This beautifully illustrated book showcases 100 paintings from the vast collections of the National Trust – one of the largest, most significant holdings of fine art in the world.
Spanning the 14th to the 20th centuries, 100 Paintings from the Collections of the National Trust includes works by some of the most renowned European artists of all time including Titian, El Greco, Holbein, Rubens, Van Dyck, Rembrandt, Velázquez, Gainsborough, Reynolds, Canaletto, Hogarth, Stubbs, Angelica Kauffman, Edward Burne-Jones, James Tissot, Max Ernst, Vanessa Bell, Barbara Hepworth and Stanley Spencer, to name but a few.
Selected by National Trust curators from over 13,000 works, the featured paintings are arranged chronologically, each accompanied by an illuminating, easy-to-read caption. The book concludes with a handy glossary of terms and a list of National Trust properties that house important paintings.
