The Wallace Collection owns one of the finest collections of fine and decorative arts in the world. This splendid book provides a marvellous introduction to the museum's treasures and the fascinating history of its Founders, the first four Marquesses of Hertford and Sir Richard Wallace. The Collection is best known for its paintings by artists such as Titian, Rembrandt, Hals (The Laughing Cavalier) and Velazquez and for its outstanding collection of eighteenth-century French paintings, porcelain, furniture and gold boxes, probably the best to be found anywhere outside of France. But visitors can also enjoy superb medieval and Renaissance objects, including Limoges enamels, maiolica, glass and bronzes, as well as the finest array of princely arms and armour in Britain, comprising both European and Oriental objects. With commentaries on more than 400 works of art, all of them beautifully illustrated, this book highlights every aspect of this great museum's extraordinary riches, providing both an excellent overview of the Collection and an enduring reference to many key themes in European art.
