LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
Thames and Hudson, London, publishers, 1963. hardcover, 6¼" x 8½", with dust jacket. Ours is an ex-library copy in transparent protective covering, with usual stamps, stickers, barcode etc. VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD unclipped dust jacket. Fifty-one colour plates including 'St Jerome in his Study' (Antonello da Messina) as frontispiece, and 200 b&w plates. The authors follow the growth of the Renaissance to the Florence of 1420 and the artistic ferment there, to the fascinating regional schools of Seina, Umbria, Mantua and Rome - the magnet for every creative ambition through the influence of the patron-Popes. Architecture, sculpture, painting, book illustration and all the arts of design underwent the same transformation. This is the first complete and straightforward survey of the arts in Europe during this period.
