More About This Title Fra Angelico to Leonardo
This sumptuously illustrated catalogue charts the history of drawing in Italy from 1400, just prior to the emergence in Florence of the classically inspired naturalism of the Renaissance style, to around 1510 when Michelangelo, Raphael and Titian were on the verge of taking the innovations of earlier masters, such as Leonardo and Pollaiuolo, in a new direction. It provides unique insight into the creative thinking of the greatest painters of the Italian Renaissance shown through the intimate, private medium of their drawings.
