Eyewitness Views
Making History in Eighteenth-Century Europe

Peter Björn Kerber

"[The] scholarly catalog, by Getty curator Peter Björn Kerber, restores much of the meaning that was lost as these works passed from generation to generation. . . . While anyone can appreciate these paintings aesthetically, viewers . . . require the catalog to understand their layered meanings and slant."
Wall Street Journal

The Lure of Italy
Artists' Views

Julian Brooks

From the sixteenth to the nineteenth century and beyond, European artists visited Italy as part of their education, and the country's ineffable allure inspired a wide array of unforgettable works. In this lively book, Julian Brooks offers a grand tour of his own through the drawings and watercolors of Turner, Canaletto, Lusieri, and many others who captured Italy through their art. The result is entertaining and breathtaking: a must-read for any Italophile.

This volume offers an unforgettable look at Annan's life and art through the prism of these works.
