“Much that Potts writes here…on Winckelmann’s intellectual origins, his career as a writer, the sources of his ideas about environmental influence and about the superiority of Greek civilization will be found very useful.” ― London Review of Books Published On: 2007-01-04

“That a new edition of Winckelmann’s long-since classic main work reminds…[his] art fantasies deserves respect.” ― Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung Published On: 2006-06-21

“Mallgrave’s fluent and perceptive translation of Winckelmann’s History establishes a most worthy alternative [to Henry Lodge’s mid-19th-century version], especially when coupled with Alex Potts’s excellent, informative introduction to this seminal work. [This] volume is a must for all those interested in the evolution of art history as a humanistic discipline.” ― Choice Published On: 2006-06-01
