This new catalog is the first complete guide to the European paintings of the Tweed Museum of Art at the University of Minnesota Duluth and highlights its ninety-one most prominent works. Renaissance and baroque works such as the Caravaggesque Scourging of Saint Blaise and Denys Calvaert's Flight into Egypt begin the collection that is perhaps at its best in its representation of nineteenth-century French art, including four works by Jean-Francois Millet and others by Theodore Rousseau, Charles-Francois Daubigny, and Camille Corot. Each is described not only in relation to its subject matter and artist's vision, but also in relation to the Tweed collection as a whole.What emerges from this catalog is not only a memorable guide to an amazing group of paintings, but a fascinating glimpse into the process of art collection during the past century.
