I enjoyed this look at Alexandre Cabanel's life and work. It's obvious that a great deal of research went into this account and it's worth reading once if you are interested in the man's works. The one thing that I found odd was that, for a book about art, the art itself was very small. Paintings which are 6 feet tall in real life don't even get a full-page spread in the book. It would have been much more enjoyable to see larger images along with smaller close-ups of some of the more intricate parts of the paintings as well. I feel like a lot of the detail of the art was needlessly lost.
