Fascinating so far. Discusses how paintings came to be, the relationships and contracts between the patrons and commissioners and the artists and their apprentices, and how the whole process evolved over the century.

Incredibile saggio di storia dell'arte assolutamente da leggere. Non è, come pure tanti hanno detto, un saggio di storia sociale dell'arte. Si tratta di un saggio che pone in primo piano tutte, ma proprio tutte, quelle cause che portano alla nascita dell'opera d'arte. Alcuni esempi presi in esame nel libro: il Forth Bridge di Baker e il ritratto di Kahnweiler di Picasso. Un ponte tra critica storia per capire l'opera d'arte, la sua nascita e la sua funzione.
