    I buy every book I can find on the collections of major museums, and this book is among the very best The reproductions are gorgeous and very generously sized, and there are full page details of many of the major works The two famous Bosch triptychs each are printed on foldout pages, so there is plenty of detail The book is divided into fourteen chronological sections, each of which has an introductory essay the real treasure is, of course the excellent reproductions of the paintings and a few sculptures Highly recommended.

    This summer I spent five days at the Prado devouring one of the world s greatest art collections I own over 100 art books and I can honestly say that this is the best book that I own The paintings are all displayed perfectly and the text is enlightening With almost 500 pages, it took me over 30 minutes to just briefly turn the pages when it first arrived The title is The Prado Masterpieces The book itself is a masterpiece in its own right.
