The artworks are analyzed geometrically and placed in their historical context. The notes on visiting the art described make the volume the perfect companion for a study trip to Rome. A chapter on the principles of perspective geometry and a collection of exercises make the book a wonderful resource for a module on perspective in a geometry or art history course.
