The Cambridge Companion to Giotto serves as an introduction to one of the most important masters of early Italian art. Providing an overview of his life and career, this 2003 volume offers essays by leading authorities on the critical reception of the artist, an analysis of workshop practices of the period, the complexities of religious and secular patronage, Giotto's innovations in painting and architecture, and close readings of his most celebrated work, the frescoes of the Arena Chapel in Padua. Designed to serve as an essential resource for students of late medieval and early Renaissance Italy, The Cambridge Companion to Giotto also provides a chronology of the artist's life and a select but comprehensive bibliography.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This introduction to one of the most important masters of early Italian art provides an overview of Giotto's life and career and essays by leading authorities on topics including critics, workshop practices, and patronage.' The Times Higher Education Supplement
"...the book meets its stated goals and even surpasses them in flashes of brilliance. That a team of authors this talented and diverse has appeared together is a point to celebrate...a newly conceived and broader portrait of Giotto the artist, a man whom we are still far from knowing intimately." -CAA Reviews, Thomas J. Loughman, Phoenix Art Museum
