The text is well written and informative without being overly technical or employing excessive terminology. (Association of Art Historians2009) Renaissance Art Reconsidered is rich in detail and broad in scope, but its most important accomplishment is its conveyance of individual attitudes on the great value placed on all forms of art. It provides a view of what was expected both throughout the creative process and in the end result. This anthology gives us insight into the needs and problems of the creative process of the artists, patrons, and viewers of the Renaissance. (Sixteenth Century Journal, Winter 2008)Vom Verlag:
