DESCRIPTION

This attractive volume presents in detail 50 exceptional landscape paintings and vedute from one of the world's greatest private art collections – that of the Baroness Carmen Thyssen-Bornemisza, now housed within the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid. Showcasing masterpieces that date from the 17th to the 20th centuries, it is a sumptuous addition to Scala's prestigious Masterpieces series on the world's great art collections. It features: stunning reproductions of important examples of Renaissance and Rococo artists, including Simone Martini, Luca Giordano and Fragonard; 19th-century art from Casper David Friedrich to Corot; fine examples of the Impressionists and Post-Impressionists, with works by Degas, van Gogh, Monet and Renoir; a well-represented section on Fauvism, focusing of Braque, Picasso and Matisse; and intriguing and surprising examples of early 20th-century American landscape painting. This important book will bring this extraordinary collection to an even wider audience.
