"(...) the interest evinced by The Nude and the Norm is highly welcome." (Marisa Bass, in: caa.reviews, 10 October 2012)

"This diverse collection of essays demonstrates the value of investigating a large topic (the nude) at a specific cultural moment. The findings serve to enrich our understanding of the 'northern nude', and will inform and entertain all scholars of the early modern period." (Amy Orrock, in: Journal of the Northern Renaissance, November 2014, www.northernrenaissance.org/reviews/)
