Focusing on select examples of Italian art spanning roughly four hundred years, Italian Renaissance Art: A Sourcebook explores contextual, explanatory information that is rarely part of general surveys of the period. Artists’ chronologies are at the core of this text providing overviews of artists’ careers with timelines of their activities and commentary on significant works. The book also uniquely incorporates numerous drawings, diagrams, and line arts as a means of allowing the reader to develop a fuller idea of the art of the period, Supporting the artists’ chronologies are chapters devoted to historical notes and a glossary of terms, and concluding chapters offer in–depth information on select examples of Renaissance patrons and cities.
