Overview

Venetian painting grew out of Byzantine art, and its opulence and sensuousness clearly differentiate it from the more intellectual art of Florence. In this lively history of the Venetian school, John Steer traces its development between the fourteenth and eighteenth centuries. From the Bellinis onwards, Venetian artists used light, space and, above all, color to dramatic effect, as seen in the fifteenth- and sixteenth-century works of Titian, Tintoretto and Veronese, and, in the eighteenth century, Canaletto, Tiepolo and Guardi. 175 illus., 33 in color.

"A scholarly and careful account...Quite plainly he loves his subject and has deep knowledge of it." --The Times Educational Supplement

"Should be of invaluable help to the student." --The Scotsman
