Reviews

"Delightful and convenient ... rich and readable ... A valuable contribution and a model piece of art historical synthesis, the text is as well written as the project is deftly conceived." -- P. Emison CHOICE "Throughout the book, Partridge masterfully interweaves close formal and stylistic analysis with thorough treatments of these works' iconography, patronage, and relation to civic ritual, local history, and broader trends in spirituality and literature." -- Lorenzo G. Buonanno Renaissance Quarterly
