Reviews

A substantial monograph that opens at the poignant moment when Sofonisba 'left her father's home' to study art.---Deborah Solomon, New York Times
Sofonisba's Lesson tells the story of how it was possible for a young Cremona woman to make a name for herself in the competitive man's world of 1550s Italy and further afield in Spain . . . Having run through the biographical information intrigued and entranced, the reader will hit upon the catalog of works without even realizing it; Cole writes with a style that is both thought-provoking and relatable, his subject matter indelibly endearing.---Cindy Helms, New York Journal of Books
