The paintings of the great Venetian artist are thoroughly analyzed on the visual plane as well, by means of a lavish set of illustrations. A series of explanatory diagrams and close-up photographs, on a one-to-one scale, permit the reader to appreciate the high formal qualities of this cycle of paintings and to get to the heart of its beauty and meaning.
In this volume the author, Francesca Cortesi Bosco, traces the dense web of religious and cultural motivations that lie behind Lotto's masterpiece, presenting a fascinating picture of the artistic life of the time and opening up completely new prospects for its interpretation.
