The text, divided into two volumes, brings together the illustrations of the 374 19th-century European paintings in the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute. The publication celebrates the centenary of the first purchase by Robert Sterling Clark in 1912: a portrait attributed to Théodore Géricault that Clark bought in Paris, where he had been living for a number of years. This became the central nucleus of this collection, which over the years focused on European painting of the 19th century.

Among the artists shown are William-Adolphe Bouguereau, the impressionists Camille Pissarro and Edgar Degas, and also such artists as John Constable and J.M.W. Turner, amongst others.

The illustrations (more than 450 in colour) are accompanied by bibliographical texts, historical and artistic notes and technical details.

In 2012, the volume won the George Wittenborn Award, not only for the significance and academic excellence of the texts, but also for the quality of the images, the choice of paper, the binding and the overall aesthetic sense.
