Description

By Oleg Yakovlevich Neverov and Dmitry Pavlovich Alexinsky, foreword by Dr. Boris Piotrovsky

This is the definitive publication celebrating the collections of the Hermitage Museum. For nearly 250 years, the State Hermitage has been one of Europe's most palatial museums. It encompasses more than three million works of art and artifacts displayed within a spectacular architectural ensemble, the heart of which is the famed Winter Palace. The two volumes of The Hermitage Collections capture the masterpieces and discuss the history that make this world-famous institution a cultural destination and a global treasure. Many of its rarely reproduced works are included in these two volumes, such as Michelangelo's Crouching Boy, Leonardo da Vinci's Madonna with a Flower (The Benois Madonna), and Titian's Saint Sebastian. The Hermitage collections were developed beginning in 1764 by Catherine the Great, Empress of Russia. Today, the Hermitage constitutes one of the great art museums of the world.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to shop the Met's professional on-line site The Heritage two volume art book was a fine purchase for a holiday gift for my sister, as she is a world travel devotee.  The book was highlighted as the Met's suggested purchase.  Gift wrapping was offered and taken.  The amazement was a percentage reduction in the price if purchase made within a time limit.  Lovely.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I was very unhappy with this purchase. The pages were not separated. I tried to separate the pages and the pages tore. Very inferior product. I was so disappointed. I gave this as a gift to my husband for Xmas. Poor quality.
