Giulio Romano

Hardcover (Print)
Not Available on


The Giulio Romano exhibition in Mantua in 1989 was the occasion for the publication, for the first time, of a full and thorough account of Guilio's art. A hugely successful catalogue, Giulio Romano brought to the public's attention the extraordinary range of the artist's activities and placed his work within the context of the court of the Gonzagas, for whom he worked. This lavishly illustrated book, selected from the original Italian catalogue by the late Manfredo Tafuri, brings together essays by a distinguished team of scholars to provide a full picture of Giulio's activities as an architect.
