"Though it is a far-reaching critique of the kind of historicism that contents itself with studying the past without regard for the present, Keith Moxey's Visual Time: The Image in History is not an attempt to liberate us from history. On the contrary, it is a critique of historicism in the name of history, and it never loses sight of the urgent issues that have fueled historicism, especially in the last century." -- Amy Knight Powell * CAA Reviews *
"Due to the breadth and variety of content and theory, the book should have wide-ranging application for art historians working in a number of geographic regions and time periods, and it should benefit those working in theory as well as object-based scholarship. . . . Moxey's work is another valuable foray into a rich field, and it has the potential to reshape art historical discourse." -- James Fishburne * Comitatus *
"This book, with its sophisticated language and discussion of methodological and historiographical insights, will be key reading for graduate students and scholars across art history and related fields. While the case studies pertain largely to sixteenth-century northern European works, Moxey's thoughtful and provocative consideration of issues related to time, history, periodization, style, aesthetics, and presence in the interpretation of objects from the past will appeal to all who are grappling with these theoretical issues." -- Joyce de Vries * Sixteenth Century Journal *
"Affect and historicism-dueling presences within any art experience-animate Keith Moxey's superb new collection of essays on Northern Renaissance painting." -- Christopher P. Heuer * Renaissance Quarterly *
