This richly illustrated volume presents 100 artworks from the collection, dating from the 13th century to the 20th century and representing many of the most important artists, schools, and styles of European art history.

Acosta, Ph.D., Joslyn’s Associate Curator of European Art, offers a history of the arts in Omaha and the formation of the Museum’s European collection.
