    DescriptionThe first three decades of the sixteenth century represent, visually and intellectually, the most exciting phase of the Renaissance in Venice - when Giorgione and the young Titian, together with Sebastiano del Piombo and Palma Vecchio, and others, were working alongside the older master Giovanni Bellini. This beautiful book presents an innovative survey of sixty Venetian Renaissance paintings of the calibre of Bellini and Titian's "Feast of the Gods" in Washington and Giorgione's "Laura and Three Philosophers" in Vienna. Unlike previous surveys of the period, this book refrains from dividing up the artists represented and instead explores the interrelationships between them. Through a series of thematic sections, the authors trace the rise of secular subjects - pastoral landscapes, female nudes, and romantic portraits - and the transformation of religious ones as well as innovations in style and technique. Cutting across genres, the book also focuses on the overarching themes of music, love, and time. Featuring essays by leading scholars, detailed entries on some of the most renowned pictures of sixteenth-century Italy, and revealing technical information, "Bellini, Giorgione, Titian, and the Renaissance of Venetian Painting" is an essential volume to own.
