From Library Journal

This catalog for a show at the Hunter College Art Gallery commemorates the 500th anniversary of Giulio Romano, noted student of Raphael and artist of the High Renaissance, exploring his drawings and designs. A favorite of Duke Frederico Gonzaga of Mantua, Romano created exclusively for him. His designs included everything from saltcellars to Frederico's Palazzo Te, as he transformed Mantua into a glorious city. Seven chapters, each by an art historian, are interspersed with commentary on individual works that develops all the dimensions of his art. The range of works encompasses the profane and sacred in Renaissance art, from secular mythological themes based on the work of Ovid to the scandalous eroticism of I modi to religious adorations. Rarely did Romano fully execute paintings, leaving the task to assistants, so the focus of this show and the catalog of drawings from his hand are particularly relevant to his art. Any New World exhibition presenting artists of the Italian Renaissance is worthy of consideration, and this is no exception. The clear, well-documented text is suited both to specialists and to more casual readers. Recommended for art school, museum, and public libraries.DEllen Bates, New York

I was looking more for his architecture and this was almost exclusively paintings and drawings.
