Reviews

"I have rarely read a book as illuminating as this... With great tact and inventiveness, Elkins offers two basic correctives to what has been taken as the foundational procedure underlying Italian Renaissance painting and, by extension, Renaissance culture: (1) Perspective was referred to not in the singular but in the plural-not a perspective, but perspectives; and (2) it was not about drawing a unified pictorial space, but about drawing objects-not a way of unifying a picture, but an often playful fashioning of the objects in a picture."-Svetlana Alpers, Key Reporter
