The first great artist of the Quattrocento period of the Italian Renaissance, Masaccio would have an incredible impact on the course of Western art, in spite of his untimely death at the age of twenty-six. He is noted for his skill in imitating nature, recreating lifelike figures and his unprecedented use of chiaroscuro and three-dimensionality. Preparing the way for Leonardo and Michelangelo, Masaccio transformed the direction of Italian painting, moving it away from the idealisations of Gothic art and favouring the depiction of a more profound, natural and humanist world. Delphi’s Masters of Art Series presents the world’s first digital e-Art books, allowing readers to explore the works of great artists in comprehensive detail. This volume presents Masaccio’s complete works in beautiful detail, with concise introductions, hundreds of high quality images and the usual Delphi bonus material.
