Following the success of the previous volumes in this extraordinary Series (The Early Renaissance and The Flowering of the Renaissance), Italian Frescoes: The High Renaissance to the Early Baroque presents twenty-two fresco cycles that include brilliant works by Michelangelo, Raphael, Titian, Andrea del Sarto, Parmigianino, Bronzino, Veronese, and Carracci all of them still visible on walls and ceilings of palaces and churches spanning Italy from the Veneto to Rome. The authors present such celebrated sites as the Sistine Chapel in Rome, Palladio Villa Barbaro in Maser, and the Palazzo del Te in Mantua as well as lesser known gems. Each of the twenty-two chapters is concise and authoritative, offering a descriptive and interpretive essay on all aspects of fresco painting, covering the artists and their patrons in the context of their cultural and political history. Each essay concludes with a diagram of the fresco cycle, followed by a series of full- and double-page colour plates showing the entire cycle, many reproduced from new photographs of recently restored frescoes.
