Reviews

"With the book's large dimensions, it's easy to become absorbed in every fresco, painting and sculpture. The expressions, movements and subtle nuances that becomes lost in small reproductions... TASCHEN have once more produced a treasure of art historical appreciation."
"The photography is sharp, the colour true and full of lustre... This will prove to be one of the art books of the year."
"If a visit to the Sistine Chapel is not on the cards, this magnificent book is the next best thing..."
