Book News
New edition of a study of art in Renaissance Italy that sets the art in its context and explores why it was created and who commissioned the palaces and cathedrals, paintings, and sculptures. Aiming to make the familiar seem more intriguing and the unfamiliar more comprensible, Paoletti (art history, Wesleyan U.) and Radke (Renaissance specialist, Syracuse U.) span more than three centuries and cover all regions of Italy, discussing the political and social structures that affected artistic styles. Boxed sections provide glimpses of the daily life of the period as well as quotes directly from the painters and writers themselves. Contains 601 illustrations (201 of which are in color) as well as a time chart. Oversize: 9.5x11.5
