Book summary

For the fourth edition of this introduction to Italian sculpture, the author has thoroughly revised the text, notes and bibliographies, incorporating all the significant new research and publications since the last major revision in 1970-2. Volume II, spanning the 15th century, is dominated by the revolutionary genius of Donatello, whose work is illustrated. The author traces through this period the development, or revival of the free-standing statue, the relief, the bronze statuette, the equestrian monument and the portrait bust. Other great masters include Luca della Robbia, Verrocchio, Antonio Rossellino, Desiderio da Settignano, Riccio, Francesco Laurana and Tullio Lombardo. The new edition of this work provides an accessible introduction to the subject for scholars, students and all lovers of Italian art. At the same time its scholarly notes make it a valuable reference work. Each volume in the set of three can be enjoyed in its own right. [via]
