Synopsis: Shows the background of paintings by Sienese artists
From Library Journal:
This volume is the catalog that accompanied the Metropolitan Museum of Art's exhibition of 15th-century Sienese painting last winter. The artists represented are not widely known because of their secondary importance to the historical development of Italian Renaissance art. Although the reproductions are numerous and engaging, the introductory essays presuppose some knowledge of Italian art and political history, making the volume less accessible to general readers than Glenn Andres et al.'s recent The Art of Florence ( LJ 9/15/89). The annotations to the plates summarize previous scholarship and present the authors' opinions in this still-evolving area of study. While this book is an important addition for research collections, it may be considered optional for smaller libraries and general collections.
