"The chapters contain much information about the artists themselves as well as many other people, and this is one of the strengths of the work in that some of this information may be appearing for the first time in the form of a published book. Although each of the essays purports to deal with a single painter more are included and there are a large number of biographical references. For the research worker in this field the book can be highly recommended. . . . This is a detailed scholarly book. . . . It is very-well referenced; there are copious notes, an extensive bibliography and a good index. David Stacey is to be complimented on a fine work." * International Journal for the History of Engineering & Technology *
