Edited by Carl Brandon Strehlke and Machtelt Brüggen Israëls, The Bernard and Mary Berenson Collection of European Paintings at I Tatti surveys the 149 works assembled by the Berensons for their home in Florence from the late 1890s through the first decades of the twentieth century at the time that they were making their mark on the world as connoisseurs. The catalogue presents a privileged window on the Berensons' intellectual interests through the objects they owned. The entries, written by an international team of art historians, take full advantage of the extensive correspondence from the Berensons' friends, family, and colleagues at I Tatti as well as the couple's diaries and notations on the backs of their vast gathering of photographs. All the entries are lavishly illustrated with full scholarly and technical accountings of the objects. There are also 17 illustrated reconstructions of the original contexts of panel paintings. The catalogue includes essays on the progress of the Berensons' collecting, their love for Siena, the Sienese forger Icilio Federico Joni, the critic Roger Fry, and René Piot's murals at I Tatti, as well as a listing of 94 pictures that were once at I Tatti including donations made to museums in Europe and America.

Bernard Berenson, nato in Lituania da una famiglia ebrea poi trasferitasi a Boston, è stato il più importante storico dell’arte americano del Novecento e uno dei maggiori conoscitori del secolo scorso, tanto che i suoi celebri quattro libri sui pittori del Rinascimento italiano nel mondo anglosassone venivano definiti «i quattro vangeli». L’imponente volume The Bernard and Mary Berenson Collection of European Paintings at I Tatti, a cura di Carl Brandon Strehlke e Machtelt Brüggen Israëls, cataloga scientificamente le 149 opere d’arte raccolte dai Berenson per la loro casa fiorentina a partire dalle fine degli anni Novanta dell’Ottocento e durante i primi decenni del Novecento, proprio mentre Berenson diventa noto in tutto il mondo come conoscitore e storico dell’arte. Attraverso gli oggetti che gli appartennero veniamo così a conoscere gli interessi intellettuali e artistici dei Berenson. Le schede dei dipinti sono state redatte da storici dell’arte di tutto il mondo – tra i quali ricordiamo Giovanni Agosti, Alessandro Angelini, Daniele Benati, Luciano Bellosi, Keith Christiansen, Andrea De Marchi, Everett Fahy, Cecilia Frosinini, Dillian Gordon, Michel Laclotte, Vittoria Romani, Dóra Sallay, Jacopo Stoppa, Marco Tanzi, ecc. – che hanno avuto accesso alla copiosa corrispondenza tra i Berenson e i loro amici, parenti e colleghi come ai diari della coppia e alle notazioni manoscritte sui retri della loro vastissima raccolta di fotografie.
