Collections of the National Gallery of Art Systematic Catalog


The National Gallery of Art collections include the most important Italian baroque paintings in the United States: the only landscape by Annibale Carracci in the nation; major works by Anton Maria Vassallo, Bernardo Strozzi, Donato Creti, and Sebastiano Ricci; and a number of view paintings by popular 18th-century Venetian artists Canaletto, Bernardo Bellotto, and the Guardi. Among the 69 works this volume explores are Orazio Gentileschi’s The Lute Player, considered his masterpiece; Jusepe de Ribera’s The Martyrdom of Saint Bartholomew, the Gallery’s first work from the school of Naples; and one of Bellotto’s largest and most remarkable view paintings, The Fortress of Königstein.
