The Renaissance in Italy
By Harald Keller


This book presents the art of the Italian Renaissance in a new key-not as a steady historical progression, but in a series of studies and vignettes that illuminate this mighty period from many angles and bring the reader to an understanding in depth of its many facets.

The wide knowledge of Professor Harald Kelley, of the University of Frankfurt, permits us to concentrate on the new themes and inventions during the century-long development of Renaissance art and architecture; on the inspiration drawn from ancient art; on the great cities of the time; on the solutions to artistic problems such as colour and composition; on vast projects of decoration and on isolated masterpieces; on ceramics and graphic art; on theory and practice.

Superb large-size illustrations in gravure are liberally distributed throughout these nineteen chapters, and the hand-tipped plates in full colour round out the panorama of Renaissance art. From its sources to its fulfilment, the Italian Renaissance is exhibited in this volume in all its richness.

382 illustrations, including 31 hand-tipped plates in full colour
