Treasures from Budapest: European Masterpieces from Leonardo to Schiele

£40.00

Product description

288pp. 2010. New.


This book showcases over 200 works from the Museum of Fine Arts in Budapest, one of Europe's finest but lesserknown art collections. Exceptional Italian pieces include a fourteenth-century panel painting by Maso di Banco, the only bronze sculpture associated with Leonardo da Vinci and Raphael's Esterhazy Madonna, while the Northern European schools are represented by Lucas Cranach, Rubens and Rembrandt, and the French by Poussin, Claude and Laurent de la Hyre. Highlights from the museum's superb collection of works on paper include two studies by Leonardo for his fresco of the Battle of Anghiari, fine drawings by Du rer and Altdorfer, and figure studies by Tiepolo and Watteau. Twentieth-century masterpieces include works by Monet, Chagall, Picasso and Schiele. With texts by eminent scholars exploring the history of the museum and entries on each work, many of which present new research, this book is an important document of an outstanding collection.
