    Description
    '[A] beautifully written wild-goose chase across the Renaissance... you cannot help but read on, and enjoy.'
    Waldemar Januszczak, Sunday Times

    '[This] collection of essays is full of pleasure... Fenton's curiosity extends in a thousand recherche directions. He likes to think about Egyptian mummies and Renaissance terracottas... He discusses the sewerage of 19th century Paris, in whose outflow Seurat's bather may or may not have wallowed. He speculates which way the head should face on the much restored Greek statue of the Venus with the Lovely Buttocks... always sparkily readable.'
    Julian Bell, Guardian

    'Refreshingly direct... both erudite and entertaining... an unusual but fascinating book which is a pleasure to read.'
    Evelyn Joll, Spectator
