Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I thought this was a wonderfull purchase, especially since it came so cheaply. I suspect , however the author may have been less verbose in his description of Raphael's prodigious talent. Some of the beauty of the paintings is lost in the authors waxing lyrical about the painter. We know he was great. We need to know more about the paintings themselves, their significance , their symbolism , their place in the art of the day , the techniques used to execute them , if known, perhaps even a note about their current value.
In other words give us more about the individual paintings themselves.
