The art of the Renaissance by Peter Murray( Book )

104 editions published between 1963 and 2013 in 8 languages and held by 2,541 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Renaissance began in Italy, but it was not a purely Italian phenomenon. It grew out of European civilizatioin, with roots in antiquity, in Christian dogma,, and in Byzantium. The authors follow this growth to the Florence of 1420 and the artistic ferment seething there, to the fascinating regional schools of Siena, Umbria, Mantua and Rome -- the magnet for every creative ambition through the influence of the great patron-Popes. Architecture, sculpture, painting, book ilustration, and all the arts of design underwent the same transformation." [Back cover]
The late Renaissance and Mannerism by Linda Murray( Book )

64 editions published between 1967 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,134 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 )

52 editions published between 1980 and 2000 in 6 languages and held by 2,106 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
