Venetian painting in the 14th century, analyzed in terms of geographical zones, investigating the various forms of expression with a striking selection of images.
[The 1300s] The development of Venetian painting in the 14th century, through analysis of local output in different geographical contexts. The work outlines a geo-historical profile of the region in the Middle Ages, 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, from Venice to the individual provinces. The texts analyze similarities, specificities, contrasts, as well as the relationship with architecture and sculpture.
The thematic section, on the other hand, covers particularly important aspects: illuminated manuscripts, fabrics in painting, Franciscan patronage, the presence of Tuscan artists.
Complete with biographical dictionary of the artists and a fine selection of illustrations.
