About this title
Undoubtedly one of the most accomplished architects of the Renaissance, Andrea Palladio (1508-1580) is also the most widely imitated. Drawing inspiration from classical architecture, he created harmoniously proportioned villas and palaces in the Italian Veneto region. The influence of his work was wide-ranging, inspiring stately homes across Europe and America, including Thomas Jefferson's Monticello. Because of the extent of the impact of his work, it is difficult to determine which buildings are true Palladios those actually designed by him and completed in his lifetime. Andrea Palladio: The Complete Illustrated Works catalogs the body of work truly belonging to Palladio. All 66 works definitively attributed to Palladio are lavishly illustrated here with over 250 contemporary photographs by Pino Guidolotti, and accompanied by extended captions that provide historical and architectural references and document their current condition. The author has also included references from Palladio's famous treatise The Four Books of Architecture. With a brilliant introduction by architectural historian Howard Burns and a comprehensive bibliography of works on Palladio edited by Almut Goldhahn, this beautifully written and sumptuously illustrated compendium is a must for architectural enthusiasts and historians alike.
Pino Guidolotti was born in Verona in 1947. In the early 1970s he attended a set design course at the Fine Arts Academy of Bologna. His acquaintances and friends from that time turned out to be of fundamental importance for his future development as a photographer: Paolo Monti (to whom he became an assistant), Romeo Martinez in Paris, and Ernst Gombrich in London. Guidolotti's photography features subjects as varied as fashion, portraiture, sculpture, and architecture, and he has been published in major international magazines. He has also illustrated art books such as A. Rosenauer's, Donatello. L'opera completa (Milan 1993) and R. Wittkower's, Bernini (Milan 1990, London 1997).
Born in Cicenza in 1961, Guido Beltramini is the director of the Centro Internazionale de Studi di Architettura "Andrea Palladio," Vicenza, and a professor at the University of Ferrara. He has edited several works: a catalogue of drawings by the 18th-century Palladio follower Ottone Calderari (Venice 1999), the catalogue for the exhibitions on Carlo Scarpa (Milan 2000), with Kurt Foster and Paola Marini, and the special issue of the Quaderni della Scuola Superiore de Pisa dedicated to digital models in architectural studies (Pisa 2000) with Marco Gaiani. Together with Howard Burns and Marco Gaiani, he has also devised and made several CD-ROMS: Le fabbriche e i disegni di Andrea Palladio (1996), Andrea Palladio. Le ville (1997), Palladio and the Veneto (1999), and Palladio e Vicenza (2001).
