"'Art History Through the Camera's Lens effectively explores the dependent relationship between photography and art history from their beginnings in the nineteenth century, a relationship that also made possible the development of connoisseurship, lectures with paired lantern slides, the critical history of images, and the art book.'." -- Richard Brillant of Columbia University, New York

"'These essays provide a most welcome historical assessment of fundamental aspects of the photography of art.'." -- Egbert Haverkamp-Bergemann of Institute of Fine Arts, New York University

"An important first step in the interrogation of photography as a formative influence within the discipline of art history…A much-needed and welcome addition to the study of photography and its seminal influences on contemporary and historic practices." -- Glenn G. Willumson of Victorian Studies
