About the Authors
  • This Companion explores the visual, intellectual, and religious culture of Renaissance Florence in the age of Masaccio, 1401-1428. Written by a team of internationally renowned scholars and conservators, the essays in this volume investigate the artistic, civic, and sacred contexts of Masaccio's works and the sites in which they were seen. Inspired by the 600th anniversary of Masaccio's birth, The Cambridge Companion to Masaccio celebrates the achievements, influence and legacy of early Renaissance art and one of its greatest masters.

    • Coincides with 600th anniversary of Masaccio's birth and the unveiling of the newly restored Trinity, a famous work, as well several scholarly symposia on the artist
    • Interdisciplinary and comprehensive, with contributions by internationally renowned scholars in several fields
    • Uses new methodologies and approaches, and publishes new proposals on Masaccio's technique as a painter
