Summary, etc.:
In the same style, manner, and format as The Louvre: All the Paintings, every Old Master painting that is on display in The Vatican is included in this deluxe, slip-cased volume with companion DVD, as well as hundreds of additional masterpieces and treasures in the Papal collection.
"The book is organized into 23 sections representing the museums and areas of the Vatican, including the Pinacoteca, the Sistine Chapel, the Raphael Rooms, the Borgia Apartments, the Vatican Palaces, and St. Peter's Basilica. Each one of the 976 works of art represented in the book--including 661 classical paintings on display in the permanent painting collection and 315 other masterpieces--is annotated with the name of the painting and artist, the date of the work, the birth and death dates of the artist, the medium that was used, the size of the work, and the catalog number (if applicable). In addition, 180 of the most iconic and significant paintings and other pieces of art are highlighted with 300-word essays by art historian Anja Grebe on such topics as the key attributes of the work, what to look for when viewing the work, the artist's inspirations and techniques, biographical information on the artist, and the artist's impact on art history."--Publisher's description.
