A compact, chronological overview of this internationally famous, multi-faceted collection, this volume attractively presents some two hundred and fifty works accompanied by trenchant and informative contributions which explain the individual objects and their unique features as well as their importance for the overall collection. Additional sections on scholarly classifications and discussions of the research surrounding these artworks make the volume an important reference guide for specialists, while the book’s beautiful color illustrations will draw in a wide general audience.
