From the Inside Flap
Like his surveys of Renaissance art in Rome and Florence, Loren Partridge’s new book on Venice is an unmatched landmark achievement: comprehensive, authoritative, beautifully illustrated, indispensable for anyone seriously interested in the art, architecture, and culture of Renaissance Venice.” Randolph Starn, Professor of History and Italian Studies, University of California, Berkeley
Loren Partridge draws in the reader by bringing to life how these works would have been experienced, not just seen. This book takes us through streets, into chapels, over bridges, up grand stairways, into vast halls, and through small, domestic spaces. It shows us how the three-dimensional qualities of buildingsinside and outwould have structured the experiences and interactions of a period user, how paintings could engage in call-and-response across a room, and how sculptures could literally put viewers in their place.” Patricia L. Reilly, Swarthmore College
