5.0 out of 5 stars breath taking artwork. I mean wow! 25 May 2001
By A Customer
This I a great book. I am an art student at college and I immediately fell in love with his art. The details in the paintings are wonderful, and I love the subjects that he chose, with the classical world being a passion of mine. His landscapes are also very beautiful showing what a real artist can do in oils. His sculptures are also of a very high quality with him being able to show such things as "An Athlete Wrestling with a Python". I would recommend this book to anyone. It is pure joy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth the money! 19 Mar 2000
By A Customer - Published on
A well-presented book; and most interesting details of the artist's life an times. Slight disappointment in the plates - not all in colour and not full-page size. It is however, an extensive look at the artist and his work, I believe worth owning if you are interested in the genre. Not so interested myself in the sculpture side of his work and the small black and white photos of same do not show from all angles, but in general a good purchase.
5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful , rare book 21 May 2009

A beautiful book, in excellent condition. I presented it as a gift and the recipient could not have been happier.
All of the artist's best work was included in gorgeous detail.
