A New History of Italian Renaissance Art by Stephen J. CampbellA New History of Italian Renaissance Art presents the classic canon of Renaissance painting and sculpture in full, while expanding the scope of conventional surveys by offering a more thorough coverage of architecture, decorative and domestic arts, and print media.
Rather than emphasizing artists’ biographies, this new account concentrates on the works, discussing the means of production; the places for which images were made; the concerns of patrons; and the expectations and responses of the works’ first viewers.
Renaissance art is seen as decidedly new, a moment in the history of art whose concerns still persist.
