Overview

Sir John Pope-Hennessy's classic Introduction To Italian Sculpture still stands as the definitive introduction to the subject. Its three volumes bring order to a huge mass of material, and present a magisterial survey of one of the most creative phases in Western art.

Volume I covers the period from 1150 to 1400. The sculptors dealt with include Nicola and Giovanni Pisano, Arnolfo di Cambio, Andrea and Nino Pisano, Lorenzo Ghiberti and Jacopo della Quercia. The monuments illustrated include the great Pisano pulpits, the facades of the cathedrals of Siena, Florence and Orvieto, Milan Cathedral and S. Petronio at Bologna, the Scaliger tombs at Verona, the Angevin monuments in Naples, and Ghiberti's famous door for the Baptistery in Florence. The new edition of this work provides an accessible introduction to the subject for scholars, students and all lovers of Italian art. At the same time its scholarly notes make it a valuable reference work. Each volume in the set of three can be enjoyed in its own right.
