This opulent volume features large-format plates of an impressive selection of masterpieces from the Kunsthaus Zurich: fascinating paintings from the late Gothic period, the Golden Age of the Netherlands, the Italian Baroque, and the Venetian Settecento. Icons of Swiss art, including Fuseli, Böcklin, Hodler, Segantini, Vallotton, and Giacometti are among the highlights of the collections. First-class works by leading painters draw the viewer into the colorful world of Impressionism and Post-Impressionism, at whose center stands a group of works by Monet. Besides pieces by Munch, there are important works by Kokoschka, Beckmann, and Corinth. Last but not least, this splendid book presents an excellent array of early 20th-century works by Picasso, Matisse, and Chagall, as well as American post-war art, Pop art, and other works up to the present time: Twombly, Beuys, Bacon, Baselitz, and Fischli/Weiss set the tone here.
