'The challenge is to blend the known "highlights" with the lesser-known treasures – and this volume works well in that regard. Iconic images … sit comfortably with surprise gems.'

'This is a well-priced, useful addition to the canon, which should spur readers to visit the collection whenever possible to engage with the actual works ... Every page I turned revealed a new favourite image, each accompanying essay enhanced and educated.'
