Editorial Reviews

Lawrence Gowing
"Continuously brilliant and enjoyable." --Sir Lawrence Gowing, The Observer
Chicago Tribune
"An art book that can be given with pride and received with pleasure...Watteau, Tiepolo, David, and Goya are the dominant names in this attractive volume, but a host of lesser figures give variety and interest to its pages." --Chicago Tribune
