Historical Dictionary of Renaissance Art

The newest addition to Ohrstrom’s art reference collection features a chronology of Renaissance art, an introduction & overview of the period, and hundreds of brief entries featuring painters, sculptors, architects and patrons.  Other topics include: themes, specific artwork and technical terms.  Alphabetically arranged, the entries are short, sweet & direct.

HELPFUL FOR: Humanities V – especially scholars looking for just a bite of information.  Particularly useful when looking to decide which artist or artwork to research.
