The Renaissance, French for 'rebirth', was undoubtedly the most intensely creative period in history. This explosion of activity is reflected perhaps more than elsewhere in the art and architecture of the period. The legacy the artists, sculptors, tradesmen, architects, garden designers, engravers, and printers left behind can still be seen all over Europe today, not only in the things produced at the time but also in modern art, architecture, culture, and ways of thinking. Illustrated throughout, Renaissance Art and Architecture provides the reader with an informative overview of this fascinating period and comprehensive, alphabetically arranged entries on individual artists, architects and theorists, Schools, styles, techniques, and terms. Intriguing captions explain all featured pictures, giving the history and myth behind paintings, buildings, sculptures, and more. With the assurance of sound knowledge (Gordon Campbell is the epitome of the Renaissance man) this book can be used either as a source of reliable information on the art and architecture of the period or as something to browse through at leisure. Spanning the years 1415 to 1618 the A-Z text covers drawing, design, painting, sculpture, garden design, and architecture across the whole of Europe. Containing a major overview of the period as well as A-Z entries Renaissance Art and Architecture will be valuable to a variety of people, from art lovers and all those fascinated with European history and culture to a wide range of students and teachers.
