Art History Professor's Book Earns Wonderful Review



Mary Quinlan-McGrath, professor of art history in the NIU School of Art, has received a wonderful review for her most recent book, Influences: Art, Optics, and Astrology in the Italian Renaissance (University of Chicago Press, released February 2013).

Reviewer Farisa Khalid states that Mary's new book "...is a thoroughly incisive, penetrating look into scientific inquiry and spirituality in 15th and 16th century Italy." She goes on to say "...(the book) clarifies a great deal of complex information in an engaging, accessible way as it takes its reader into that endlessly fascinating period of the Italian Renaissance."

The entire review may be read here.

Congratulations, Mary!
