Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Unusual and disconcerting, eccentric and secretive, Uccello has long been regarded as a marginal figure in the glory that was Renaissance Florence. This splendid volume does much to change that image and to explain the creative intellect and daring approach to perspective and color that set him on a course divergent from his contemporaries. Additionally, this is a study of 15th-century Florence-a city with a rich Gothic tradition evolving into a center of humanism and creativity. The Borsis, father and son, Renaissance scholars both, have brought together all surviving works in an illustrated catalogue raisonne, supplied an excellent chronology and bibliography, and contributed valuable insights and interpretations. A definitive work; highly recommended for all art libraries and large public collections.

Format: Hardcover
Please, take a closer look at this book. If you cannot visit Florence or London, at least take a look. This is one of the most fascinating painters of all time. How modern does his work seem! How envious it should make modernists! This is painting just before academicalism-through the invention of perspective- took place. Hockney avant la lettre and he did not even know it. The book is so very well made and such a pleasure to look at. It simply makes one happy. Next, you will find yourself searching for the real thing- because that is even better. L.
