William T. Walters and his son, Henry, were unusual collectors in their extensive purchase of the art of their own time, as well as works from many key artistic periods.  This book presents the highlights of the Walters collection, including a series of paintings by the foremost masters of the Romantic era, J-A.-D. Ingres and Eugène Delacroix, landscapes by painters associated with the Barbizon school, Academic painting, and impressionist works by Édouard Manet, Edgar Degas, Claude Monet, and Alfred Sisley, as well as masterpieces of sculpture and decorative arts.
