About the Author

NAOKO TAKAHATAKE is Associate Curator at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.


"More than 100 such chiaroscuro prints, including ones after Raphael, Titian and Parmigianino, were on view earlier this year at LACMA...and in the show's catalog, Ms. Takahatake shows step-by-step how Italian artists made these rich prints. This is an authoritative volume, and a handsome one too, laid out with spare elegance by Green Dragon Office of Los Angeles and printed on caress-inviting matte stock." -The New York Times

"Brimming with full-color illustrations of rare and beautiful works, The Chiaroscuro Woodcut in Renaissance Italy offers a fresh and informative interpretations of these remarkable prints, which exemplify the rich imagery of the Italian Renaissance -- making it a critically important and highly recommended addition to personal, professional, community, college, and university libraries." -Midwest Book Review

"Takahatake, the curator, offers a sharp surmise in the show's first-rate catalog:....The book is jam-packed with new, technically oriented scholarship and scientific analysis of the blocks, inks and paper used, which helps untangle the narrative of chiaroscuro printing's spread." -Los Angeles Times

"The catalogue, beautifully illustrated with full-color images, is an important addition to the literature on printing." -College Art Association
