Published to coincide with the grand opening of the New European Paintings Galleries, 1250-1800, each of these fully illustrated sections offers the reader a series of thematic 'visits.' Color-coded maps, gallery numbers, landmarks, reproductions of the works, and helpful descriptions will orient users within the galleries and help them find the countless masterpieces that the Museum has to offer, and to view them in a comprehensible order."--Publisher description."@en ;
