About the Author

Paul Hills is professor emeritus of the Courtauld Institute.


"Paul Hills is one of the most creative scholars of Italian Renaissance art"-Bruce Boucher, The Art Newspaper
"This thought-provoking study, with its ravishing illustrations, made me long to book the earliest flight to Italy, to drown myself anew in the masterpieces of Tuscany and Venice. It is a model of erudition and attentive looking, and of intelligent book design."-Ariane Bankes, The Spectator
"Marvellous book...It will open your eyes"-Martin Gayford, The Spectator
"Enchanting book"-Donal Cooper, Apollo Magazine
"As a theologian I rarely read a book of art history that is quite so fruitful to think with as this one."-Ben Quash, Art and Christianity
"Paul Hills is held in high regard by artists for his special sensitivity to the physical and formal beauties specific to painting and sculpture [. . .] Steadily and deeply the insights mount up, always particular and placed in context, but nevertheless tending to the subtler realm of symbolism and revelation, until they reach their apogee with chapters devoted to Donatello and Bellini, Lotto and Titian [. . .] [An] exceptionally handsome book"- Christopher Le Brun, RA Magazine
"In his richly illustrated book, Paul Hills discusses the motif of the veil and the act of unveiling in the arts of the early to High Renaissance, focusing on formal variety and changes of meaning"-Joachim Poeschke, Burlington Magazine
