Usually the books of Kenneth Clark - now unjustly neglected - get it spot on with a truly remarkable blend of stuff and style. Here, the "stuff" is plentifully present but the author has yet to develop that brisk, vivid style which transformed his later books from textbooks into page-turners. Don't get me wrong, the text is clear and readable - it just lacks the pzazz of his more popular books. Oh, and the illustrations are, I agree, truly lamentable.

I haven't compared this to the original, but it's hard to imagine it could have been this bad. What a disappointment not to be able to view better reproductions of the paintings discussed in the text.
