Italian Renaissance Art
Presents a survey of Italian Renaissance art, focusing on the principal works of the most important and innovative artists, along with information on women artists, Mannerism, and the late Renaissance period.
Adams (art history, John Jay College, City U. of New York) has produced an undergraduate textbook which contains a manageable history of the Italian Renaissance; it's about half the size of the well known text by Frederick Hartt. Adams begins with the early precursors Cimabue and Nicola Pisano before turning to Duccio and Giotto, who are covered in depth. The book concludes with the beginning of Mannerism, which is not covered. Numerous inset boxes provide short political histories, biographies of important thinkers and writers, and describe painting techniques. The frequent, good quality illustrations are mostly in color.
