Opinions are quoted, I need not give a list of them here. The descriptions Of the pictures and sculptures of Giotto are, in all cases, written by myself after careful study of the originals. In no case whatever is an Opinion expressed upon the merit or meaning of a work which I have not personally examined this applies to all pictures and statues mentioned in the essay as well as to those Of Giotto.
The descriptions of Padua, Assisi, and Florence were written on the spot, and the vignettes of the two former towns are reduced from sketches made by myself on purpose for the present work.
