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, ihalian that may have to do with museums and copywrite and nothing to do with Hartt. Feb 19, Victoria rated it it was amazing Shelves: It is a book for those who study or seriously interested in art and it isn’t cheap.
Very detailed with fabulous illustrations. Apparently a real classic of the genre. Hefty and full of pix. hisstory
I rescued this from the trash of a certain book purveyor. Along with a book covering the two world wars, this is the biggest tome I’ve ever pulled out of the oblivion hole.
Hope to review this soon May iralian, Adrian Colesberry rated it really liked it. How I taught myself about art. I thought, Man, I used to know all this in college. Turns out I was inspired to read through my Italian Renaissance Book. Man this book is full of good stuff. My only complaint is that it’s huge and difficult to carry. I wish something like this came in a Kindle or Nook.
Then again, the wonderful color plates wouldn’t be available. The photos are great. The art history is even better. Feb 06, Theresa Leone Davidson rated it it was od.
A dense, informative book that would appear to include everything you could want to know about the topic. The pictures are gorgeous, and the stories behind them fun to read. The book is not just about the masters, either, like da Vinci and Michelangelo, but about lesser known geniuses, like Paolo Uccello, Piero della Francesca and Antonello da Messina.
Terrific compilation that I would highly recommend. Visual feast with complementary knowledge.

Jul 02, Jennifer rated it it was amazing Shelves: Great book on Italian Renaissance art, and good for supplement material in any art history class.
Another great Art History lecture with Dr. Sep 14, Carla Ferris rated it liked it. The History of Italian Renaissance Art has nice illustrations. Enjoyable to read the history. This book reminded me of my Art history text book. This book is amazing for a book, much less a textbook. I originally checked it out from the library, but that edition had mostly black and white photos, so I rented the latest edition from Barnes and Noble for around thirty dollars – not cheap, but well worth it.
For some reason, I really enjoy looking at artwork while reading a critical analysis of it. I didn’t read it deep enough to actually critique the artwork myself, or even tell good artwork from bad artwork, but Itzlian can identify different R This book is amazing for a book, much less a textbook.
I didn’t read it deep enough to actually critique the artwork myself, or even tell good artwork from bad artwork, but I can identify different Renaissance artists and paintings now. It is a long book, but again, well worth the effort. I really gained a deep appreciation for the effort and effect that goes into making good artwork. As part of my “Monuments Men” fixation, I found this book by one of them.
Frederick Hartt does a wonderful job at explaining Italian Renaissance art, as we would expect. The jarring thing about the book, from my spoiled sensibility, is that so many of the pictures are in black and white, which makes sense considering the histlry date of the book. I found myself turning to Google images frequently, in order to see the works in color.
