Bernard Berenson, the making of a legend

Ernest Samuels with the collaboration of Jayne Newcomer Samuels

Controversy swirls around Bernard Berenson today as it did in his middle years, before and between two world wars. Who "was" this man, this supreme connoisseur of Italian Renassance painting? How did he support his elegant estate near Florence, his Villa I Tatti? What exactly were his relations with the art dealer Joseph Duveen? What part did his wife, Mary, play in his scholarly work and professional career? The answers are to be found in the day-to-day record of his life as he lived it--as reported at first hand in his and Mary's letters and diaries and reflected in the countless personal and business letters they received. His is one of the most fully documented lives of this century. Ernest Samuels, having spent twenty years studying the thousands of letters and other manuscripts, presents his story in absorbing detail.
