The museums of Britain and Ireland contain an astonishing wealth of great art, by no means all of it in London. In this personal tour, the former Surveyor of the Queen's Pictures leads the reader through the galleries of England and on to Wales, Scotland and Ireland. The history of each collection is outlined, and a selection of its highlights and lesser-known gems described. The 273 colour illustrations include masterpieces by Mantegna, Rembrandt, Turner, Monet and Gauguin, among many other great artists.
