"That there is a relation between art and the society in which it is produced has been accepted as axiomatic by a large number of modern historians ... To demonstrate (this) in detail is, however, extraordinarily difficult ... It is therefore an unusual pleasure to find a history of art such as Millard Meiss's Painting in Florence and Siena after the Black Death in which the author, while admitting that 'each art has a certain rationale and momentum of its own, ' seeks to illuminate his subject by a careful consideration not only of the literature but also of the economic, social, and political circumstances and events of the period, and in doing so shows a thorough acquaintance with the work of the best recent specialists in these alien fields."--Wallace K. Ferguson, The Art Bulletin (back cover)
