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, 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 great artists.
