"I was impressed by the massive documentation drawn together by McNairn, and by how he uses it. The book is a consistent blend of far-reaching erudition with clear writing. I was especially interested in the chapters on the visual monuments to Wolfe's memory. The author shows an excellent command of English thinking on art at the dawn of the neoclassic age, and gives clear, vibrant explanations." [translation] François-Marc Gagnon, Department of Art History, Université de Montréal.
