The art of Florence by Glenn M Andres( Book )

9 editions published between 1987 and 1994 in English and held by 1,075 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the radiant years of the Renaissance, the city of Florence has come to represent the greatest triumph of the Western cultural tradition. Here, hundreds of the most splendidly talented artists in history lived and worked, and collaborated in the creation of the great urban museum we know as Florence. "The Art of Florence" analyzes the history of Florentine art in terms of the distinctly Florentine and Tuscan influences that shaped it, linking the city's architecture, sculpture, and painting to the rich social fabric and the dramatic political life of the city. Woven into this history is a visual documentation of Florence's treasures."--Amazon

Michelangelo : the frescoes of the Sistine Chapel by Marcia B Hall( Book )

6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Michelangelo's frescoes in the Sistine Chapel - the great glory of the Vatican, and one of the treasured masterpieces of Western painting - provide a visual feast for art lovers in this magnificent book." "Presenting a complete survey of the restored Sistine Chapel frescoes from Creation scenes to the Last Judgment, the book includes a new text by a highly regarded American scholar, Marcia B. Hall. The stunning photographs, taken just after the decade-long restoration, reveal Michelangelo's glowing colors and intricate designs in both large, overall views as well as a wealth of close-up details. No other one-volume work on the Sistine Chapel offers such a clear, accessible introduction to these beloved and important works."--Jacket
Treasures of the Uffizi Florence by Galleria degli Uffizi( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Italy's most famous museum, the Uffizi in Florence, houses a spectacular collection of Renaissance art as well as works by later masters. In the sixteenth century the wealthy and powerful Medici family began amassing fine art and displaying it in the Uffizi, their showplace palace in the heart of Florence. Ruling Tuscany for another two centuries, the family continually enriched its holdings with works by the best European artists of the time, many of them commissioned or acquired from the artists themselves. When the collection was donated to the city of Florence in 1737, it was, in essence, given to the people, and this ensured that the collection would remain intact in its original building." "In this skillful and dazzling selection of paintings from the Galleria degli Uffizi are the greatest works by the early Renaissance artists - Giotto, Piero della Francesca, Mantegna, Botticelli, Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raphael - and by the later Italians such as Caravaggio, Tiepolo, and Canaletto. Artists from throughout Europe are also well represented, among them Durer, El Greco, Rubens, Velazquez, Rembrandt, Boucher, and Goya, and the collection includes some of the best-known paintings in the world. This book presents the best of them for a tour of one of history's pre-eminent public art collections."--Jacket
