Peter Murray (Author), Linda LeFevre Murray (Author, Photographer). The book does not give an adequate survey of Renaissance Art - in fact, it is not about Renaissance Art at all - most of the book is devoted to pre- and early Renaissance art. Only the last chapter covers the High Renaissance and it is the shortest one in the book. Instead it rambles on and on through some key artists and leaves things at that.

The Renaissance began in Italy, but it grew out of European civilization, with roots in Antiquity, in Christian dogma, and in Byzantium

The Renaissance began in Italy, but it grew out of European civilization, with roots in Antiquity, in Christian dogma, and in Byzantium. The artistic ferment which had taken hold of Florence by 1420 was also reflected in the regional schools of Siena, Umbria, Mantua and Rome; and the new ideas spread from Italy through France, the Netherlands, Austria, Spain and Portugal.

The book does not give an adequate survey of Renaissance Art - in fact, it is not about Renaissance Art at all - most of the book is devoted to pre- and early Renaissance art. Only the last chapter covers the High Renaissance and it is the shortest one in the book. Instead it rambles on and on through some key artists and leaves things at that. They do not describe at all what distinguishes a certain city or period fom another - instead they hone in on one or two paintings, yak about it for a while and leave the reader to infer what they mean. The very worst part is that most of the paintings they babble on and on about are not even plated in the book. Extremely diffuse and a grand waste of time and money.
