Some reactions to the book:

A terrific work, a revisioning as well as a renewal of the original.

Dame Marina Warner

It is a fascinating work and I am delighted that we at the National Gallery now have a copy of your work to keep for posterity and to consult.

Caroline Campbell Director of Collections and Research at the National Gallery London

What a wonderful enterprise and what a delight going into the pictures so intimately. I have always thought Duccio and the Sienese the real Rennaissance Masters and you clearly confirm that view. Vasari was partisan and it has taken almost five centuries to put that right. Well done!

Duncan Macmillan, Emeritus Professor of Art History at Edinburgh University and Curator of the Talbot Rice Gallery
