A very insightful book and a good memento of the exhibition.
Review by Markus
I really enjoyed the Chiaroscuro exhibition and am so glad I am able to purchase this memento. The images in the book are well-sized and provide just enough detail and the accompanying text gives plenty of insight into the pieces and Chiaroscuro's methods. A very well put together book and well worth the money if you are an admirer of Chiaroscuro's work.
