"The Italian Painters of the Renaissance" by Bernard Berenson

Berenson’s classic study of Italian Renaissance painters is a collection of essays published separately between 1894 and 1907, focusing on the painters of Venice, Florence, central Italy, and northern Italy. The author not only analyzes the merit of scores of individual painters from Giotto to Correggio, but also traces the development of Italian painting. Throughout the volume, Berenson reiterates his theory that the “life enhancement” qualities of high art are found in the areas of tactile values, movement, and spatial composition, all of which he explains in articulate detail. Buona lettura!
