Adrian Stokes (1902 - 1972) was a British writer and painter, known principally as an influential art critic. He was also a published poet. This book was originally published in 1949.
Giorgione (died 1510 37-38 years of age) was an Italian painter of the Venetian school during the High Renaissance, who died in his thirties. He is known for the elusive poetic quality of his work, though only about six surviving paintings are firmly attributed to him.
