A stirring exploration of the Renaissance by the art critic of The Guardian
The eminent Guardian art critic explores the history of the Renaissance as a network of connections across Europe. Here artists from the north and south were products of the brilliantly fertile mix of classical inspiration, observation, and self-consciousness that set European culture alight from the fifteenth to the early seventeenth centuries. From Leonardo da Vinci to Hieronymus Bosch, Pieter Bruegel to Titian, this stirring narrative sets the lives of artists against a period of great change across the continent.
