About the book:

Venetian artist Carlo Crivelli (c. 14301495) is a painter whose individuality of style and mastery of powerful line have fascinated many, but whose life and art have remained enigmatic. This absorbing book, drawing on extensive research in Venice and the Marches, the region of central Italy that Crivelli dominated artistically from 1468 until his death, examines his paintings in depth and traces the fundamental influences of the Vivarini, of Squarcione and Mantegna, and later of Flemish art.

Ronald Lightbown, eminent historian of Italian Renaissance art, interweaves stylistic and iconographical analysis of Crivellis work with historical and cultural background. The author uncovers the reasons that led patrons to choose the saints that figured in Crivellis altarpieces, discusses the initiations of new cults and the devising of an iconography for them, and demonstrates Crivellis independence from clerical dictation in the symbolism of his still-life pictures.
