About the Author:

Joseph Manca, Professor of Art History, Rice University.

Review:

`Joseph Manca, the author of this handsome book, is au fait not only with art history, but also with the sociological preoccupations of our times. Against this background he presents Tura as a product of the intellectual and emotional attitudes of the Estense court in Ferrara for which he
worked. His analysis is convincing and he makes skilful use of contemporary documents. The artist's originality and power seem all the more remarkable.'
Angus Lacey, Rivista No.377

`first-rate monograph ... Manca's study of Cosme Tura replaces all others and is highly recommended.'
CHOICE Oct. 2000, Vol.38, No.2.

`Joseph Manca has provided a lengthy and well-researched catalogue raisonne of accepted and disputed works, accompanied by sixty-three pages of documents. Manca has what is known in the trade as "a good eye". His attributions are well-argued and his observations on Tura's technique are
sound.'
