Benozzo Gozzoli
Diane Cole Ahl
November 1996
From Library Journal
Was artist Benozzo Gozzoli an accomplished Quatrocento artist or a second-rate Fra Angelico? Thanks to this first comprehensive study of the artist in English in nearly a century, a verdict is possible. Ahl (art, Lafayette Coll.) consolidates ten years of fresh research into a lavishly illustrated, seminal work detailing Gozzoli's 60-year artistic career.

Chapel of the Magi: The Frescoes of Benozzo Gozzoli
Christina Acidini A. Luchinat (Editor)
October 1994
From Publishers Weekly
The procession of the three Magi unfolds with a mixture of exotic, oriental splendor and stately, bourgeois respectability in the fresco cycle painted by Benozzo Gozzoli on the walls of the Medici family private chapel in Florence.
