About the book:

These lavish volumes feature highlights of five of the collections in the J. Paul Getty Museum. Each volume contains between seventy-five and one hundred objects, handsomely reproduced in full color and described by members of the curatorial staff.

Included are many objects that have never before been reproduced, as well as all of the Museum's spectacular new acquisitions--among them, Fra Bartolommeo's Rest on the Flight into Egypt and CÚzanne's Still Life with Apples; van der Schardt's small bronze statue Mercury, sculpted in the sixteenth century; Michelangelo's sublime drawing The Holy Family with the Infant Saint John the Baptist; and Boccaccio's Fates of Illustrious Men and Women, a manuscript magnificently illuminated in France in the fifteenth century.

In addition to English, each volume is available in French, German, Italian, Japanese, and Spanish Two additional titles, on photographs and sculpture, will appear next year.
