Posted on July 23, 2015 | | Leave A Comment

The San Diego Museum of Art’s latest publication celebrates the museum’s important and outstanding collection of European art. Italian, Spanish, and French Paintings before 1850 in the San Diego Museum of Art catalogues paintings by Giotto, Fra Angelico, El Greco, Goya, Francisco de Zurbarán, Juan Sánchez Cotán, Simon Vouet, and many other major artists.

 

Nearly 80 works are included in the catalogue. Each is accompanied by a comprehensive entry with a detailed provenance, restoration and condition notes, and bibliography, as well as an essay providing background on the work and the artist. The information was compiled and written by John Marciari, curator at the Morgan Library & Museum, New York. Marciari also provides the book’s introductory essay, which chronicles the history of the collection.

The book was produced by Marquand Books and designed by Jeff Wincapaw. The 268-page book includes 275 color images. Copies can be purchased through SDMA.
