Understanding Italian Renaissance Painting : A Guide to the Artists, Ideas and Key Works Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Filled with great masterpieces by such artists as Botticelli, Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo, Masaccio, Piero della Francesca, Mantegna and Titian, 'Understanding Italian Renaissance Painting' takes a journey into their world.

As in the acclaimed and innovative How to Read a Painting, each spread uses an important painting as a way to explain a key concept, with numerous large details.

Here, 180 works illuminate key ideas in Renaissance painting, from perspective and the golden section to grace and symbolism.

In addition, there are brief biographies of the major artists.

The result is an original, accessible and affordable volume that offers an introduction into the art and culture of the Italian Renaissance.
