    Five stars

    A bit more on relating the content to the overall historical context, which is already very well done! good use of paintings as information elements, could be a bit more. well translated, only a couple of small imperfections that could have been fixed in a final proofreading phase. (I am a former newspaper editor so I watch for these things.)
