Masolino da Panicale is a study of the life and works of the early fifteenth-century Florentine artist (active 1423-35), who is best known for his collaboration with Masaccio on the frescos of the Brancacci Chapel of Santa Maria del Carmine, Florence, restored to their original brilliance in 1983-88. This book fills a serious gap in the literature on Italian Renaissance art. Although there have been numerous, recent contributions to the study of Masolino, a detailed monograph has been lacking. Perri Lee Roberts discusses the nature of Masolino's and Masaccio's collaboration, and their styles. She includes up-to-date information about the newly cleaned frescos in the Brancacci Chapel and other works by Masolino, a detailed analysis of his works in chronological order, a discussion of his patrons, and an evaluation of his place in the history of Early Renaissance painting. Two appendices contain all the known documents concerning Masolino, and a catalogue of his accepted, related, and rejected works.
