Featuring over 150 artists from Italy, Germany, the Netherlands, and Spain, this lavishly produced and highly illustrated work of art is the first book to comprehensively cover in one volume the two centuries of European Art between 1401 and 1610 known as the Renaissance.
The Renaissance features all the obvious well-known Italian masters such as Fra Angelico, Michelangelo, Masaccio, Titian, Raphael, Botticelli and Leonardo da Vinci. But what makes this book special is that it also covers the great Dutch and German masters, such as Van Eyck, Bosch, Bruegel, Holbein, Durer and the Spanish painter El Greco.
It is a rich chronological survey of the splendour and wealth of Renaissance art from the end of the Gothic period to the beginning of the Baroque period (1401-1610). In addition to all the superb paintings this book also features the best in sculpture and architecture during this period.
Superbly designed and illustrated with more than 500 colour illustrations, many of them large-scale reproductions, The Renaissance is a truly sumptuous book that will appeal to everyone interested in this popular period of painting.
