Inhaltsangabe: "Erika Langmuir has the rare knack of coming at pictures both with spontaneous eyes and with great erudition lightly worn."
Neil MacGregor, Director, The British Museum
"The finest book of its kind, however different in scope and intent, since Gombrich's The Story of Art"
Bryan Robertson, The Guardian
"One of the best guides to a collection I have seen ... deserves a place in all good art sections." The Bookseller
The Companion Guide introduces art lovers to one of the richest and most representative collections of Western European paintings in the world, including famous works by the greatest painters - Piero della Francesca, Titian, Rembrandt, Rubens, Velazquez, Ingres, Degas and many others - and masterpieces by less familiar artists.
The Companion Guide has sold almost 200,000 copies worldwide since it was first published in 1994. A second edition, containing new entries and updates, was published in 1998. For this new edition of the National Gallery's best-selling publication the book has been completely redesigned with a new cover, while new origination of all illustrations will ensure high quality reproductions. The text has been completely revised and updated to include new acquisitions and to take account of the latest scholarship from the Gallery. The new editions added to the back of the 1998 edition have now been integrated into the main text, along with seven new entires on the following high-profile acquisitions: Zubaran, A Cup of Water and a Rose on a Silver Plate. Stubbs, Whistlejacket. Cimabue, The Virgin and Child Enthroned with Two Angels. Beuckelaer, The Four Elements. Brouwer, Tavern Scene. Raeburn, The Archers. Akseli Gallen-Kalela, Lake Keitele. Raphael's Madonna of the Pinks, if the painting remains at the National Gallery.
* Completely updated and redesigned, with full colour illustrations throughout.
* Provides a comprehensive and highly readable guide to the history of western art through the paintings in the National Gallery.
* The new revised and expanded edition will be published in Spring 2004 in time for the opening of the Gallery's East Wing entrance, so there will be significant press coverage of this event.
This latest edition includes a new foreword from Charles Saumerez-Smith, Director of the National Gallery, London.
