About the Authors
  • Moskowitz examines the sculpture produced in a variety of genres and media throughout the Italic peninsula, from the late medieval period until the beginning of the early modern era. Arguing that Italian Gothic sculpture is neither a provincial offshoot of northern Gothic art, nor a mere preparation for the Early Renaissance, she demonstrates that this body of art works is distinguished by a unique visual language and syntax. Tracing the developments of Italian sculpture, from Nicola Pisano's arrival in Tuscany around 1260 through the end of the fourteenth century, this volume surveys developments in Central Italy as well as those in Naples, Compania, Lombardy and the Veneto. This study incorporates the most recent scholarly findings, including archival and archaeological discoveries, and restoration and conservation efforts. The book also addresses broad questions of politics, patronage, and piety.

    • Includes 395 halftones, which emphasize regional as well as mainstream sculpture
    • Sees the works of art as the products of collaboration between artist and patron, as well as hands-on collaboration within the workshop
    • Views the sculptures within their local environments, explaining how they functioned to serve patrons and contemporary viewers

    'An impressive work that can serve, on the one hand, as an introduction to the study of Italian Gothic sculpture for students new to the subject, as well as a handy reference book to some of the key monuments of the period for scholars more familiar with the subject.' The Art Book
