KEY BENEFIT: A glance at the pages of Art in Renaissance Italy shows at once its freshness and breadth of approach, which includes thorough explanation into how and why works of art, buildings, prints, and other forms of visual production came to be. The authors also discuss how men and women of the Renaissance regarded art and artists, why works of Renaissance art look the way they do, and what this means to us. Unlike other books on the subject, this one covers not only Florence and Rome, but also Venice and the Veneto, Assisi, Siena, Milan, Pavia, Padua, Mantua, Verona, Ferrara, Urbino, and Naples–each governed in a distinctly different manner, every one with individual, political, and social structures that inevitably affected artistic styles. Spanning more than three centuries, the narrative brings to life the rich tapestry of Italian Renaissance society and the art that is its enduring legacy. Throughout, special features, including textual sources from the period and descriptions of social rituals, evoke and document the people and places of this dynamic age. The book covers the art and artists of Italy during the Renaissance–Florence, Rome, Milan, Venice, Naples and other regions, from the 13th through the 15th centuries. For Renaissance art enthusiasts and others interested in the art of Italy’s Renaissance.

From the Publisher:

"Art mattered in the Renaissance... People expected painting, sculpture, architecture, and other forms of visual art to have a meaningful effect on their lives," write the authors of this importand new look at Italian Renaissance art. A glance at the pages of Art in Renaissance Italy shows at once its freshness and breadth of approach, which includes thorough explanation into how and why works of art, buildings, prints, and other kinds of art came to be. Also discussed is how men and women of the Rena issance regarded art and artists as well as why works of Renaissance art look the way they do, and what this means to us. Unlike other books on the subject, this one covers not only Florence and Rome, but also covers Venice and the Veneto, Assisi, Siena, Milan, Pavia, Padua, Mantua, Verona, Ferrara, Urbino, and Naples -- each governed in a distinctly different manner, every one with its own political and social structures that inevitably affected artistic styles. Spanning more than three centuries, the narrative brings to life the rich tapestry of Italian Renaissance society and the art works that are its enduring legacy. T hroughout, special features evoke and document the people and places of this dynamic age.

From the Back Cover:

Key Benefit: This book accounts the art and artists of Italy during the time period from the mid-thirteenth century to c. 1600. Key Topics: Unlike similar books, which tend to overemphasize Florentine art, this book introduces new material and more extensive discussion of artists from Milan, Venice, Naples and other regions, in addition to coverage of the innovations and critical importance of Florentine art. The authors consider the times, places and conditions in which artists worked in concert with issues of style, thus broadening the scope of coverage to include the dynamics of interaction between artist and patron; artist and topological tradition.
