> "Venetian Painting in the Early Renaissance" offers seven paintings
> from the last quarter century of the 1400s.  In the mid-1400s,
> Venice was the most powerful city in Italy but by the end of the
> fifteenth century the city's fortunes had begun to change.
> Venetian artists nevertheless maintained their prestige, legendary
> splendor, & international reputation.  Grounding their art in the
> senses, they appealed to the eye & the spirit through brilliant
> color, glowing light, & the beauties of nature. (NGA)
>      http://www.nga.gov/collection/gallery/gg15/gg15-main1.html
>
> "Giorgione & the High Renaissance in Venice" presents seven
> paintings by this influential painter (1500-20) & others whose work
> marks the beginning of the Venetian High Renaissance.  Giorgione
> introduced new subjects (mythological scenes & pastorals) & several
> technical innovations. (NGA)
>      http://www.nga.gov/collection/gallery/gg16/gg16-main1.html
>
> "Mannerism" offers seven Italian paintings covering 1520-40, the
> period just after the popular High Renaissance.  This period is
> known for its emphasis on self-conscious artifice over realistic
> depiction. (NGA)
>      http://www.nga.gov/collection/gallery/gg21/gg21-main1.html
>
> "Titian & the Late Renaissance in Venice" features seven paintings
> by Titian (Tiziano Vecellio), the preeminent artist among Venetian
> painters during the 16th century.  At the time (1540), Venice
> reigned as one of the most powerful city-states in Europe, &
> Venetian painters assumed a position of artistic supremacy in
> Europe that they would occupy for the rest of the century. (NGA)
>      http://www.nga.gov/collection/gallery/gg23/gg23-main1.html
>
> "Venetian Painting in the Later Sixteenth Century" shows seven
> paintings by the three most important challengers to Titian's
> dominance over Venetian art in the 16th century. (NGA)
>      http://www.nga.gov/collection/gallery/gg28/gg28-main1.html
>
> "Manet's The Dead Toreador & The Bullfight" explores why the
> artist, stung by critical comments in 1864, cut his painting
> "Incident in a Bullfight" in two & then painted The Dead Toreador &
> The Bullfight on the resulting two canvasses.  Using x-rays &
> intensive scientific analysis of the two existing paintings,
> historians have discovered fascinating connections between these
> seemingly unrelated works. (NGA)
>      http://www.nga.gov/collection/toreador.htm
>
> "Romantics & Realists" compares & contrasts the romantic & realists
> schools through seven French paintings (1812-1875).  The romantic
> movement, according to poet Charles Baudelaire, was "a manner of
> feeling."  The realists, in the next generation, were guided by
> observation & the idea that "painting is an essentially concrete
> art." (NGA)
>      http://www.nga.gov/collection/gallery/gg93/gg93-main1.html
>
> "American Impressionists of the Late 1800s & Early 1900s" offers
> seven paintings that help show how the invention of collapsible tin
> tubes to hold premixed oil paints (John Rand, 1841) freed the
> artist to leave the studio & explore the subject matter first-hand.
> The Americans built on the masterful work done by French
> impressionists, but focused on different subjects. (NGA)
>      http://www.nga.gov/collection/gallery/gg70/gg70-main1.html
>
> "Photographs of International Expositions" is a study & research
> collection of images documenting European & American art &
