This completely updated and revised edition of Sir Christopher White's catalogue of the Dutch paintings in the Royal Collection, first published in 1982, reproduces all entries in colour and fully integrates these within the text.

Since the publication of the 1982 edition many of the works have been cleaned and many, including works now recognised as by Rembrandt, have been re-attributed. Scholarship in this area has advanced dramatically in the same period, and the catalogue includes much new information as well as a fascinating account of the assembling of this important group of Dutch pictures, particularly by George IV, and the history of their display and appreciation.

Christopher White is a former Director of The Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art in London and the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford.
