It is built round illustrations of details, nearly all from paintings in the Prado."-Peter Campbell, London Review of Books; "A ravishingly beautiful, highly informative book. Brown and Garrido work well together, interweaving the artistic/historical background with the messy forensic facts effortlessly; the detail is stunning."-George Crisp, Art ReviewAbout the Author:
