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<">. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)Reseña del editor:
Spanning more than three centuries, this beautiful and authoritative work brings to life the rich tapestry of Italian Renaissance society and the art works that are its enduring legacy. Fresh and broad in approach, this is the only serious book on the subject to integrate both social and art history for the whole of Italy -- not just Florence, Siena, and Rome.
Art lovers and history students alike will welcome this new edition of a highly regarded work previously issued for the academic market. The art is gorgeous and the contextual discussions -- of Renaissance artists in their world and of Renaissance art in Western art history -- are unmatched.
