lives in art,
This review is from: John Piper, Myfanwy Piper: Lives in Art (Hardcover)
This glorious book achieves what the title says: these are lives in art in very great detail.
Unless you are an art scholar (and will no doubt find fault somewhere)the book is best approached first by reading the introduction and then browsing. The index is good for this as usual. The illustrations are superb, and the production as a whole excellent. Not for bedside reading though, but far from just a coffee table book.
