Description

Botticelli’s work analyzed by one of the most important English-speaking art historians of our time.

Starting from the painting of the Nativity, Kenneth Clark explores the main characteristics of Botticelli’s art with a style and interpretative ability intended for the general public that’s as engaging as a story.

The volume collects, in a series of color reproductions, all the works of Botticelli preserved in museums and churches in Florence, each with the relative technical information.

The entire biography of Botticelli written by Giorgio Vasari and published in the Lives of the most excellent painters, sculptors and architects is supplied in the appendix to the volume.
