The Venetian Painters of the Renaissance, With an Index to Their Works is one of the most influential books on art history in the United States. Bernard Berenson was the foremost authority on Renaissance art. This was the first in a series of highly successful books outlining his approach to art collecting.

Berenson began with Venetian Renaissance painters because Venetian painting represented the lifeblood of the Renaissance more than any other style or place. In an entertaining and concise introductory essay, he explains the extraordinary achievements of Venetian painters.

The Venetian Painters of the Renaissance, With an Index to Their Works begins systematically, with chapters on the Value of Venetian Art, The Church and Painting and The Renaissance. This is typical of Berenson, who was known for having both impeccable taste and the ability to discuss art pragmatically. He defines Venetian art and then situates it as springing forth from the Church.

The book includes discussion and lists of works by major painters like Lotto, Titian, Tintoretto and Veronese, but it also devotes chapters to lesser known old masters. Finally, the book's index summarizes the known facts about all of the paintings by the Venetians. This is a significant resource for collectors and historians.

Remarkably, Berenson actually viewed all of the paintings indexed in the book, other than a pair of paintings located in Russia. It is obvious that this mastery of the subject contributes greatly to the book's readability. The Venetian Painters of the Renaissance, With an Index to Their Works is a tour de force explanation of Renaissance art.
