Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...highly recommended..." Times Literary Supplement

"The scholarly approaches range from broad social history to detailed investigations of technique; it is impossible to treat them all in detail here, but they are of exceptional quality and interest...the book is also useful for its treatment of the historiography of the artist by tracing key issues in Bellini scholarship and his shifting critical fortunes. All the authors are sensitive to the book's dual audience of specialists and students." CAA Reviews, Maria Ruvoldt
