The Standard Galleries of Holland
by Esther Singleton
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 1908
Number of pages: 273
This guide leads the tourist rapidly through the most important picture-galleries of Holland, and points out the pictures that all the world talks about; and gives some account of the Dutch masters, their qualities and characteristics as exemplified in their works, there and elsewhere. It does not pretend to be exhaustive, and confines itself almost exclusively to the consideration of the examples of native schools.

This book inquires into the function of all great art, and defines those elements which make for genuine worth. It explains both the basic and superficial differences between ancient and modern art and points out the superiority of the new methods.

We are dealing here with a master whose import is always serious, and whose artistic individuality is strongly impressed on all his works, either in sculpture or painting. Our selections represent his best work in both arts.
