Art Masterpieces

This audio book features selections of writings by authors and art historians covering some of the greatest works of Western painting, including Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa, Michelangelo's The Last Judgment, Rembrandt van Rijns' The Night Watch, and many more.

Twenty-two paintings are covered in this collection and each MP3 file covers a painting and has a high quality image of the art work embedded into it (which can be viewed in iTunes). Also included in this collection is a supplemental PDF which features images of all 22 paintings.
