About the Author

Reviews
"Lakey pores over medieval sculpture at Modena and Ferrara cathedrals, plus pulpits at Pisa and Pistoia by father and son Nicola and Giovanni Pisano, to explode the established theory that Renaissance painters 'invented' linear perspective."--Apollo

"An erudite study.... The author's larger argument concerning the origins of perspective may not convince all readers but should fuel productive reflection and discussion about medieval sculpture and its place in the narratives of art history."--Peter Scott Brown, caa.reviews

Finalist for the 2020 ICMA Book Award
