Reviews - What do customers think about National Portrait Gallery, London?

Warning - serious scholars only!  Aug 26, 2007
I have to warn any person who may be buying this for the artwork. As much as there needs to be a new book on the collection at the National Portrait Gallery, this book is sadly not that book.
All. 912. pages.are. Black and white.
Why would they do this?! I saw this at a local bookstore and all but ripped it off the shelf in my haste to finally get my hands on this long awaited book. My jaw fell open as I flipped in growing dismay.
The images are tiny, like postage stamps and only black and white! Only a true scholar would get any sort of benefit from this. And frankly, the internet could be used as a valuable reference tool for that at a lot cheaper price.
There needs to be a book like this, 900 pages or so with at least 60 percent in color. The works of art demand that much to be appreciated fully. This is yet another one of those 'trick' art books in which you find a majority of black and white images, a real pet peeve of mine.
Buyer beware.
Valuable Companion to an Oustanding Collection  Jul 21, 2005
With some 8,000 portraits, the National Portrait Gallery in London is an amazing museum, attesting to the ongoing importance of the portrait as a genre in Britain. That all of these works (reproduced in black and white) are included in the present catalogue makes it a tremendous resource. Writing in The Art Newspaper, Martin Bailey describes it as "an invaluable tool for art historians, biographers and publishers."
