Editorial Reviews

Art Bulletin
Antal's book is one of the first attempts to trace the origins of an extended period of art in contemporary social structure... it poses interesting problems,
introduces hitherto neglected facts, and illuminates in many ways the style and the content of Florentine painting...Florentine Painting and Its Social Background raises new and important problems in the interpretation of Florentine painting, and the broad correlations which it proposes will extend its influence to the several fields of late mediaeval and Renaissance history.
New Statesman
The whole work is readable, learned and brilliantly conceived; on no future excursions to the Spanish Chapel and Santa Croce shall we ever see exactly what we saw before.
