Museum Schnütgen in Cologne

A Survey of the Collection

The Museum Schnütgen boasts a uniquely diverse collection from a wide range of periods and genres, assembling works from late antiquity to the nineteenth century, and including sculpture, ivory carvings, gold work, textile art, and more. 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.
