Piero della Francesca by Tatjana Pauli( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 240 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 160 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

"More than any other Italian fifteenth-century painter, Piero della Francesca was responsible for the development of Renaissance painting in Florence, and its crucial dissemination throughout Italy. His work represents a synthesis of Italian painting, with its focus on perspective and space - and Netherlandish painting, which stressed light and natural phenomena, and he was one of the first to develop architectural and spacial perspective." "This beautifully illustrated book offers a full-scale chronological and critical account of Piero's paintings. From his formative years in Florence, when he worked with Domenico Veneziano in the church of Sant'Egidio, to his seminal mid-career work in the church of San Francesco in Arezzo, and his later work in Rome, Perugia, and Urbino, these pages capture Piero's extraordinary palette and the remarkably expressive faces of his subjects."--BOOK JACKET
