schema:description"This lavishly illustrated book presents one of the great collections of Italian paintings in North America, and includes major works dating from the twelfth through the eighteenth centuries. The volume presents fifty highlights of the collection, many with color details and comparative illustrations. Introductions to each chronological section situate individual works of art within the artistic and stylistic developments of the period. Signature pieces featured in this volume include Virgin and child with saints and angels, ca. 1340-45, by Pietro Lorenzetti; The ideal city, ca. 1480-84, attributed to Fra Carnavale; Madonna and child with saints and three Venetian procurators, 1510, by Giovanni Bellini and workshop; Madonna of the candelabra, ca. 1513, by Raphael and workshop; Portrait of Countess Livia da Porto Thiene and her daughter Porzia, ca. 1551, by Veronese; The penitent Magdalene, ca. 1635, by Guido Reni; and Scipio Africanus freeing Massiva, 1719-21, by Giambattista Tiepolo. Taken together, the Walters Art Museum's holdings constitute a magnificent array of individual works as well as a historical journey through seven centuries of Italian art. A selected bibliography provides both standard reference sources and a selection of the most important recent books and articles on each work and artist featured in the book.--Book jacket."@en
