National Gallery of Art Systematic Catalogues
National Gallery of Art experts and scholars from around the world contribute to the thirty-volume Systematic Catalogue, which ultimately will document more than five thousand paintings, sculptures, and decorative arts in the National Gallery of Art collections. Comprehensive essays about each work are presented, along with full-color or duotone reproductions. Several volumes feature a range of comparative figures and technical illustrations to aid understanding of the latest conservation research. Where appropriate, concordances of old and new titles, attributions, and accession numbers are included; in addition, each catalogue contains extensive notes, references, a full bibliography, and an index. Seventeen volumes of the Systematic Catalogue have been published. Backlist and future titles in this series are now being distributed by Princeton University Press.
