These lambent essays, published in 1873, focus on Renaissance masters like Botticelli, Leonardo, and Michelangelo.  The book's brief conclusory essay was to prove far more influential than what preceded it, as Pater laid out his iconoclastic artistic philosophy and called for what was essentially a hedonistic approach to art.
