Unusual and disconcerting, eccentric and secretive, Uccello has long been regarded as a marginal figure in the glory that was Renaissance Florence. This splendid volume does much to change that image and to explain the creative intellect and daring approach to perspective and color that set him on a course divergent from his contemporaries. Additionally, this is a study of 15th-century Florence-a city with a rich Gothic tradition evolving into a center of humanism and creativity. The Borsis, father and son, Renaissance scholars both, have brought together all surviving works in an illustrated catalogue raisonne, supplied an excellent chronology and bibliography, and contributed valuable insights and interpretations. A definitive work; highly recommended for all art libraries and large public collections.Paula Frosch, Metropo- litan Museum of Art Lib., New York
