The authors focus is on the most important and innovative artists and their principal works, with a clear emphasis on selectivity and understanding. Italian Renaissance Art also focuses on style and iconography, and on art and artists, incorporating different methodological approaches to create a wider understanding and appreciation of the art. Distinguishing features of this text include: * Over 400 illustrations, with 215 in full color, are integrated with the text, and large enough to properly view. * In depth coverage on the most important and innovative artists and their principle works throughout Italy. * Side boxes that provide additional material on techniques, biographical data, descriptions of artistic media, as well as necessary background information are used in every chapter. * Controversy boxes introduce some of the ongoing scholarly quarrels among Renaissance art historians. * Maps, plans, and diagrams are also included throughout. A historical chronology, a full glossary of art-historical terms, and a select bibliography are also included at the end of the text.
