Immeasurable insight from Ruskin. Best described as an unconventional guide to Florentine art and architecture, not without his insertions of critiques and lessons. It will make an invaluable (and enlightening) companion to the city.

One of the greatest books on Italian Art ever. The most accessible work of a feisty genius of a victorian art critic and Oxford Don. This book teaches you how to approach a work of art. Ruskin put everything he had into the works he examined, which was not negligible.

Reading this book is like walking in Forence with John Ruskin, stopping to look carefully at various paintings and frescoes.
Camille Malucci
A delightful book of art and Florence

If you want to stroll through Florence in a book and "see" some of her lesser known works, this book is for you.
