Product description

Review

...an art lover's dream come true--a collection of nearly 2,000 images that includes every painting and fresco on display in the Uffizi, the Galleria Palatina of the Pitti Palace, the Accademia and the Duomo, and works from 28 additional museums and churches. Arranged chronologically, the masterpieces are accompanied by seven comprehensive essays by art historian Ross King, as well as shorter discussions by art history professor Anja Grebe of the University of Freiburg in Germany.
It's fascinating to see these treasures of the Western world collected in one volume, with page after page of magnificence, including the works of Uccello, da Vinci, Correggio, Titian, Michelangelo and more. You won't have a better tour unless you visit the city itself--and even then, reading this book first would be worthwhile. ""BookPage"""

"For 800 years Florence, Italy, has been a sacred city whose very walls breathe beauty. In vivid essays and more than 2,000 lush images, this glorious book covers the great collections of the Uffizi, the Pitti Palace, the Accademia and the Duomo, plus key works in 28 of the city's additional museums and churches. The lively text explains Florentine politics, patronage, street life, banking, international trade and the effect of its wars, plagues and religious squabbles. Fascinating." ""Star Tribune"""

"You needn't travel to Florence to tour the masterpieces created by some of the world's greatest artists. "Florence: The Paintings & Frescoes: 1250 to 1743" by Ross King and Anja Grebe brings more than 2,000 images of them to you, along with a comprehensive guide" ""The Sacramento Bee"""

The paintings and frescoes of the birthplace of the Renaissance get a lavish, full-color treatment in this new book from Canadian historian and novelist Ross King, whose previous work includes "Brunelleschi's Dome: The Story of the Great Cathedral in Florence...".If you're looking for a gorgeous coffee-table book, this one is hard to beat." ""Austin American-Statesman"""

"The next best thing to a Tuscan sightseeing trip is a tour through the pages of "Florence: The Paintings & Frescoes, 1250-1743..".which opens the doors of the Uffizi, the Accademia, the Duomo and countless Florentine churches to the armchair traveler." ""Newsday"""
