This second edition of Masterpieces of Painting in the J. Paul Getty Museum contains only thirteen of the paintings previously illustrated, indicating the number of significant acquisitions made by the Museum’s Department of Paintings since 1981. The fifty-three color plates reflect the emphasis that has been given to broadening the scope of the collection. Among the outstanding pictures acquired and featured here are works by Pissarro, Monet, Degas, and Lautrec, as well as masterpieces by Bouts, Mantegna, and Salviati. Each color illustration is accompanied by a text entry that provides both commentary and background information.
