Architecture of the Renaissance (New Horizons)

From Brunelleschi to Palladio

Bertrand Jestaz

Out of stock


From Brunelleschi to Michelangelo, from St Peter's in Rome to the villas of Palladio, this is the story of the builders, architects, painters and sculptors who contributed to the glories of Renaissance architecture


In early 15th-century Florence an idea took root that was to change art and society for ever: the revival of classical Rome, its values, its culture and its architecture. Abruptly rejecting the Gothic style of the Middle Ages, European architects eagerly adopted a new set of principles to create some of the most wonderful buildings of all time.
