Art and Architecture in Italy 1250-1400, Paperback

Art and Architecture in Italy 1250-1400 Paperback

Part of the The Yale University Press Pelican History of Art Series series


The 14th century in Italian art is a very rich one, and Professor White's book gives architecture equal weight with painting and sculpture.

The story of the Gothic style and the prehistory of the Renaissance is given: all the facts are related, but also the works of art are described with insight and for their own sakes, and not simply as data for fitting into schemes and theories.

Among the great names are those of Arnolfo di Cambio, the Pisani, Cavallini, Cimabue, Duccio, Giotto, Simone Martini, and the Lorenzetti; among the buildings S.

Croce, S. Maria Novella, the cathedral and the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence, and the cathedrals of Siena, Orvieto, and Milan, as well as churches, castles, and civic buildings from the Val d'Aosta to Sicily.

The third edition of this work includes colour illustrations and incorporates textual revisions and an updated bibliography.
