Fabulous, elegantly written, intellectual but not stuffy, the best of french style

Review
Kauffmann spins off onto delightful tangents. . . . [He] makes his obsession with this painting and all it represents vivid and visceral.
Los Angeles Times

French historian Kauffmann sweeps readers up in his magnificent obsession for Eugène Delacroixs mural. . . . A masterpiece of investigation, explication, introspection, and narrative, brilliantly illuminating an artists mind and a scholars heart.
Kirkus Reviews

A passionate narrative . . . [a] quiet and insightful meditation on the human skirmish with divinity.
Los Angeles Times
