Giovanni Bellini. By Roger E. Fry. (The Unicorn Press. 2s.

6d.)—This second volume of the "Artist's Library" is an excellent piece of work. Mr. Fry tells us just what we want to know about Bellini and his family without letting the sur- roundings swamp the master. The criticisms, technical and Eesthetic, are alike admirable in their clearness and reasonable- ness, and the fact that the author is a painter himself gives this work a value that the art criticisms of merely literary critics seldom possess. The illustrations are good, and give a compre- hensive view of the work of Bellini.
