"Fresh and stimulating ... clear, intelligent writing... a triumph"
(The Burlington Magazine, April 2005)
Newly revised and updated single-volume catalogue illustrating all 775 paintings in Wallace Collection.
The painting collection is most notable for its eighteenth-century French works but also includes Titian, Rembrandt, Rubens and Van Dyke. The Wallace Collection has been a source of inspiration ever since it opened to the public, it has acted as a catalyst for enthusiastic collectors and provided a rich source of research for art historians. The pictures in particular have long been regarded not only as one of the most important collections in the world, but also as one of the best loved.
Book includes a history of the Collection, reproductions in colour of all the paintings, entries on each painting, a brief biography on each artist, changed attributions, bibliography and numerical index.
