Editorial Reviews

Review

"The subject of this book is of great importance to all scholars interested in Renaissance art ... It takes an approach different from many others and one that opens new avenues for consideration."
Sixteenth Century Journal

"Enjoyable reading and an undoubtedly interesting topic."
Roma nel Rinascimento

"Luba Freedman's book offers us a fascinating trajectory into paintings of the Renaissance with classical mythological subjects, surveying some of the most impressive episodes in the painted media ever produced on Italian soil."
Renaissance and Reformation

Book Description

This book retraces the development of classical imagery in the visual arts of the Italian Renaissance. The extant artifacts of Roman antiquity, in addition to the study of Greek and Latin texts which brought to light descriptions of ancient paintings, were used as models for re-creating the visual culture of antiquity.
