Piero della Francesca

$ 2.99

The fifteenth century artist Piero della Francesca produced works that are characterised by their serene, disciplined exploration, providing a major, though largely unrecognised contribution to the development of the Italian Renaissance. His fervent interest in the theoretical study of perspective and his contemplative approach are apparent in all of his extant paintings. Highlights of Piero’s work include his masterful depiction of light and atmospheric effects, his attention to naturalistic detail and his pioneering approach to portraiture. 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 Piero’s complete works in beautiful detail, with concise introductions, hundreds of high quality images and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
