From the Back Cover
"Here at last is a theory of art history that is insistently visual. One of the pleasures of reading Davis is that one feels once again that giants walk the land."--John Onians, author of Neuroarthistory: From Aristotle and Pliny to Baxandall and Zeki
"Visuality and Virtuality is a magisterial work both in conception and execution. This is art history at its very best."--James D. Herbert, author of Brushstroke and Emergence: Courbet, Impressionism, Picasso
