I'm glad to see you find my library interesting! You have an impressive collection on California yourself.
I just read & reviewed The Uncommon Reader, and then realized you had a "hot review," which was quite good. Gave it a thumbs up! What a fun book, eh?
I have just been browsing your fascinating list of art history books. What a great selection! I see we share some favourite people: Daniel Silva and Stephen Fry. Who are your favourite artists? Mine are Claude Lorrain, Van Eyck, David Hockney, Cellini and Canova and basically enjoy most European art. I shall add you to my 'interesting' list if you don't mind!

Thanks for flagging me as an interesting library! Fantastic selection you've got there.
Many others listed under individual artists names. My interest for a long time.
Thanks for your good wishes on my dissertation. I am VERY interested in your sources and or thoughts on execution. I too am quite interested in the visual aspects and have produced several articles on the subject.
