There are now over 400 Italian paintings in the Metropolitan Museum, some 140 of them acquired in the thirty-year period since the Museum published a catalogue of its Italian works. Here is the first volume of a greatly enlarged and extensively revised catalogue. It will be followed by a volume on the Venetian school, another on the North Italian school, and a volume including the Sienese, Central, and South Italian schools.

In the present book the paintings are discussed in chronological order, or as close to this as the evidence permits. A brief biography of each artist is given, and virtually all the paintings in the catalogue are illustrated.

The author is an internationally known authority in the field of Italian painting. His assistant is Associate Curator in the Museum's Department of European Paintings.
