Key monuments of the Italian Renaissance by Laurie Adams( Book )

9 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The central idea of the book, which is ideal for one-semester courses, is to include fewer works and artists in greater detail to achieve a better understanding and appreciation of the art, the artists, and the period. The art, the artists, and the social and cultural background are covered in chronological order from the fourteenth to the sixteenth century - from Giotto through Titian, from early Renaissance to Mannerism. Here is concise, reliable, and up-to-date information, analysis, and interpretation of major works of art from different methodological points of view such as style, iconography, biography, and context. Works have been chosen for their artistic significance and for their expression of social, cultural, and political relevance."--Jacket
