This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: "Joost-Gaugier's book makes a major contribution to our thinking about Italian Renaissance art. Her fresh ideas will be useful for students as well as for advanced scholars." - Joseph Manca, Rice University "Superseding earlier textbooks full of oversimplified description, Professor Joost-Gaugier's book teaches students how to read and discuss art. Its central insight--that the Renaissance was an idea that motivated artists of the time--is supported by the author's sensitive interpretations." - Luba Freedman, Hebrew University of Jerusalem "An engaging introduction to the subject, with a welcome emphasis on art's formal language. Students will relish Joost-Gaugier's descriptions of Renaissance paintings that evoke their luscious colors, and her erudite narrative enlivened by a personal perspective." - Mary D. Garrard, Professor Emerita, American University. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: Richly illustrated, and featuring detailed descriptions of works by pivotal figures in the Italian Renaissance, this enlightening volume traces the development of art and architecture throughout the Italian peninsula in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries.

  • A smart, elegant, and jargon-free analysis of the Italian Renaissance – what it was, what it means, and why we should study it
  • Provides a sustained discussion of many great works of Renaissance art that will significantly enhance readers’ understanding of the period
  • Focuses on Renaissance art and architecture as it developed throughout the Italian peninsula, from Venice to Sicily  
  • Situates the Italian Renaissance in the wider context of the history of art
  • Includes detailed interpretation of works by a host of pivotal Renaissance artists, both well and lesser known

From the Back Cover: With detailed interpretations of works by pivotal figures in the Italian Renaissance, this enlightening volume offers a new interpretation of this period, during which some artists emerged as thoughtful intellectuals devoted to experimentation (the avant-garde) while others repeat older themes again and again (the conservatives). Guided by one of the world’s leading art history scholars, readers embark on a journey of discovery that will transform their understanding of this important period in the history of civilization. Eschewing jargon and lengthy footnotes, the author frames the aesthetics of the Renaissance as a struggle between irrational, intuitive perception and rational, proto-scientific tendencies, showing how these diverging imperatives form a leitmotif that profoundly deepens our understanding of the Renaissance and why Italy was preeminent in this period.

This richly illustrated work teaches its readers a visual method for ‘reading’ and making sense of works of art in order to understand their development and fully appreciate their visual significance. The events that occurred in the world of Italian art in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries reveal the breathtaking modernity of Renaissance art and debunk the old-fashioned idea that Renaissance art is ‘old fashioned’. It will even transform our understanding of today’s art world.
