Italian sculpture of the Renaissance has long suffered in comparison with the admiration enjoyed by Italian painting of the same period. Such depreciation is, in Eric Maclagan’s opinion, eminently unjust; and with the equipment of a well-grounded student of the Renaissance, he devotes the present work to placing the sculpture in its proper light.
