[The 1400s] The development of Venetian painting in the 15th century, through analysis of local output. The work outlines a geo-historical profile of the moment of transition between the late Middle Ages and the Renaissance, offering a useful tool for evaluation and conservation of an undervalued and at times even unknown artistic heritage.
The authors have divided the study into territorial sections: Venice, Padua, Treviso, Belluno, Vicenza and Verona, analyzing similarities, specificities, contrasts, as well as the relationships with architecture and sculpture.
The thematic section, on the other hand, covers particular aspects: from illuminated manuscripts to the tradition of mosaic work in Venice, painting techniques to collecting to devotional painting.
The fine illustrations include materials never previously published.
