Piero Della Francesca

Cover
Giunti Editore, 1998 - 50 Seiten
Nella presente edizione, interamente in inglese, si ripercorre la vicenda artistica del toscano Piero della Francesca (1415/1420-1492), ricostruendo la sua ricerca su luce, forma e proporzione. Piero si forma a Firenze alle scuole di Domenico Veneziano, del Beato Angelico e dell'Alberti. Al suo primo periodo appartengono il Battesimo di Cristo e il Polittico della Misericordia. Successivamente giungono i capolavori del ciclo di Arezzo e le opere eseguite ad Urbino, alla corte dei Montefeltro.
