It is appropriate therefore that a whole book should be devoted to this single painting - a painting whose subject is both particularized and universal.
The painting is reproduced in all its glory in this magnificent book, bringing the reader face to face with its splendor, its rich colors and its incredible expressiveness. Shown in a series of specially commissioned photographs, it is illustrated first as a whole, and then in a series of enlarged details that magnify every minute embellishment and brushstroke.
