Renaissance Florence: The Invention of a New Art
The Renaissance was one of the greatest and most glorious periods in all art, and Florence was its center. From Botticelli to Michelangelo, from superb painting, goldwork, and sculpture to dazzling churches and palaces, no city has achieved greater splendor or produced more brilliant art.
The renowned scholar A. Richard Turner presents this popular art in a remarkably fresh and concise manner. In writing both erudite and spirited, he takes readers on a chronological and thematic tour of this extraordinary time and place. Unlike most books on Florence, this one provides a richly detailed context for the making of art, its display, and its meaning.
