There are now over 400 Italian paintings in the Metropolitan Museum, 150 of them acquired in the more than thirty years since the Museum first published a catalogue of its Italian works. The first volume of a greatly enlarged and extensively revised catalogue, the Florentine School, was published in 1971. This volume on the Venetian school will be followed by a third one on the Sienese, Central and Neapolitan schools, and a fourth on the North Italian schools.

In the present book the paintings are arranged in alphabetical order by artist, and, within the artist, in order of accession number. A brief biography of each artist is given, and every painting in the catalogue is illustrated, some with details.

The author is an internationally known authority in the field of Italian paintings. His collaborator is Curator of European Paintings in the Museum.
