KIRKUS REVIEW

Sumptuously reproduced Renaissance paintings from the Metropolitan Museum of Art's collection illustrate the biblical text (King James version); Muhlberger's extensive commentary on the artistry, social milieu, unusual features, and iconography of the paintings provides an elegant microcosm of the rich diversity and meaning art historians can derive from these lovely, complex works. A beautifully crafted book.
