I very much enjoyed this history of the beginnings of Impressionism in France. It was well written, fairly well illustrated (there is always the internet for looking up more of the paintings mentioned, but I hate getting up from my reading to do that), and the subject matter and people involved were fascinating to me. Thanks AC and the Artist Lovers group on GR for drawing my attention to this book, which I doubt I ever would have heard of otherwise.

I wanted to add that after reading this, I am watching (for the second time) my DVD of the BBC drama series The Impressionists starring Richard Armitage.

At first I found it seriously boring, but when I gave myself to read through the technical parts without worrying about understanding it all, I began to enjoy it more. The Dome was an incredible and extremely interesting project to read about, and Bruneslleschi was clearly a genius. King alluded to some kind of crisis and the downfall of our hero, but they all turned out to be minor setbacks in his career than actual downfalls. This was misleading and a bit annoying. But overall, because of the fascinating subject matter, I found it a worthwhile read and would recommend it to people who are interested in mechanical engineering, architecture, or life during 15th Century Italy.… (altro)

A thorough biography of bookseller Vespaniano da Bisticci, which also contains much fascinating information about many of his clients and patrons, as well as a readable account of the biblio-culture of fifteenth-century Italy. Yes there is a lot of detail here, but it's quite readably done.
