This review is from: Craftsman's Handbook (Dover Art Instruction) (Paperback)
A fascinating book and a good insight into medieval and early Italian Renaissance painting techniques. The information is surprisingly easy to rear and Cennino's spirit fills each page. There's not a great deal for the modern artist apart from inspiration, although some of the sections on gilding remain surprisingly relevant. A rite of passage for any serious painter. I'd like to update my rating but I accidentally clicked three stars and don't seem to be able to edit it!
