Description

A two-volume history of Italian art from antiquity to the present day. Providing a comprehensive account of "art" in the wider sense, it covers painting, sculpture, photography and iconography, restorations and fakes, landscapes and writing. The authors focus not only on individual artists and epochs, but on the conditions under which Italian art and is created: its principles, intentions and effects. This first volume includes contributions on the history of Italian artists, from the 12th to the 20th century; on regional art outside the traditional centres; on antique art; on the "dispersal" and conservation of artistic works; and on the public reception of art.show more
