Joseph A. Crowe (1825 - 1896) and Giovanni Battista Cavalcaselle (1819 – 1897) were the joint authors of such books as Early Flemish Painters (1856), their first work.

Other works include History of Painting in Italy (3 vol., 1864-1866). Other important works by Crowe and Cavalcaselle are The Life of Titian (London, 1876), and The Life of Raphael (London, 1883).

A New History of Painting in Italy from the Second to the Sixteenth Century (1864–1871, 5 vols.).

Together he and Crowe issued biographies Titian: His Life and Times (1877) and Raphael: His Life and Works (1882–85). The division of labour in the partnership was seamless; though Crowe produced most of the final edited text, Cavalcaselle's eye and notes, and, in the age before photographic reproductions, his quick sketches of compositions, were essential.

Crowe and Cavalcaselle's History of Painting was under revision by Crowe up to the time of his death, and then by S. A. Strong (d. 1904) and Langton Douglas, who in 1903 brought out first and second volumes of Murray's new six-volume edition; the third volume, edited by Langton Douglas, appeared in 1909. A reprint of the original edition, brought up to date by annotations by Edward Hutton's, was published by Dent in 3 volumes in 1909.
