- About this book
- Extra (1)
A catalogue of the drawings of the American illustrator Joseph Pennell (1858-1926) at the Uffizi Gallery in Florence. Virtually all those which are reproduced here illustrate the historian Maurice Hewlett’s «The Road in Tuscany. A Commentary». Tireless draftsman, vigorous champion of the power of illustration as opposed to the spreading use of photography, Pennell returned to Tuscany to illustrate Henry James’s «Italian Hours». The catalogue includes essays by A. Brill and S. Neri on Pennell as traveler in Tuscany and on his wife, Elizabeth Robins Pennell, author and journalist.
