This new, illustrated catalogue deals with artists the bulk of whose work falls within the first half of the fifteenth century, around 1400-1460, predominantly in Tuscany. Yet within this relatively narrow chronological and geographical confine we find some of the most influential and innovative painters of the Italian Renaissance, including Masaccio, Fra Angelico, Pisanello and Uccello. An essay by Susanna Avery-Quash traces the growth of interest in early Italian painting in Britain.
Every picture has been re-examined with conservators, and new information gleaned about its technique and condition. All the paintings are reproduced full-page, in colour, together with many details, comparative illustrations and reconstructions.
