From the Publisher. Matching an elegant and sophisticated text by three leading art historians with hundreds of glorious color photographs, The Art of Florence immerses us in a city and a time of unparalleled cultural ferment. This publication analyzes the history of Florentine art in terms of the distinctly Florentine and Tuscan influences that shaped it, linking Florentine architecture, sculpture, and painting to the rich social fabric and the dramatic political life of the city. More than 700 color images and another 854 duotones and architectural drawings are reproduced.
