Luca di Tomme: A Sienese Fourteenth-Century Painter

By Sherwood A. Fehm Jr. | Go to book overview

Foreword

When Sherwood A. Fehm died on July 9, 1983, at the age of 43, art history lost one of its finest young scholars. Thus, the present monograph represents the work of a life tragically cut short. Dr. Fehm had devoted his doctoral dissertation and numerous articles to Luca di Tommè. The manuscript for this book was completed in August, 1981. My involvement began in the spring of 1982 when Tony, as he was known to his friends, asked me to read the text and to offer suggestions for improving it and practical advice for seeing to its publication. I have confined my role as literary executor to carrying out his last wishes. In its final form, the book incorporates most of the changes we had discussed only hours before he died. Only a minor alteration to one passage and updating a few footnotes were left undone on the grounds that the information postdates the manuscript, which can otherwise stand on its own merits as he left it. The remaining changes were taken care of by Nancy van Itallie, who has edited the text with great care and discretion.

Dr. Fehm was encouraged in his scholarship by my father, H. W. Janson, who also supported grant applications on behalf of this book. Luca di Tommè is being published with the aid of substantial grants from the Samuel H. Kress Foundation and the Millard Meiss Publication Fund of the College Art Association; Neil and Ivan Phillips have also contributed generously. I would like to take this opportunity to express the gratitude Tony felt to these organizations and contributors. The greatest debt is owed to Southern Illinois University Press for its continuing commitment to this important project following the author's death. Their decision demonstrates the respect and affection Tony's colleagues and students felt for him.
