Arranged chronologically from the late Renaissance to the rise of Neoclassicism - from Giulio Romano's The Four Elements (c.1530) to Duranti's Falsehood Is the Cause of All Evil (1835/45) - this handsome volume includes works by Vasari, Piranesi and Tiepolo and Canaletto's wonderful The Feast of 'Fat Thursday' in Venice. David Lachenmann's essay on Wolfgang Ratjen and his collection is followed by the catalogue of 65 drawings, with commentaries and fine reproductions of the works and associated sketches.
