Newest among Barron's large, lavishly illustrated books of full-color art reproductions, this magnificent volume evokes the art of the European Renaissance as it came to flower during the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. Radiating from the cities of Florence and Rome, then spreading across Italy and most of the rest of Europe, this era is best known today through the works of such masters as Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo Buonarroti, and Raphael Sanzio. Paintings by these and many more artists are faithfully reproduced in this magnificent volume. More than 90 Italian, Flemish German, French, and Spanish artists are represented in a spectacular collection of some 500 full-color reprodutions. In addition to works by the three Italian masters cited above, readers will find reproductions of paintings by Botticelli, Titian, Correggio, Bronzino, Bruegel, Bosch, Durer, and Holbein, among many others. This beautiful volume's large and faithful full-color reproductions present a dramatic and absorbing overview of what many historians call the single most important epoch in the history of the visual arts.
