Renaissance italienne

Author(s): Cécile  Dumoulin

€ 11.40 tax included

Imitation and knowledge were the two watchwords of Italian Renaissance painting. How can we enter into the intimacy of so long ago? With what eye should the works of the Italian Renaissance be viewed today? How can we grasp the iconography, sometimes obscure to our eye, of an era that is nevertheless at the source of our civilization of the image? These are the questions this booklet strives to answer. It also provides a study of eight major paintings from the Louvre.
