Summary Professor Francesca Flores d'Arcais's chronological survey of Giotto's life and work incorporates an impressive range of sources, from fourteenth-century Latin and Italian documents to the most recent art-historical investigations. Her international research leads her to important re-attributions of Giottesque paintings and to new insights regarding the execution and dating of famous and less well-known works. The engaging text is illustrated by hundreds of oversize, superbly reproduced photographs - some on double gatefold pages. The illustrations are drawn from new photography of Giotto's paintings, many of which have been recently restored to their original brilliance.
