This book, and the exhibition that it accompanies, honors the 100th birthday of E.G. Buhrle and his impressive collecting skills, which led to his amassing the third largest private collection in the world. The 85 paintings selected for the exhibition are all reproduced here in beautiful color illustrations, with many enlarged details, that attest to the Swiss industrialist's superb connoisseurship in purchasing exquisite works of art. Though Buhrle's interests grew to include artists as early as Frans Hals and Canaletto and as late as Picasso, Frans Marc, Kandinsky, and Kokoschka, Impressionist paintings form the core of the collection, with significant holdings of Manet, Degas, Renoir, Monet, Van Gogh, and Cezanne. Each painting is accompanied by a signed, one-page essay. This is a fine addition for most libraries and will be of interest to laypersons and scholars alike.--Lynell A.
