From Library Journal
Natali, director of Renaissance and Mannerist paintings at Florence's Uffizi Gallery, presents a summation of decades of work on del Sarto (1486-1530), one of the creators of the Mannerist style in Florence and France. Natali sets his vision of the artist against the traditional view, begun by Vasari, that del Sarto was a timid soul who wasted his talent. Instead, he shows del Sarto to have chosen a path that he rigorously followed in light of his humility and in a circle of like-minded friends and fellow artists. Not a catalogue raisonn?e (Natali defers to Sydney J.

From AudioFile
Thinking of the poems of Browning, one imagines Mediterranean lushness, sensuous music without rival. At first hearing, therefore, Frederick Davidson's voice--austere, clipped, world-weary--seems inappropriate, that is, until one hears how he carves the verse with his voice. Instead of producing the anticipated melodies, he delivers sound in slabs with ironic angles. Davidson's renderings are marvelous and unexpected. The recording doesn't list its contents. Besides making it difficult for a listener to locate favorite poems, this oversight conceals the absence of significant poems. J.F.P.
