With a freshness and breadth of approach that sets Italian Renaissance art in its context, this book explores why works were created and who commissioned the palaces, cathedrals, paintings and sculptures. It covers Rome, Florence, Venice and the Veneto, Assisi, Siena, Milan, Pavia, Genoa, Padua, Mantua, Verona, Ferrara, Urbino and Naples. Chapters are grouped into four chronological parts, allowing for sustained examination of individual cities in different periods. ‘Contemporary Scene’ boxes provide fascinating glimpses of daily life and ‘Contemporary Voice’ boxes quote from painters and writers of the time. Accessible and beautifully presented with over 700 mostly colour images, this book is a definitive work on a key period of western art and culture.
