Sinopsis: Book by Samuels Ernest
Críticas: Painstakingly researched and beautifully written. Remarkably absorbing...Does full justice to the verve and excitement of Berenson's connoisseurship. The depth in which this book explores the young connoisseur's life is quite extraordinary...Our understanding of Berenson's life and work is permanently changed. An in-depth, sensitive, and total portrait of Bernard Berenson. "[The] Making of a Connoisseur" commences with B. B.'s childhood in Lithuania, his family's immigration to Boston, his education, travel, and development during the first four decades of his life...One eagerly anticipates the second volume that is to cover the last five and a half decades. It is difficult to imagine a better biography or a better subject for one. Mr. Berenson wanted to improve the world, and he did. How he did it is a heroic and terribly human story...Everybody who was anybody in the art world at the time appears in Bernard Berenson...The killings in the art market, the quarrels among experts and the convoluted negotiations all make for even better reading than one might anticipate, for at the center of it all, beyond the story of our greatest art critic, is art itself.
