New colour photography throughout highlights the richness and diversity of the collection, including paintings by Rubens, Boucher, Courbet and Cassatt, and contemporary pieces by Sol LeWitt, Tony Cragg and Kiki Smith. Also featured are works from the museum's distinguished collections of decorative arts, contemporary glass, antiquities and African and Native American art. This is a superbly produced guide to one of the finest art collections in the United States. It includes works by Rembrandt, Monet and Brancusi, as well as important recent acquisitions by Cezanne, Ruisdael and Yinka Shonibare, among others. It is lavishly illustrated throughout with new colour photography.
