The art of the Renaissance by Peter Murray( Book )
6 editions published between 1963 and 1989 in 4 languages and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Renaissance began in Italy, but it was not a purely Italian phenomenon. 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. Arists as diverse as Piero della Francesca, Van Eyck, Durer, Mantegna and Bellini are included, with superb illustrations of their work, and the book closes with the advent of the giants of the High Renaissance - Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and Raphael."--BOOK COVER

The High Renaissance and mannerism : Italy, the north, and Spain, 1500-1600 by Linda Murray( Book )
1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The principal elements of High Renaissance art, first formulated by Leonardo da Vinci in the 1490's, came to their true flowering in the brilliant achievements of Bramante, Raphael and Michelangelo in Rome, of Michelangelo in Florence and of Giorgione and Titian in Venice. After the death of Raphael in 1520, the next generation in Italy was to see the rise of the complex and refined sensibility summed up in the term "Mannerism." In this uniquely comprehensive guide to sixteenth-century Renaissance art, Linda Murray not only examines the manifold achievements of Italian artists, but also identifies the strongly individual forms taken by the Renaissance and Mannerism in Northern Europe and Spain."--Back Cover
Michelangelo by Linda Murray( Book )
2 editions published between 1988 and 1994 in French and English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Contemporaries saw Michelangelo as the greatest artist of all times, recognizing in his creations an inspiration more divine than human. Today our appreciation of Michelangelo's sublime vision, and of his matchless gifts as sculptor, painter, architect and poet, has been strengthened and enriched by the perspective of four centuries. And Michelangelo himself has become the archetype of genius--dedicated, solitary, single-minded, tormented, harassed, unsatisfied and undefeated. In this lucid and authoritative survey, Linda Murray explores the political and religious context of his career, the recurring themes in the work, and the complex symbolism and iconography of his greatest masterpieces
