Over het boek:
‘A remarkable book and a work of impressive scholarship yet eminently readable, helped along by the author’s characteristic light touch, the snapshots of the major players and the quality of the illustrations. As a detective story it takes some beating. Chronicling Simon’s discoveries, the fascinating people he met on his journey, and the exotic locations he ended up in, his role in piecing it all together is a story in itself’
John Falding, Formerly Arts Reporter, Financial Times
‘A magnificent journey through time. An amazing book from first page to last’
Francoise Joulie, Curator of Drawings, Musée du Louvre, Paris
