"The Renaissance" features all the obvious well-known Italian masters such as Fra Angelico, Michelangelo, Masaccio, Titian, Raphael, Botticelli and Leonardo da Vinci. But what makes this book different is that it also covers the great Dutch and German masters, such as Van Eyck, Bosch, Bruegel, Holbein, Durer and the Spanish painter El Greco. It is a rich chronological survey of the splendour and wealth of Renaissance art from the end of the Gothic period to the beginning of the Baroque period (1401-1610). In addition to all the superb paintings, the book also features the best in sculpture and architecture during this period. Carefully designed and illustrated with more than 500 colour illustrations, many of them large-scale reproductions, "The Renaissance" should appeal to everyone interested in this popular period of painting.
