The 129 masterworks gathered here have been organized to represent five interlocking passions that have fascinated artists the world over: Love in all its many forms, physical, spousal, and parental, its joyous as well as heartbreaking aspects; Anguish, of loss, oppression, physical suffering, and death; Awe, of nature and the supernatural, including expressions of inwardness and spiritual transcendence; Triumph, the thrill of victory in religious, military, and athletic contexts; and Joy, in creation, in aesthetic, visual delight, in music, and in dance.
