As its title suggests, this book invites you to explore some of the highlights of a collection that spans seven millennia of art from diverse cultures around the globe. From the original gift given to the City of Baltimore “for the benefit of the public” in 1931, the collections of the Walters Art Museum have grown to more than 36,000 works of art. The 150 spectacular objects included here are grouped by theme, creating fascinating juxtapositions and surprising connections. While rooted in rigorous scholarship, their stories and meanings are recounted in an engaging and accessible way that captures the power of art to remind us what it is to be human.
