Renaissance Art: A Very Short Introduction

Geraldine A Johnson

Very Short Introductions

  • provides a broad cultural-historical context for some of the Renaissance's most famous artists and works of art
  • considers Renaissance art produced in both Northern and Southern Europe, rather than focusing on just one region
  • explores "forgotten" aspects of Renaissance art, such as objects made for the home, and women who served as artists and patrons
  • introduces readers to a variety of approaches to the study of Renaissance art, from social history to formal analysis
