Featuring paintings by some of the greatest artists in Renaissance Italy. Raphael, Botticelli, Bellini and Titian, among others, form an amazing array of talent and creative splendour.

These exquisite paintings, made between 1400 and 1600, come from centres of Renaissance high culture in Florence, Venice, Siena, Padua, Perugia, Urbino, Ferrara, Verona, Mantua, Milan, Bergamo and Rome. The works are from the collection of one of Italy's finest art museums, the Accademia Carrara in Bergamo. Subjects range from touching depictions of the Madonna and Child to episodes from the lives of saints and moving renditions of the Crucifixion to portraits of men and women in elaborate costume.

This beautiful book reflects the genius and creativity of the two centuries of Italian Renaissance art that are the foundation of the grand tradition of European painting. It includes essays by Italian and Australian scholars and descriptions of each painting in the exhibition as well as biographies on the artists featured in theexhibition and a detailed timeline.
