Description

New York Times bestseller

A magnificent, never-before-published collection of every painting and fresco on display in the Uffizi, the Galleria Palatina of the Pitti Palace, the Accademia, and the Duomo, and more -- nearly 2,000 works of art -- all presented in a beautiful slipcased package.

This stunning book provides a comprehensive look at the masterpieces housed in the Renaissance art capital of the world including the art of Giotto, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo,
Ghirlandaio, Correggio, Botticelli, Caravaggio, Titian, Rembrandt, van Dyck, El Greco, and hundreds more.

Ross King, bestselling author of Brunelleschi's Dome and Michelangelo and the Pope's Ceiling, explores the history of art in Florence through seven introductory essays connecting the paintings, politics, the every day life of Florentines and how they influenced each other. Art historian Anja Grebe (author of The Louvre and The Vatican), highlights two hundred and fifty of the most iconic and significant paintings and frescoes around the historic city.

This stunning showcase of the art capital of the world also includes two removable posters of Florence -- one from the Renaissance and one from the present day.
