Long hailed as one of the most comprehensive and richly detailed chronologies of painting, sculpture and architecture in Renaissance Italy from, this book focuses on works of art, their creators and the circumstances affecting their creation. The book is organized, chronologically, with individual chapters dedicated to developments in different areas or cities, such as Florence, Tuscany, Rome, Venice and Northern Italy. David G. Wilkins has maintained Hartt's distinctive voice and formalist approach while adding contextual detail that will enrich the reader's understanding and reflect the latest thinking in the field.About the Author:
