"An extremely useful teaching tool for upper-division undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty." Choice "A study that places this one work in its cultural and historial context, and in doing so offers the reader an opening into the understanding of altarpieces as more than 'just' religious pictures." Art Book "Patricia Meilman's book, Titian and the Altarpiece in Renaissance Venice is a monograph on this appalling loss from the corpus of European painting. As one might expect from a revised dissertation, the apparatus occupies almost half the book's 260 pages and offers material not available elsewhere." - The Catholic Historical Review William Hood, Oberlin College
