Pressestimmen"An essential handbook for the pro, and also a beautifully illustrated primer for the layperson. Kirsh and Levenson teach the most valuable lessons about painting of all: how meanings, material, and techniques are bound up together." John Walsh, former director, J. Paul Getty Museum "Every element of Kirsh and Levenson's book is smart, concise, and informative. It is the essential book on its subject." Kenneth Baker, San Francisco Examiner & Chronicle "A long overdue book with direct relevance for modern students of the history of art." Libby Sheldon, Burlington Magazine "Lavishly illustrated and lucidly written, Seeing Through Paintings will fascinate anyone with more than a passing interest in art." Virginia Quarterly Review
