The National Gallery collections include the most important Italian baroque paintings in America: the only landscape by Annibale Carracci in the United States; major works by Anton Maria Vasallo, Bernardo Strozzi, Donato Creti, and Sebastiano Ricci; and a number of view paintings by the popular eighteenth-century Venetian artists Canaletto, Bernardo Bellotto, and the Guardi. Among the sixty-nine works explored in this volume are Orazio Gentileschi's Lute Player, considered his masterpiece; Jusepe de Ribera's Martyrdom of Saint Bartholomew, the Gallery's first work of the school of Naples; and one of Bellotto's largest and most remarkable view paintings, The Fortress of Königstein.
