- Over 50 exceptional landscape paintings from one of the world’s greatest private art collections are beautifully reproduced in full and in detail
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.
