Masterpieces from the Scottish National Gallery catalogue

This book highlights fifty-five outstanding masterpieces from the National Galleries of Scotland, which were founded in 1850. The works range in date from Renaissance to the twentieth-century and include many of the most famous names in the history of Western art. Artists represented include Botticelli, El Greco, Velázquez, Rembrandt, Van Dyck, Watteau, Monet, Degas, Sargent, Picasso and Braque. In addition, the major figures of the national school, Ramsay, Raeburn and Wilkie, lend a distinctly Scottish flavour to this exceptional selection. All of the paintings are fully illustrated and described in this catalogue authored by the curatorial staff of the Galleries. Michael Clarke, director of the Scottish National Gallery, gives a unique insight into the history of the National Galleries of Scotland as he discusses the development of the Scottish national collection over the last 150 years.
