Too much history not enough art for me,
This review is from: Titian: His Life (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a long book, over 700 pages without, for an art book, a lot of illustrations. For me, there was way too much history of the period and the people who were Titian's patrons which I did not feel always added to my appreciation of the paintings. For anyone who is also interested in the surrounding history then I'm sure this would be a good buy. I have not, so far, made it to the end and found it too academic for my taste.
