For Berenson, the story line from the White House remains fuzzy.
Mr. Berenson answers the question thus: "His pictures are the perfect reflex of the Renaissance at its height."
In the Capitol is a fresco painting which Mr. Berenson ascribes to our master.
Mr Berenson ascribes them to Duccio and Fungai respectively.
Finally, Mr. Berenson, with rare insight proclaimed the conception and the spirit of the picture to be Giorgione's.
Mr. Berenson calls attention further to the historical significance of this page from contemporary life and manners.
The attribution to Titian is, however, not disputed by the two severest of modern critics, Morelli and Berenson.
Crowe and Cavalcaselle, supplemented by the writings of Berenson, should be consulted as to this painter.
