“The art of Giulio Romano proves to have managed to combine utterly contrasting aspects, offering human fantasy new means with which to give permanent form to the dreams and nightmares of the mind” (E.H. Gombrich).
Aimed at informed but non-specialized readers, this book offers a monographic summary of the life and work of Giulio Romano.
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.
