Previous ed.: Upper Saddle River, N.J.: Prentice Hall; London: Laurence King, 2005.

With a freshness and breadth of approach that sets the art in its context, this book explores why works were created and who commissioned the palaces, cathedrals, paintings, and sculptures. It covers Rome and Florence, Venice and the Veneto, Assisi, Siena, Milan, Pavia, Genoa, Padua, Mantua, Verona, Ferrara, Urbino, and Naples.

Chapters are grouped into four chronological parts, allowing for a sustained examination of individual cities in different periods. "Contemporary Scene" boxes provide fascinating glimpses of daily life and "Contemporary Voice" boxes quote from painters and writers of the time.

Innovative and scholarly, yet accessible and beautifully presented, this book is a definitive work on the Italian Renaissance.

This revised edition contains c.200 new pictures and nearly all colour images.

The chapter structure has also been improved in the final section and the new format makes the text more user-friendly.
