BERENSON, Bernard
(1865–1959)
   The American art historian who, although never involved in Etruscan art history, in spite of his long residence near Florence at his villa I Tatti, had an implicit influence on many directions of art history that formed a general background, particularly for Anglo-American scholarship. This influence was centered on the attribution of art to particular masters, an approach he applied sometimes controversially to the Italian Renaissance.
