More About This Title Art Galleries of the World


This is an invaluable pocket guide to the art of the Western world, covering all the essential places to visit and setting the major works in the collections in their historical and social context. Helen Langdon takes us to the best-loved museums around the world, but also to a vast selection of minor but equally fascinating galleries, churches, villas, and houses, where she draws our attention to outstanding paintings and sculptures. Whether guiding us to the scuole of Venice or the avant-garde galleries of New York, whether to the National Gallery in London or to private collections in Rome, this fascinating work of reference is a must for every traveller and art lover.
