Among the random delights of this catalog are Matisse's joyful, spectacular ceramic-tile mural Apollo; an imposing granite statue of Egyptian pharaoh Tanwetamani (7th century B.C.), who survived the conquest of Egypt by Assyrian invaders; Constantin Brancusi's bronze, marble and limestone Blond Negress I, inspired by a young African woman; and works by Rembrandt, Goya, Durer, Turner, van Gogh, Miro, Jennifer Bartlett and Anselm Kiefer. The Toledo Museum in Toledo, Ohio, founded in 1901, boasts a world-class collection, and this sampler, with pithy commentaries by art historian Neff on 138 color plates of excellent quality, will please connoisseurs and casual browsers alike. Instead of Edward Hopper's familiar, stark evocations of urban loneliness, we get Two on the Aisle, his bravura depiction of a theater. And Pierre Bonnard, Post-impressionist master of everyday scenes, is represented here by his phantasmagoric exploration of the myth of the abduction of Europa.
