Italian Paintings in the Norton Simon Museum: The Seventeenth and Eighteenth Centuries
Norton Simon amassed more than 100 Italian paintings during his 35-year career, and today they stand among the treasures of the Norton Simon Museum. In this catalogue—the first of two volumes devoted to the museum’s Italian painting collection—noted art historian Sir Nicholas Penny pairs 47 paintings from the 17th and 18th centuries with in-depth commentary. This is an indispensable overview of one of the greatest collections of its kind in the United States.
