✏Encyclopedia of Italian Renaissance Mannerist art Book Summary : A two-volume work covering an extraordinary period in the history of art that produced some of the most famous artists of all time, including Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, and Michelangelo. Beginning with transitional Late Gothic artists such as Giotto, the biographies in The Encyclopedia of Italian Renaissance and Mannerist Art trace the evolution of the new modes of artistic expression, from scientific naturalism and the development of linear perspective to the exploration of new secular themes derived from Classical literature and mythology. All three phases of Renaissance art are covers: early, high, and late (the latter period also known as Mannerist). Besides biographies on all types of artists, from [painters, illuminators, sculptors, and architects to printmakers and maiolica designers, patrons, and collectors, there are entries on styles, important art forms, cities, and in-depth surveys of all the fine and decorative art forms in Italy during the Renaissance and Mannerist periods.

✏Xanto Book Summary : Francesco Xanto Avelli Da Rovigo (c.1486-c.1542) painted some of the most beautiful and fascinating ceramics produced in Renaissance Italy, often drawing on classical mythology for his subjects. He was also a poet, and commented on the tempestuous events of his time - including the infamous Sack of Rome in 1527 - both in verse and allegorically in the imagery of the dishes and plates he decorated. This book is a comprehensive study of Xanto as a remarkable painter of Italian Renaissance tin-glazed earthenware (maiolica) decorated with narrative subjects (istoriato), a poet and a loyal follower of the condottiere Francesco Maria I della Rovere, Duke of Urbino. It contains a full transcription of his sonnets with a parallel English translation. A list of maiolica by or attributable to Xanto is another first. Through his ceramics, beautiful and interesting in themselves, and here superbly reproduced, it provides an enlightening cross-section of the dawn of the early modern era.
