Painting and Experience in 15th Century Italy
Painting and Experience in Fifteenth-Century Italy: A Primer in the Social History of Pictorial Style book - is both an introduction to fifteenth-century Italian painting, and a primer in how to read social history out of the style of pictures.
It examines the commercial practice of the early Renaissance picture, trade in contracts, letters, and accounts; and it explains how the visual skills and habits evolved in the daily life of any society enter into its painters' style.
Renaissance painting is related for instance to experience of such activities as preaching, dancing, and gauging barrels. This second edition contains an appendix, the original Latin and Italian texts referred to throughout the book, giving the student access to all the relevant, authentic sources.
