Roberto Longhi (1890 - 1970) is regarded by Italians as their most important art critic, art historian. Readers with more mundane or general interest in art history will find themselves puzzled by its obscurity. Longhi (1890-1970) is renowned throughout Italy as one of the greatest art historians of all time but never became popular elsewhere because of the difficulty of translating his colloquial prose.

Apart from his monograph on Piero della Francesca, few of Longhi's very idiosyncratic works have been translated into English; but, thanks to the enterprise of The Sheep Meadow Press, this situation is at last being remedied, and one must welcome the appearance of Three Studies.

It is wonderful to have in English these three essays by Roberto Longhi. With the exception of Walter Pater, it is difficult to think of a critic whose work is so close to the art it embraces that it becomes itself a kind of art. Yet Pater's criticism is always on the verge of metamorphosing into poetry.

Roberto Longhi (1890 - 1970) is regarded by Italians as their most important art critic, art historian, and prose stylist of this century, with unsurpassed powers of observation and description. This book is a new English version of the third edition (1963) of Longhi's seminal work on the Renaissance painter Piero della Francesca, with an introduction by Metropolitan Museum of Art curator Keith Christiansen. In the New York Review of Books, Francis Haskell wrote, Roberto Longhi is "the most brilliant Italian art historian of our century and a stylist of intoxicating powers . . . few of his very idiosyncratic works have been translated into English; but thanks to the enterprise of the Sheep Meadow Press, this situation is at last being remedied."
