How To Read Italian Renaissance Painting

How to Read Italian Renaissance Painting guides readers through the worlds of major artists including Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, and Raphael. Zuffi presents us with a collection of 180 recognisable works created during the Renaissance era and uses them to describe key ideas, from perspective and grace to symbolism, in order to unravel some of the mystery behind this well-loved time in art history. The result is the perfect introduction into the Renaissance period with artist biographies and snippets of daily life from the era.

“The breadth of artists found here is impressive, and many well-known paintings are described. This unique approach to the subject can be seen as introductory for students, as well as of interest to the specialist and general reader. It is recommended for most Italian Renaissance collections and as a complementary text for art history students.”
