Sienese Quattrocento Painting

Excerpt

This book is an anthology of Sienese quattrocento paintings and not a history of quattrocento painting. In the belief that what is termed artistic personality is better represented by a small number of pictures reproduced in detail than by a large quantity of general photographs, many important works have been omitted in order that the photographs included in the book should communicate morefully a sense of contact with originals.

In war conditions the preparation of such a book would have been impossible without the assistance of museum authorities in Great Britain and the U.S.A. In this connection I am specially indebted to Sir Kenneth Clark, of the National Gallery, London, and to Mr. John Walker, of the National Gallery of Art, Washington, as well as to Professor T. S. Bodkin, of the Barber Institutt at Birmingham; Mr. W. G. Constable, of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts; Mr. Horace Jayne, of the Metropolitan Museum, New York; Mr. S. C. Kaines-Smith, of the Cook Collection; Mr. Frank Lambert, of the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool; and Mr. Daniel Catton Rich, of the Art Institute of Chicago: all of whom have responded to requests for detail photographs of paintings in their galleries. I am also indebted to Mr. Ludwig Goldscbeider . . .
