A must for all students of Renaissance art history.
on 30 August 2015
If you want to understand how people in the Renaissance thought, then you need to study the subjects they did. It is a great shame that the classics are not taught in school any longer. However, the Penguin Classics series goes a long way to fill the gaps for those wanting to understand the way art develops. Ovid's works are other key texts because they inspired so much of the work of the Renaissance masters before the Counter Reformation.
This book replaces my falling to bits version I've had for years.
