Italian Renaissance Art appears in its second updated edition to pack in over 400 images throughout the work--some 250 in full color- and has been expanded to include new works and topics as well as new treatment of mannerism and the role of women in visual arts. Maps, diagrams, and history accompanies a chronology of Italian renaissance art that will appeal to any arts collection primarily- but also to history holdings covering the Italian Renaissance era. College-level readers in both these areas will find this a fine survey!
