The quality of the images, and the information provided with them makes this a very good book overall. As a painter, I bought this book to study the details of the images, and I am pleased with it. The first 80 pages are largely a series of academic and somewhat wordy essays exploring aspects of Raphael's life, paintings, evidence and conjecture about his models. The remaining 100 pages is devoted to a selection of exceptional images, with a full page explanation provided on the facing page. The printing detail and color rendition are superb, with no grain visible to my eye, and with enlarged details for many pictures on subsequent pages. Full histories are provided on the facing page for most of the images in this book. All that is missing from my point of view is an index, a list of illustrations, and a brief introduction to the artist.

Of course ! Woman is the grace and beauty, and this book focus on that kind of beauty as it's title. "Raphael : Grace and Beauty", it is not only a book about "How sprezzatura he had", but it also tell us the answers of "What are the things hiding inside his works of graces?" and "Why are they have to be realized?". With many essays of many well-known scholars, you will find many useful points of view for your doubt more or less. However, it is easy to read and follow the words. It's format is suitable and luxurious with the outstanding fornt jacket picture, "detail from Fornarina", that is also the main grace analyzed in this book. You won't be disappointed about the qualities of the pictures in this book. There is no corrupted picture color, though it is a picture detail. This book includes of many picture datails that are interesting points for everyone who wants to see the missing details of other books.
