Overflowing with impeccably reproduced images, this book offers full-page spreads of masterpieces as well as highlights of smaller details-allowing the viewer to appreciate every aspect of the artist's technique and oeuvre.

A fairly decent book, even though the text is repetitive. Just about all of the artist's surviving paintings are shown in chronological order and commented upon.
