Focusing on the outstanding sixteenth-century European paintings in the National Gallery, London, Durer to Veronese examines the finest works of such artists as Holbein, Raphael, Cranach, Titian and Bronzino. The authors look closely at a variety of types of painting as well as frescoes, drawings and prints. They provide fascinating insights into the meanings of individual pictures and the social position of the artist in the 1500s as well as the most up-to-date account yet of the procedures, practices and materials these artists employed.
