Elizabeth Pilliod
July 2001
From Library Journal
Pilliod (art, Oregon State Univ.) methodically argues for both a reassessment of the place of Jacopo da Pontormo, Agnolo Bronzino, and Alessandro Allori in 16th-century painting and for a new understanding of the role of Giorgio Vasari's Lives in art history.
