From Library Journal:

Brown, former director of the National Gallery of Art, has selected 129 masterpieces from 39 countries to be arranged according to their expression of five emotions?love, anguish, awe, triumph, and joy?which Brown argues are shared by all humanity across time and cultures. These works comprise the exhibition held at Atlanta's High Museum during the Olympics. From Rodin's "The Kiss" (strategically placed on the cover) to many lesser-known but high-quality pieces from every continent, each object receives a full-page color plate (quality varies) and a large-type, one-page discussion by a knowledgeable author. The exhibition is probably aesthetically satisfying. Ultimately, though, the book is bland and so diverse as to be amorphous. Not an essential purchase.
