank among the finest in the history of Western European art. This attractive little pocket collection reproduces many of these much-loved masterpieces along with a brief introduction to the collection.
The guide presents nearly 200 masterworks, arranged in four sections that reflect the layout of the gallery and the chronology of the art: Sainsbury Wing (1250–1500), West Wing (1500–1600), North Wing (1600–1700), and East Wing (1700–1900). Tracing the development of Western European art through the centuries, the book is an irresistible treasure for visitors or armchair travelers to the National Gallery.
