From the Publisher
"A clearly written, straightforward account of the story of Italian Renaissance art from its origins to Mannerism. The bulk of the material centers around central Italian painting, as it should, but other important, smaller centers are also included. The discussion of the various art forms is nicely balanced . I especially liked the sidebars which add necessary material—historical, literary, technical and so forth—to the text without encumbering it . This is a very good book which should furnish us with the new and useable text we have been waiting for. I would certainly use it in my classroom."
—Bruce Cole, Distinguished Professor, Chairman, department of the history of art, Indiana University
”This sensibly selective and well-written introduction to Italian Renaissance art covers the main centers throughout Italy and describes the major artists and their works from different critical and methodological points of view. The large-format illustrations make this text particularly useful.”
—The late James Beck, Professor of Art History, Columbia University
