Of Heaven & Earth
Glasgow Museums owns one of the finest collections of Italian art in Northern Europe. Its richness derives from the great industrial and mercantile wealth that Glasgow enjoyed in the nineteenth century as the Second City of the British Empire and the fourth richest city in Europe, as well as from the generosity and civic pride of her citizens. The collection is remarkable for both the quality and interest of individual works and for its chronological range.
This catalogue looks at 41 of the key works from the collection, with insightful commentary on each. Also included are short introductions to the art history of the periods during which the works were made.
