Art on the Cheap

Studies in the Italian Baroque

By Rudolf Wittkower

Thames & Hudson £7.50 paper order from our bookshop

The most important thing about this book is the label on the back which reads: ‘Price £7.50’. Admittedly it is a sticky label and that, I fear, means that next time I look it may be £8.50 – and eventually more. But in any case it is a splendid example of the phenomenon of ‘paper-backs to the rescue’ for art-historians.
