Rate this:
"A glance at the pages of Art in Renaissance Italy shows at once its freshness and breadth of approach, which includes: How and why works at art, buildings, prints, and other kinds of art came to be; how men and women of the Renaissance regarded art and artists; and why works of Renaissance art look the way they do, and what this means to us." "Unlike other books on the subject, this one covers not only Florence and Rome. Here too are Venice and the Veneto, Assisi, Siena, Milan, Pavia, Padua, Mantua, Verona, Ferrara, Urbino, and Naples - each governed in a distinctly different manner, every one with its own political and social structures that inevitably affected artistic styles." "Spanning more than three centuries, the narrative brings to life the rich tapestry of Italian Renaissance society and the art works that are its enduring legacy. Throughout, special features evoke and document the people and places of this dynamic age."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
