Summary
Born in 1462, an auspicious time for hopeful young painters in Renaissance Florence, Piero di Cosimo left the city's artistic landscape forever changed upon his death in 1522. The singular vision of this highly esteemed painter is beautifully presented in this important publication, which accompanies the first-ever retrospective of di Cosimo's astonishing career. A contemporary of luminaries such as Botticelli, Leonardo and Michelangelo, Piero di Cosimo was regarded in his day as a creative spirit of uncommon imagination. As a poet his fantastic inventions rivalled the verses of the shining lights of ancient Greece and Rome, whose myths and allegories he set out to transform in a strange language all his own. As a masterful painter of both sacred and profane subjects he could flit between complex, crowded compositions and scenes of intimate, tranquil lyricism. This groundbreaking publication demonstrates di Cosimo's range through in-depth discussions of individual works that help to substantiate specific interpretations and cases of authorship while also addressing the broader social and religious functions of image-making in the period. This unique publication makes a significant contribution to our understanding of a true Italian master, arguably Renaissance art's most spellbinding storyteller
