Abstract:

The new guide to the collection of the Museum Schnütgen offers a compact, chronological overview of the internationally famous, high-quality and multi-faceted collection of the museum. The volume presents 280 works from the various sections of the collection in an attractive manner and with the latest research findings. The publication assembles works from the different art genres which form the unique diversity of the collection, from late Antiquity to the nineteenth century, from sculpture to ivory carvings and from gold work to textile art. Trenchant and informative contributions explain the individual objects and their unique features as well as their importance for the collection. The book addresses a wide public with its clearly written texts and lavish illustrations. Additional sections on the scholarly classification and discussion of the research surrounding the artworks also make the volume an important reference work for specialists.
