Edited by Javier Arnaldo. Introduction by Carmen Thyssen-Bornemisza. Foreword by Thomas Llorens.
The private art collection of Mrs. Carmen Thyssen-Bornemisza is considered one of the most important in the world. The Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum has published these two volumes to accompany the permanent exhibition of the International Collection, which includes 345 works of art by Brueghel, de Hooch, Van Goyen, Canaletto, Fragonard, Constable, Corot, Pissarro, Sisley, Degas, Van Gogh, Monet, Gauguin, Braque, Kandinsky, Nolde, Heckel, Hopper, Picasso, Juan Gris and others. Also included in two the volumes is a selection of works of art from a number of important nineteenth-century American artists such as Head, Bierstadt, Church, and Bricher. Provided here is a fully documented analysis of the collection, including color illustrations and a summary profile for each work of art, as well as research analyses written by 87 international experts and field specialists. There is an introduction to each chapter written by Javier Arnaldo--the publisher of these volumes, and co-curator at the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum. Volume 1 focuses on art from the thirteenth to nineteenth centuries, while Volume 2 looks at art of the ninteenth and twentieth centuries. Combined, these two books feature 960 pages and some 270 beautifully-reproduced full-color images.
