Among them are masterpieces by Duccio di Buoninsegna, Paul Cézanne, Salvador Dalí, Ferdinand Hodler, Ludwig Kirchner, Paul Klee, Franz Marc, Henri Matisse, Méret Oppenheim, Pablo Picasso, and Félix Valloton, and many others. For each work, the book includes a full-page illustration and a reexamination of the work by one of seventy international experts. An essay describing the development of the museum and its collection introduces the book.
