Andrea Mantegna

$ 2.99

The most important northern Italian artist of the early Renaissance, Andrea Mantegna was a student of Roman archaeology and the son-in-law of Jacopo Bellini. A pioneering master of perspective, Mantegna used pictorial devices such as extreme foreshortening, lowering the horizon to create greater monumentality and rendering his figures as more rounded and modelled, with Donatellian naturalism. His masterpieces are renowned for their minute attention to detail, rendering rocky and metallic landscapes with a fundamentally sculptural approach to painting. His paintings were highly sought after by Europe’s royal houses, while Dürer, Rubens and Rembrandt are just a few of the artists that copied and learnt from his works. Delphi’s Masters of Art Series presents the world’s first digital e-Art books, allowing readers to explore the works of great artists in comprehensive detail. This volume presents Mantegna’s complete paintings in beautiful detail, with concise introductions, hundreds of high quality images and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
