Volume II: A Century of Wonder

by Lach, Donald F.

In The Visual Arts, the author focuses specifically on the effect of the “silent sources” on European art. These sources are the Eastern art and artifacts, flora, fauna, and crafts that found their way to the West. “The author shows that European artists of the sixteenth century were deeply influenced by Asian design and ideas, and his contention is borne out by a wealth of detail discussed with scholarly exactitude.” - Arts Review.
