About this Item

310+ pages. Hardcover with dustjacket. Good condition. Dustjacket has some tears repaired by tape. ART. The great fresco-cycle of the Legend of St. Francis is among the most celebrated of all the artistic movements of Italy: it is also one of the most controversial, for modern scholarship has thrown doubt upon the tradition handed down by Vasari that the frescoes are early works of Giotto. In this comprehensively illustrated book, Professor Smart offers a new study of the frescos-of their religious content and iconography, of their stylistic character and of the problem of their authorship-and in proposing an alternative interpretation of Giott's early development he argues that the Vasarian tradition has stood in the way of a true understanding of the unique qualities of the ASSISI CYCLE. Includes 110 Plates. Includes an Index. (Key Words: Art, Italian Artists, Saint Francis of Assisi, Giotto Di Bondone, Upper Church Of San Francesco, Vasari). Bookseller Inventory # 47973X1
