Aimed at informed but non-specialized readers, this book offers a splendidly illustrated monographic summary of the life and main works, with complete descriptive captions, of Bellini.
“Reserve and spontaneity, naturalism and rules, the multiform aspects of the world and the unchanging quiet of the soul make his art one of the most difficult, the most rich, and above all the most subtly lyrical of all time” (C. Semenzato).
Aimed at informed but non-specialized readers, this book offers a monographic summary of the life and work of Bellini.
The short introduction examines the circumstances that led to the emergence and evolution of the artist’s personality. This is followed by a veritable “guided tour” through an imaginary museum of his masterpieces, splendidly illustrated, with complete descriptive captions.
A small anthology of critical and documentary writings and an essential bibliography make the books in this series up-to-date tools for students and art lovers alike.
