Piero Della Francesca piero della francesca masters of italian art
Few artists of the fifteenth century are as revered today as Piero della Francesca. The favourite artist of many painters and sculptors of our own time, he is admired especially for the balance of his compositions, the geometric perfection of his forms and the emotional coolness of his style. The secret of these qualities lies in part in Piero's achievements as a mathematician, one of the greatest of his age, and the author of three treatises on the subject. Yet most of his paintings were commissioned to serve a religious function and were appreciated by his contemporaries for their spiritual value. In this comprehensive survey, which benefits from superlative new photography of recently cleaned frescos, Marilyn Aronberg Lavin presents detailed analyses of all of Piero's surviving works. Situating his paintings within the context of early Renaissance art, religion and politics, she skilfully links past and present to offer an understanding of the artist's timeless appeal.

Masters of Italian Art: Titian piero della francesca masters of italian art
"During his time Bellini was a good and diligent painter. But he was outdone by Giorgio da Castelfranco. Titian left Giorgio countless miles behind him. He gave his figures a heroic majesty, and found a way of creating transitions of color that were infinitely soft, with colors so true and natural, that one is indeed telling the truth when one says that they were like Nature itself." Lodovico Dolce

Piero della Francesca piero della francesca masters of italian art
Widely considered the central figure of fifteenth-century painting, Piero della Francesca is also the most modern of all Renaissance painters. To our post-Cubist eyes, Piero's most famous work, his fresco cycle "The Legend of the True Cross" at Arezzo in Tuscany, conjures nothing so much as Cezanne's Mont Sainte-Victoire paintings; his serene articulations of architecture and perspective bring other modern traditions and painters to mind, such as Giorgio de Chirico. But it was Philip Guston--a major exponent of Piero in the twentieth century--who most eloquently identified what magnetizes us in Piero: "A different fervor, grave and delicate, moves in the daylight of his pictures. Without our familiar passions, he is like a visitor to earth, reflecting on distances, gravity and positions of essential forms." Piero's exquisitely subtle palette has meant that he has not been well served by past monographs, which have been scant enough: the last two major overviews, by Ronald Lightbown and Carlo Bertelli, were both published in 1992. This new monograph, benefiting from subsequent advances in color reproduction, therefore constitutes the first in 20 years. Its 150 color plates reproduce all of his works, from the classic "Baptism of Christ" (1450) at the National Gallery in London to the astounding frescos done for Sigismundo Malatesta at the Tempio Malatestiano in Rimini. Particular focus is given to the "Legend of the True Cross" fresco cycle at the Basilica of St. Francis in Arezzo.Piero della Francesca (1415-1492) was born in the town of Borgo Santo Sepolcro in Tuscany, where, in 1442, he was commissioned to paint the altarpiece of the town's church. Two years later he was at work on Malatesta's legendary Tempio in Rimini (where he may have first met Leon Battista Alberti). In 1485 he authored a famous treatise on geometry, and in his last years went blind.
