This is by the Germanically thorough Hans Belting, authority on this fascinating painting. I found it almost more interesting to have the book than see the painting, (although it is nice to do both) because the painting is so complex and the detail is so great that you really need time to digest it, and also it helps to have some commentary. Highly recommended, it's a reasonably compact softback, well bound with excellent quality reproductions. There are other books available but I would say this is the best.

this book is fabulous. the reproductions are fanstastic, and i love that in the detailed images, well, they are very detailed! you can see the cracks in the paint and everything. i don't have anything to complain about this book, as it was just what i was looking for, but i'd love it it was just a little bigger, and maybe had a couple more images. other than that can't be faulted! would definitely recommed friends and family, or people looking to to buy this book as a present for someone.

Some of the prints are a bit on the small size but over all a good read.
