Robertson Dean narrates this audiobook in an authoritative style that suits the high culture of its subject. He delivers an appropriately high-brow tone--for this audiobook may be categorized as appealing mostly to those in the specialized world of art appreciation, authentication, and the evaluation of provenance. The author, a French "Eye," takes the listener through the stages and obligations of his expertise by defining how he goes about identifying paintings and line drawings. Spotting fakes can be more difficult than a lay person imagines. The larger appeal of this audiobook is its focus on Italian, specifically Florentine, art. The listener receives an expert's view of the worthwhile and the famous. A.D.M. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2019]
