Piero Della Francesca : personal encounters by Keith Christiansen( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book tells the story of Italian Renaissance master Piero della Francesca (1411/13-1492) by focusing on four paintings he created over the span of his career. It also provides the first study of his small-scale devotional paintings, including the exquisite 'Saint Jerome and a Donor'. One of today's most prominent scholars narrates the painting's mysterious history and uncovers new insights gleaned during its recent study and restoration. The author explores the relationship between this painting and other works made by Piero for private devotion, including one of his last and most striking paintings, the magnificent 'Madonna di Senigallia'. New research describes the complex relationships between Piero and his patrons and other contemporaries. This book brims with revelatory details about Piero's work that will intrigue both casual readers and devoted fans of the artist, and will form a gateway to a larger analysis of Piero's overall body of work
Piero della Francesca by Eugenio Battisti( Book )

7 editions published in 1992 in Italian and Undetermined and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Piero della Francesca( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Early Renaissance master Piero della Francesca's world-famous portraits of the Duke and Duchess of Urbino, Federico da Montefeltro and Battista Sforza, his atmospheric background landscapes, and his fresco cycle, The Legend of the True Cross, painted for the Basilica of San Francesco in Arezzo, have cemented his fame as one of the greatest artists of the fifteenth century. But Piero was not only an innovative painter and master technician, he was also recognized in his own time as being a talented mathematician who wrote treatises inspired by the ideas of Leon Battista Alberti: it is much to his credit that the system of perspective in Western painting became codified. The apparent humanism of Piero's world, the influence of his Florentine contemporaries Masaccio, Donatello, Filippo Lippi, and not least of all his mentor, Domenico Veneziano, impelled the master's brush to create some of the most meditative images in Western art."--BOOK JACKET

Piero's light : in search of Piero della Francesca : a Renaissance painter and the revolution in art, science, and religion by Larry Witham( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An innovative painter in the early generation of renaissance artists and one of the great enigmas of art history, Piero Della Francesca was also a knowledgable scholar on religious topics and a mathematician who wanted to use perspective and geometry to make painting a "true science." Piero lived in a tumultuous age of princes and popes, soldiers and schisms. A skilled geometer, he was also part of the philosophical revival of platonism, an ancient worldview that would shape our modern revolutions in art, religion, and science. In 'Piero's Light', Larry Witham presents Piero not only as a vivid character in his own time, but as an integral piece of our artistic legacy that takes us from past visions of belief, beauty, and knowledge to a secular age, a time when science is redefining our mental experiences. Although only sixteen of Piero's works survive, few art historians doubt his importance in the renaissance
