Any Four Volumes, in a Cloth Case, 128. From the SPECTATOR.— It is high time that some thorough and geceral acquaintance with the works of these mighty painters should be spread abroad, and it is curious to think how long their names have occupied sacred niches in the world's heart without the presence of much popular knowledge about the collective work of their lives......If the present series of biographies, which seems to be most thoroughly and tastefully edited, succeeds in responding to the wants of modest, if ardent, art-knowledge, its aim will be accomplished.'

From the TIMES.— Few things in the way of small books upon great subjects, avowedly cheap and necessarily brief, have been hitherto so well done as these biographies of the Great Masters in painting. They afford just what a very large proportion of readers in these hurrying times wish to be provided with-a sort of concentrated food for the mind.'
