The book provides insight into understanding the socio-political structure that governed a city- state of the Serenissima (Venice) successfully for so long.

5.0 out of 5 stars well-written, readable work on High Venetian art 23 Sept. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is a great introdcution to Venetian art of the Renaissance, through its views of the major artists of the time (the Bellinis, Titian, Pollaiuolo, Veronese, etc.), but it incorporates enough social, religious, and political history that one not only gets a more-well rounded view of the Venice of the Renaissance, but also is not bogged down in excessive stylistic analysis. This makes Brown's work a wonderful introduction to the Venetian novice, which many amateur art-historians caught up with Florence and Rome (myself included) tend to be.

5.0 out of 5 stars great intro to renaissance Venice 6 Feb. 2011
By M. Busch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I read this book just prior to visiting the Boston Museum of Fine Arts about 2 years ago to see their special exhibit on three very important artists in Renaissance Venice: Titian, Tintoretto and Veronese. The book was a great help in understanding the period and helped me to appreciate the exhibit and what the artists were trying to show. I wish I had read the book before visiting Venice itself. But, having read the book again after viewing the exhibit at the MFA, I know what I must see the next time I visit Venice, a truly unique and amazing place.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beyond my expectations 14 Nov. 2013
By Mary Ann - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Beautifully presented, well-written, authoritative -- a fine companion to Fortini Brown's "Private Lives in Renaissance Venice" which I bought earlier.

3.0 out of 5 stars excellent but overpriced at $40 5 Aug. 2013
By anonymous - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Brown's text provides an excellent thematic introduction to Renaissance Venice and is a popular text in university courses on the topic. Presumably this explains why Pearson, the academic publisher, has bought the rights and is now publishing it at more than double the original list price. I recommend buying one of the many available used copies. The text has not changed since the first editions published in 1997, by Abrams in the US and Weidenfeld & Nicolson in the UK (the latter under the title "The Renaissance in Venice").
