By Katharine Baetjer

This is the first comprehensive publication on English, Scottish, Welsh, and Irish paintings and pastels by artists born before 1841 in the collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Ranging in date from the late sixteenth through the third quarter of the nineteenth century, the 140 works included are by such major artists as Peake, Lely, Hogarth, Reynolds, Gainsborough, Lawrence, Turner, Constable, and Burne-Jones. While the collection is particularly rich in portraiture, it also contains genre paintings and landscapes. Each painting is reproduced in color and carries full cataloguing data as well as a generous selection of comparative illustrations, among them pendants, related paintings, and prints.

This carefully argued reappraisal of Bronzinos drawings updates previous art history scholarship. Necessary for all 16th-century Italian art book collections.

The Art Newspaper

Baetjers catalogue entries are models of unpretentious scholarship and good sense the writing remains fresh and engaging.
