M. Paul Muratoff's comprehensive monograph on Fra Angelico, translated from

the Russian by M. E. Law-Gisiko (Frederick Warne, 31s. 6d.) contains the most complete set of reproductions yet published of the work of " it frate bade." Fm Angelico is one of the earliest of the Quattrocento group: for those who cannot visit San Marco where all his works are now collected, these admirable reproductions will bring fresh light to bear upon the greatest years in the history of art.
