    One thought on “The Panorama of the Renaissance”

    1. Failed to deliver in the way the companion 'The Medieval World Complete' did deliver to really explain that time and place. Good presentation of art at's all

    2. Not an easy read in places but it still manages to be close to a masterpiece in itself. The author somehow manages to show paintings, sculpture and architecture from every aspect of renaissance life but covers each subject to the extent that you feel you know Leonardo's every brush stroke and toilet break. Never read a book quite like it.

    3. The Renaissance is such a vast subject that this barely scratches the surface of it. But it uses contemporary illustrative materials in an innovative, thematic approach that demonstrates the scope of the Renaissance while inviting the casual reader to study deeper. Thoroughly recommended.

    4. beautiful photos. like that the book is organized by subject, not chronologically or by artist. helped me retain more of the material.
