Deeply learned, and with a style all his own, Marco Grassi is as at home with Duccio as he is with Norton Simon; Bronzino as with Bernard Berenson; a painting on his desk as with a Last Supper in Florence's Basilica of Santa Croce. In the Kitchen of Art selects the art conservator and dealer's most memorable contributions to The New Criterion over a span of nearly twenty years. Beginning with a previously unpublished memoir of his own Florentine upbringing, and continuing with in-depth critical discussions of the greats of Italian art along with recollections of the grandest collectors of the twentieth century, this book shows the art world in the round.
