Every painting discussed by Berenson has been illustrated from his own photographic archives and supplemented from other sources where these are preferable. They include hundreds that have never before been made available to the general public in reproduction. Since he wrote (and largely because he wrote), some of the paintings have been traced and further scholarly information about others has been assembled. These later researches are fully documented by Dr. Hanna Kiel, for many years Berenson’s associate and helper at “I Tatti.” The book is thus a major contribution to knowledge of Italian painting, as well as a delightful lesson in appreciation and enjoyment at its most sophisticated.
