About the Authors
  • The Cambridge Companion to Masaccio 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. They also reassess the artist's connection to the past, especially to medieval workshop practices, ancient and Gothic art, as well as his novel experiments with technique, perspective, and narrative. Collectively, they re-evaluate his association with Brunelleschi, Ghiberti, Donatello, and his collaborator Masolino. 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
