Giotto: The Crucifix in Santa Maria Novella

Giotto: The Crucifix in Santa Maria Novella Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Comparing the art of restoration to the opportunity for the acquisition of knowledge, this consideration focuses on Giotto's Santa Maria Novella Crucifix, stressing that every new piece of information has the potential to rewrite whole chapters of art history. The painstaking 12-year restoration of one of the Christian world's most important art works is documented in detail, and a fresh interpretation of what was known about the artist—particularly his color sensibility and painting style—is also featured.

Synopsis:

If restoration always represents a great opportunity for the acquisition of knowledge, when it serves as a means of access to a work by one of the supreme masters of Italian art as it does in the case of Giotto's Santa Maria Novella Crucifix every new piece of information has the potential to rewrite whole chapters of art history. The opportunity to a each such information first hand must not be wasted, and in this book, readers will be able to see for themselves the painstaking twelve year restoration of one of the Christian world's most important art works Contained within these pages is a rewriting of much of what was I known about Girotto, particularly his color sensibility and painting style.
