Review:

This lively guide by former Apollo editor Michael Hall marks the 25th anniversary of Lord Samuel of Wych Cross s bequest, a gift of 84 Dutch and Flemish pictures to the City of London. As well as detailing the origins of the collection, which is on display at the Mansion House, it outlines the research that has resulted in several high-profile reattributions. --Apollo magazine, 21 December 2012

Listed under "Alleviating the January Gloom: Exciting exhibitions will cheer art lovers after the festivities end, and a fine selection of new publications will fill the long dark evenings" --Country Life, 26 December 2012
