"The conceptual aim of The Florentine Academy is grand, and Karen-edis Barzman goes far toward achieving it...Barzman has provided an excellently organized and written, highly-illuminating study of the Florentine Accademia di Disegno - one that both details the fullness of its internal organization and reveals, within some limits, how it actually functioned in early modern Florentine society." Italian Politics and Society "[Barzman] enlarges our understanding of innumerable historic and conceptual matters of great interest and importance. Her study is rooted in Florentine archival documents, many of which are used here for the first time...This book is a serious contribution to the field of early modern art history. It fills grievous and long-standing lacunae and opens many avenues for further exploration. It deserves to be widely read." CAA Reviews
