The National Gallery, London, holds one of the world's richest and most comprehensive collections of European paintings from the thirteenth century to 1900. The Complete Illustrated Catalogue, first published in 1995, provides concise, systematic, and up-to- date information on every work owned by the National Gallery and on permanent or long-term loan, and is an essential work of reference for scholars in art history, students, teachers, picture researchers, and anyone professionally concerned with the art world. This expanded edition of the catalogue includes an appendix of over 100 paintings acquired by the National Gallery since the book was last printed in 1996. It contains more than 2,300 entries, organized alphabetically by artist and giving title, date, attribution, inventory number, support, medium, and dimensions for every work, and concise, authoritative text on the subject matter, origins, function, and provenance, with bibliographical references. There is a brief biography for each artist; a bibliography of major studies of the collections; and a detailed subject index.
