La natura morta in Italia

€ 250,00

This book offers the largest existing repertory of still life painting in Italy, a subject that has met with growing interest among art historians, collectors, antiquarians and the general public in recent decades.

[The still life in Italy] Leading experts have contributed to make this publication the most up-to-date overview of the theme of the still life, a genre too long considered “minor”. The book also offers new stimuli for further research.
After an in-depth introductory section the volume approaches some of the central issues in the study of the still life, through a systematic survey of works. The 13 geographical areas in which the production of these paintings was concentrated from the late 1500s to the early 1800s are methodically explored: the present state of studies, the historical and critical context, the catalogue of the artists.
