Andrea Mantegna: Making Art (History) presents the art of Mantegna as challenging the parameters of the history of art in the demands it makes upon historical interpretation, and explores the artist s potentially transformative impact on the study of the early Renaissance. * Features an array of new methodologies for the study of Mantegna and early Renaissance art * Critically addresses the question of iconography and literary art, as well as the politics of the monographic exhibition * Includes translations of two seminal accounts of the artist by Roberto Longhi and Daniel Arasse, key texts not previously available in English * Explores the Mantegna s potentially transformative impact on the study of the early Renaissance
