Reviews

"With its stunning illustrations, the book is visually thought provoking and useful for those interested in the origins of still-life painting."--C.A. Hanson, Choice
"Reading the essay and savoring the images in this substantial, handsomely produced volume coaxes reflection. . . . Inviting 'careful looking at pictures, both in quest of comparable details and more generally' (32), David Ekserdjian's book sets a generous table."--Alfred Acres, Renaissance Quarterly
