Editorial Reviews

The Times
“The persuasiveness of his brilliant chain of argument is such that, in the end, the conclusions seem as firm as if based on first-hand documents.”
Hugh Trevor-Roper - The Listener
“An excellent translation of a brilliant and stimulating thesis, well-produced and richly illustrated.”
The Village Voice
“A cerebral detective story that uncovers the still pertinent bond between power and art.”
London Review of Books
“Includes much valuable research on the involvement of Piero's patrons in the great political, religious and cultural events of the time.”
