I think Elizabeth Cowling does this wellBut I do also like to know how the art world of the time hung together and this book does a great job of bringing that to life My comments above are a bit grudging I am happy to give it 4 stars PS I read this with Google Maps 3D for reference there are so many addresses that I wanted to see how they all linked up
