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.
