Editorial Reviews

 "The virtue of the single-volume its comprehensive compactness and its price--a third less than London's [National Gallery catalogue of 15th-century Italian paintings]. Academic, large public, and special libraries wanting to modernize their collections are advised to purchase."--Library Journal

"This examination of [the National Gallery's] 15th-century Italian paintings is a model of recent art historical research, conservation practices, and bibliography. The project has been blessed from the beginning with the participation of Miklós Boskovits of the Universitá degli Studi di Firenze, one of the foremost scholars in art history, assisted by the curator of Italian paintings at the National Gallery, David Alan Brown, and other scholars working in specialized areas of the field.... The 153 paintings are accompanied by excellent color reproductions, and 289 black-and-white photographs illustrate related materials.... The present catalog provides a thorough education for any student of 15th-century Italian painting. Highly recommended."--Choice
