Product description

This is the last published work of Colin Rowe, the fruit of his four-year collaboration with Leon Satkowski. It is a testament to the buildings, architects and artists Rowe most deeply appreciated. Exploring the architecture of 16th-century Italy, it is illustrated throughout with photographs, painting and drawings of the art and architecture which make this period and place so beloved. The text emphasizes the leading subjects of the 16th-century Renaissance: the architects (Bramante, Vignola), the patrons (Leo X, Cosimo I de Medici), the artists (Michelangelo), and the cities (Rome, Venice, Florence).
