About the Authors
  • The Giulio Romano exhibition in Mantua in 1989 was the occasion for the publication, for the first time, of a full and thorough account of Giulio's art. This hugely successful catalogue, published by the Milanese house Electa, brought to the public's attention the extraordinary range of the artist's activities as painter, architect, stage designer, and draftsman, and placed his work within the context of the political, economic, and social conditions of the court of the Gonzagas, for whom he worked. Now this lavishly illustrated book, selected from the original Italian catalogue by the late Manfredo Tafuri, brings together essays by a distinguished team of scholars to provide a full picture of Giulio's activities as an architect, following his career from Rome through to Mantua and his late work at the Veneto. It offers for the first time in English a full account of one of the great architects of the High Renaissance.

    • Major study of the High Renaissance architect Giulio Romano
    • Lavishly illustrated and includes colour
    • Contributors are leading experts in the field, including Ernst Gombrich
    • First book in a major new series, Architecture in Early Modern Italy, co-published with Electa Books, Milan
