This handsome book presents 100 of the greatest works from the National Gallery, one of the richest collections of Western European paintings in the world.


Each picture, each by a different artist, is reproduced full-page and accompanied by a lively text. A wonderful and thoughtful gift for someone who loves books and art. These selected highlights introduce some of the most inspiring paintings ever made. Readers can dip in to explore individual paintings, or read from cover to cover for a full survey.


The painters featured here include some of the most famous names in European art (Duccio, van Eyck, Durer, Holbein, Botticelli, Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raphael, Titian, El Greco, Caravaggio, Velazquez, Rembrandt, Hogarth, Gainsborough, Goya, Constable, Turner, Manet, Monet, Renoir, Degas, Rousseau and Van Gogh) along with some of the most iconic paintings in the world, such as The Wilton Diptych, The Arnolfini Portrait, The Ambassadors and Sunflowers.



Louise Govier is MLA Museums Clore Leadership Fellow and Visitor Experience Manager at Mottisfont Abbey (National Trust). Formerly a university lecturer in art history and head of the Adult Learning team at the National Gallery, Dr Govier is also the author of Hogarth to Turner (2010).


NOTE: We've recently updated the cover of this book to the one pictured above. This new cover shows a detail from the painting, The Ambassadors by Hans Holbein. The cover you receive may vary.
