    One thought on “Renaissance Florence: The Invention of a New Art”

    1. An excellent, brief, intelligent, and highly readable introduction to Renaissance Art, in its Florentine aspect.

    2. Read in preparation for our trip. While this is probably a text used in classrooms, it is mostly accessible and kept my attention much of the time. This is probably the first art history book I've read since high school. It's so much more fascinating when you are on the brink of actually seeing these great works.

    3. An outstanding look at art and it's development through the Renaissance. Super informative and easy to read.
