Editorial Reviews

"Scholars in the field of modernist studies will be eager to read about the development of connoisseurship in this period and about the relationships between Morelli, Berenson, Bell, and Fry s writings about art and the development of modernism.The author s attention to her own writing about history, in the context of a historiographical study, is particularly engaging." - Catherine Paul, Associate Professor of English, Clemson University
