Italian Renaissance Art History

A very good survey. It's difficult to find a good survey, but my professor is literally 90+ years old, so he's had time to look around. This one is very good because it includes more than just the recognized masters, but also their teachers and their influences and predecessors.

A very good survey. It's difficult to find a good survey, but my professor is literally 90+ years old, so he's had time to look around. This one is very good because it includes more than just the recognized masters, but also their teachers and their influences and predecessors. Additionally, Hartt spends a great deal of time explaining the processes of creating the various types of painting (tempera, oil, on different media) or fresco (buon, secco, etc.) or sculpture, which taught me a great deal. Finally, the glossary in the back has proven very helpful with Italian and Greek terminology for iconographical symbols or parts of altarpieces and other little tidbits. The only downside to this book is the masterworks he chose. I wish there were more variety, but that may have to do with museums and copywrite and nothing to do with Hartt.
