Honestly, I didn't get very far, but it wasn't improving. Here's how it begins: "Some paintings are steeped in mystery. Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa is perhaps the most famous example." The plodding prose is bad enough, but it was a short & completely useless chapter on one of my favorite Veroneses - speculating on the "subconscious motivations" behind the pentimenti visible on x-ray - that made me stop reading. "Was Veronese subconsciously making a statement about his own inner conflicts?" No. And Cupid does NOT represent the Holy Office. The speculations were so dumb that I refused to keep reading.
