Riassunto: First published in 1955-63, Sir John Pope-Hennessy's classic Introduction to Italian Sculpture still stands as the definitive introduction to the subject. A triumph of clear organization, sustained critical scholarship and certain aesthetic judgement, its three volumes bring order to a huge mass of material, and present a magisterial survey of one of the most creative phases in Western art. These books have long been indispensable for scholars, students, curators, collectors and dealers. For the fourth edition of this great work, the text has been revised and updated, and new notes and bibliographies have been added. The design has been dramatically transformed, with all the illustrations now appearing in a single sequence integrated with the narrative text. Many new photographs have been obtained, and duotone printing has been used to achieve the highest possible quality of reproduction. This classic work is now reissued in a paperback edition, at a price that will make it also available to students and a wider public.
From the Publisher: For the fourth edition of this introduction to Italian sculpture, the author has thoroughly revised the text, notes and bibliographies, incorporating all the significant new research and publications since the last major revision in 1970-2. Volume I covers the period from about 1150 to 1400. The sculptors dealt with include Nicola and Giovanni Pisano, Arnolfo di Cambio, Andrea and Nino Pisano, Lorenzo Ghiberti and Jacopo della Quercia. The monuments illustrated include the great Pisano pulpits, the facades of the cathedrals of Siena, Florence and Orvieto, Milan Cathedral and S. Petronio at Bologna, the Scaliger tombs at Verona, the Angevin monuments in Naples, and Ghiberti's famous door for the Baptistery in Florence. The new edition of this work provides an accessible introduction to the subject for scholars, students and all lovers of Italian art. At the same time its scholarly notes make it a valuable reference work. Each volume in the set of three can be enjoyed in its own right.
