E begin our review of the public galleries with the Uffizi, as it contains the works of artists from the fifteenth to the seventeenth century, arranged chronologically, and thus illustrating-the History of Art from the revival to the decline. The limits of this volume oblige us to confine our description almost entirely to Tuscan, and especially Florentine Art- and, with rare exceptions, we mention the names or works of celebrated painters or sculptors of other schools. We hope thus to afford some assistance to the foreigner who may not have time to acquire a profound knowledge of the subject, and who, at first sight, may find it difficult to discover any merit, still less beauty, in the early native style of painting. The Corridor extending along three sides of the Uffizi Gallery is lined with sarcophagi, statues, and busts, as well as pictures, all deserving attention, though, with few excep First Corridor. v tions, inferior to the works of art contained in the adjoining rooms.
