With this volume on the 19th century Electa begins a major new series: Landscape painting in Italy, coordinated by Anna Ottani Cavina.
[Landscape painting in Italy. The 19th century]. This is the first volume of a new series on landscape painting in Italy, the result of years of research on the part of an international team of scholars. The volume on the 19th century, edited by Carlo Sisi, director of Palazzo Pitti, includes historical-critical essays on the context, and a biographical repertoire of 220 artists – mostly Italians, representing all the regional schools, as well as foreigners active in Italy – who concentrated on landscape. This is the most up-to-date study on the landscape painting genre available today. Each biographical profile is accompanied by an updated bibliography and a pertinent selection of images. An indispensable tool for scholars, art dealers and collectors.
