Book Description:
The third volume in the only comprehensive modern survey of the surviving frescoes created during the later years of the great Italian Renaissance to the Baroque. Following the success of the previous volumes in this extraordinary series Italian Frescoes: The Early Renaissance and Italian Frescoes: The Flowering of the Renaissance this volume presents twenty two fresco cycles, each representing a notable achievement in the history of art. The fresco cycles featured include brilliant works by Michelangelo, Raphael, Titian, Andrea del Sarto, Parmigianino, Bronzino, Veronese, and Carracci all of them still visible on walls and ceilings of palaces and churches spanning Italy from the Veneto to Rome. Here are such celebrated sites as the Sistine Chapel in Rome and Palladio s Villa Barbaro in Maser, as well as lesser known gems. Each of the twenty two chapters is concise and authoritative, offering a descriptive and interpretive essay on all aspects of fresco painting, covering the artists and their patrons in the context of their cultural and political history. Each essay concludes with a diagram of the site, followed by a series of full and double page color plates showing the entire cycle, many reproduced from new photographs of recently restored frescoes. No publisher until now has attempted to gather together and document all the important fresco cycles of the Italian Renaissance. While this volume is a continuation of the previous books, The High Renaissance to the Baroque easily stands alone as an incredible treasury of art and scholarship, which will be eagerly collected by art historians and art lovers alike. Other Details: 360 full color illustrations
