From the Publisher"Ingrid Rowland brings a lost world to life. She has given us a genuinely metropolitan High Renaissance, not only passionate and learned, but also sexy, urbane, and fascinating."
— Anthony Grafton
"This engaging collection of 17 essays focuses on Renaissance painting, with forays into Ingres, Roman archaeology, and David Hockney’s research into Old Master optics. But this barely does justice to the broadly roaming intellect at work, which can move from Copernicus to the libretto for Peter Grimes to the Gospel of Matthew without a pause…Highly recommended."

"…as a brightly lit bustle through widely scattered topics, From Heaven to Arcadia offers pleasures on almost every page….the essays are celebrations of the glories of the Renaissance and those who write about them."
— Theodore K. Rabb, The Times Literary Supplement
