The authors of the essays in this book take up the often unexplored question of how one's experience, when confronted with Renaissance or Baroque artworks, survives the vicissitudes of time and itself becomes an important element of interpretation. International and interdisciplinary, this volume conducts readers into an ongoing discussion of the value and significance of personal response to works of art. Book jacket.
