Reviews

"All in all, Gahtan and Pegazzano have put together an excellent volume in which the authors have contributed a great deal of valuable art historical and museological content for our consideration. It is a book that will undoubtedly inspire further research by others, stimulate scholarly discourse, and lead to future publications of import."
