Overview


Memling, Van Eyck, Antonello da Messina, Raphael, Holbein, Titian, Leonardo . . . these are the greatest names of the Renaissance which symbolize the ultimate in artistic achievement. Whether Italian, Flemish, or German, all were masters of the portrait, a style that was popular and much appreciated during the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. The genius of these artists allowed them to overcome the limits of the genre and inscribe the art of portraiture into the universal history of mankind. Sharply focused, spectacularly reproduced in an extraordinarly large format volume, and featuring meticulously researched illustrations, this beautiful book is the first of its kind to shed light on some of the most familiar images in art history.

I was astonished at the quality of the printing in this book. It really captures every detail. If an art student has great interest in this kind of art, the reproduction is extraordinary for the purpose of study. The collection of portraits contains excellent variety and diversity. The price of this book is well worth the cost, and I regard it as an excellent value.
