Format: Paperback
Art historical scholarship has undergone a profound revolution in the past 25 years, but you would never know it from this tedious monograph. Walsh writes reasonably well, but without passion. The greater flaw, however, is the abscence of the kinds of histortical, political, social, or other insights that would provide a context for understanding the larger significance of Steen's work. Instead, one is left with a journeyman quality academic tome.
