A gorgeous book

"This is a beautifully printed book and a joy to study. The reason that I marked it down is that it is a bit on the small side and the commentary is rather sparse (which of course lets the paintings etc stand out clearly). For the price, it is remarkable value and I expect to refer to it many times over the years as it is well bound and uses good quality paper. This is not a coffee table book but one to be enjoyed on an ongoing basis."show more
