Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

While he does not attain the evocative nuances of his Florentine contemporaries Botticelli and Lippi, Ghirlandaio produced a body of work both celebrated and estimable. Cadogan (fine arts, Trinity Coll.) was the longtime Charles and Elenor Lamont Cunningham Curator of European Paintings at the Wadsworth Atheneum, and her mighty volume is a compelling reconstruction of both the artist's life and his oeuvre. Central to her study is a lengthy and perceptive examination of the master's stylistic development constructed around vigorous and subtle formal analyses, a deep acquaintance with documentary sources, and an obviously masterful knowledge of the artistic and artisanal ambience in which the artist labored. Cadogan also thoughtfully scrutinizes the drawings: their role in the master's creative process, their stylistic structure, and their relation to the quattrocento graphic context. These considerations are complemented by an elaborate and exacting catalogue raisonn?, comprehensive illustrations, and a gathering of documents in Latin and Italian. A definite desideratum for scholarly collections concerned with Renaissance art. Robert Cahn, Fashion Inst. of Technology, New York

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book arrived in the condition stated and in a prompt fashion. I could not be more pleased with the seller. I have read it cover to cover and it was a definitive book of the subject of Domenico Ghirlandaio and the fifteenth century art world as practiced by Ghirlandaio.
