Critique: 'This sumptuous volume is a feast for lovers of French art... Especially interesting are the commentaries by Eric M. Zafran, the museum's Curator of European Art. Each one is a short but fascinating art-history lesson summarizing the artist's life and giving background information on the painting. Scholarly, witty and compulsively readable, they often include quotes from contemporary critics or illustrations of other artworks related to the painting' --Vivian Thomas, France Today
