“The artist who is the very image of pure creative serendipity, synonymous with luminous, satisfying painting, without contrasts, almost without history, but a painting that contains, if we look closely, all possible contradictions” (A. Paolucci).
Aimed at informed but non-specialized readers, this book offers a monographic summary of the life and work of Piero della Francesca.
The short introduction examines the circumstances that led to the emergence and evolution of the artist’s personality. This is followed by a veritable “guided tour” through an imaginary museum of his masterpieces, splendidly illustrated, with complete descriptive captions.
A small anthology of critical and documentary writings and an essential bibliography make the books in this series up-to-date tools for students and art lovers alike.
