Florence at the Dawn of the Renaissance. Painting and Illumination, 1300 - 1350

Florence and the Renaissance have become virtually synonymous, bringing to mind names like Dante, Giotto, Petrarch, Boccaccio, and many others whose creativity thrived during a time of unprecedented prosperity, urban expansion, and intellectual innovation. With more than 200 illustrations, Florence at the Dawn of the Renaissance reveals the full complexity and enduring beauty of the art of this period, including panel paintings, illuminated manuscripts, and stained glass panels. The book considers not only the work of Giotto and other influential artists, including Bernardo Daddi, Taddeo Gaddi, and Pacino di Bonaguida, but also that of the larger community of illuminators and panel painters who collectively contributed to Florence’s artistic legacy. It places particular emphasis on those artists who worked in both panel painting and manuscript illumination and presents new conservation research and scientific analyses that shed light on artists’ techniques and workshop practices of the times. Reunited here for the first time are twenty-six leaves of the most important illuminated manuscript commission of the period: the Laudario of Sant’ Agnese. The splendor of this book of hymns exemplifies the spiritual and artistic aspirations of early Renaissance Florence.
