Recent Aquisitions...

Post  Adhemar on Fri Dec 18, 2009 7:22 pm

So, I was at the Yale bookstore yesterday, and picked up the following:

The Likeness of the King: A Prehistory of Portraiture in Late Medieval France.

It looks to be a pretty interesting read, apparently about whether that portrait of Jean le Bon in the Louvre is really the fist 'portrait' painting. I'll post a review when I'm done reading it.
