The history of Venetian painting in the 16th century, analyzed by leading scholars of the period in terms of specific themes, techniques, relationships with the other arts, with a fine selection of illustrations.
[The 1500s / Vol. III] The history of Venetian painting in the 1500s, analyzed in terms of particular aspects ranging from the relationship between painting and the other arts, like illuminated manuscripts, mosaics, textile works, to specific themes connected with the period and particularly pertinent technical information.
The authors offer a complete overview of the dynamics of the arts, in the belief that the modes of manifestation of the different activities, based on functional differences of the results and radical differences in terms of equipment, easily led to an isolation of practices that could be broken only by the greatest masters.
The volume also includes a complete Biographical Dictionary of the Artists, including documentation on each and an essential bibliography for further reference. New attributions and additions to individual catalogues are included here, making this an indispensable philological companion to the first two volumes.
