These two volumes examine the artistic legacy of three cities that were major centers for the flowering of early Italian Renaissance art and civic culture, and they place the works of art within their social, religious, and cultural contexts. Volume I addresses such issues as the politics and economics of the cities; the major practitioners of painting, sculpture, and architecture; and the relation of art to religious belief. Volume II focuses on major works of art produced in Siena, Florence, or Padua or executed by artists associated with the three cities.
