Reviews

A Modern Art Notes Best Book of the Year

"An informative celebration of two competing geniuses."
--Richmond Times-Dispatch "An intricate plot . . . [with] provocative ideas." --The Wall Street Journal

"Thrilling . . . Written with a novelist's sense of pace." --The Independent (London) "Fascinating, revelatory and often daring. . . . Jones makes a wonderful guide to this dramatic moment of history." --Christian Science Monitor "Art lovers, Renaissance junkies, and even travelers will love this book."--Kirkus Reviews (starred) "Delightful. . . . Vibrant . . . Sparing neither the two artists, nor Florence, their quirks of character. They are flanked by a vivid parade of supporting characters."
--The American Scholar

"Energetic, fast-paced . . . [and] dazzling."
--Publishers Weekly

"[Jones] recreates for us the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of 16th century Florence.... [And] compellingly creates the world the two antagonists inhabited, replete with a cast of interesting and colorful supporting characters. . . . That propels us as surely as any well written novel, straight through to the final page."
--New York Journal of Books

"There is sensuous finesse in Jones's descriptions."
--The Observer

"The Lost Battles . . . reanimates the giddy heights of the Renaissance through its evocation of a mighty scrap between Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo."
--The Daily Telegraph
