Near Fine/Near Fine.
Review: Sienese painting is often thought of in reference to the strikingly colorful and beautifully designed paintings of Duccio di Buoninsegna, Simone Martini, and the Lorenzetti brothers, from the dawn of the Italian Renaissance. This sumptuous book carefully traces that glorious early heritage. But it also extends its reach forward to about 1700 in order to include many later artists, with whom readers may not be as familiar, such as Rutilio Manetti, whose passionate style was radically altered after he came into contact with the revolutionary work of Caravaggio. The last chapters contain Baroque paintings of extraordinary color and warmth, such as Domenico Beccafumi's shadowy, sweet Annunciation. Nonetheless, it is the almost magically compelling early Sienese masters who dominate this volume. Lorenzetti's intricate Effects of Good Government in the Town and Countryside, for example, from the Palazzo Pubblico in Siena, is thoughtfully reproduced both in its entirety, in a four-page fold-out, and in many details that do justice to such minutiae as the chain holding two hunting dogs together, or a pheasant flushed from a wheat field. Even amateur art lovers will sense both the piety and the struggle toward naturalism that inform the earliest of these works. The angel whispering to the saint, the rich red robe of Christ, Mary's sober countenance--all seem imbued with fervor, both painterly and religious.
This book gives the reader the closest possible look at these masterworks. It is organized chronologically, with thoroughly documented texts on each period and every work, printed in excellent, well-spaced type. One small flaw in an otherwise beautifully designed book: there are no dates or measurements in the captions. --Peggy Moorman

Descrizione libro ABRAMS October 1998, 1998. Hardcover. Condizione libro: Used - Very Good. For almost 500 years, from the late Middle Ages into the 17th century, the Italian city of Siena was a thriving center of trade, learning, and fine art. This magnificently illustrated book is the first to celebrate Siena's influential and impressive artistic heritage. Informative essays are illuminated by a wealth of exquisite color reproductions, including numerous specially photographed color details and two dazzling foldouts. The book begins with the emergence of the distinctive Sienese style in the mid-1200s -- emphasizing brilliant color, elaborate pattern, and elegant goldwork -- and spans the refined work of the late Baroque period. Illustrated and discussed are the paintings, frescoes, altarpieces, and other works of such early Sienese masters as Duccio di Buoninsegna, Simone Martini, and the gifted brothers Ambrogio and Pietro Lorenzetti. Featured too are Sienese artists working in the Renaissance, Mannerist, and Baroque styles, among them Sassetta, Domenico Beccafumi. Francesco Vanni, and Ventura Salimbeni, to name but a few. Slight scratching/scuffing on dust jacket. First few pages are a little warped, text edges has a few dirt spots. A very good reading copy. Codice libro della libreria 132679
