GIOTTO Historical notes and critical appraisal by
2 000,00 €
The declared aim of this publication is to offer, not only to specialists on GIOTTO, but also to the whole art-loving public, a privileged opportunity to meet the “Father of Modern Art”. It was not an easy task to add an original contribution to such a vast production of specialist literature; but this present publication establishes its own unique place as a remarkable pictorial catalogue and also from an interpretative and editorial aspect.
This work distinguishes itself as a complete repertoire and valuable documentation of all paintings attributable to GIOTTO and his school, including the less known works which are kept in museums outside Italy.
The splendour of the book's large format illustrations which set out GIOTTO's paintings in their entirety, reveals the originality and the figurative strength, the excellent colour choice, the rich inventiveness and the spacial awareness of the Artist. The famous fresco cycles of Assisi, Padua and Florence, together with GIOTTO's other paintings and those of his school, are reproduced in chronological succession in these pages.
