Reviews

  • Calasso has written a brilliant, eccentric, provocative, annoying, and thoroughly splendid celebration of a great painter.

    The New Republic
  • As one has come to expect of this polyglot and polymathic author, the range of references that inform his viewings is broad, deep and effortless

    The Art Newspaper
  • The next best thing to visiting Europe and seeing the painter's work . . . Calasso is one of the most demanding and intoxicating critics writing today.
