This second volume of Professor Kurz's studies completes the comprehensive selection in Vol. I with a further thirty articles, published over forty years, and showing the extraordinary breadth of the author's interests. It begins with eight studies on Classical, Byzantine and Islamie art, continues to the Renaissanee and Baroque in Italy and Northern Europe, and ends with an entertaining section on the restoration, misattribution and faking of works of art. In this and Volume I, all of Professor Kurz's major studies are now available. Whether they throw fresh light on an old problem, or bring to attention an unnoticed work, they remain stimulating, and always highly intertaining. A sixteen-page memoir of Otto Kurz by Professor Sir Ernst Gombrich is included here as a preface to this second volume.
