Andrea Mantegna (c. 1430-1506) was perhaps the quintessential artist of the early Renaissance. This volume explores the creative mind and brilliant accomplishments of this remarkable master. The 330 illustrations, 100 in full colour, reproduce 154 of the artist's works. Included are the drawings that show the basis for Mantegna's technique, the paintings on which his fame was based and the engravings by which his ideas were widely disseminated in later centuries. Essays and catalogue entries by leading Mantegna scholars - Suzanne Boorsch, Keith Christiansen, David Ekserdjian, Charles Hope, David Landau, Jane Martineau, and others - present up-to-date research and consider various aspects of Mantegna's career.
