about this item

This work for students and scholars charts the intertwining evolution of art and science in the Florentine Renaissance, looking at scientific innovations that drove advances in art, as well as art and artists’ needs that further inspired scientific and technical growth. The first part of the book examines materials such as paint pigments, painting chemistry, frescoes, oil paints, and scientific advances affecting sculpture, porphyry, and art in wood, bronze, glass, semi-precious stones, and ceramics. Later chapters show how mathematics was applied to art and cartography and reveal connections between Renaissance art and medicine and astronomy. The final chapter looks at building methods, transportation of sculpture and building materials, and equipment used in the construction of cathedrals. The book includes b&w photos showing many examples of art and structures. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
