This is the first study in English of Altichiero, one of the most important painters of the later Italian Trecento. Altichiero, a native of Verona, worked exclusively for the despotic rulers of Verona and Padua and their courtiers, translating their chivalric aspirations into fresco cycles of extraordinary beauty and originality and serving as the favourite artist of the proponents of the revival of classical learning at these courts. Altichiero, whose work is indebted to Giotto, worked in close collaboration with Petrarch, the greatest of early Italian Humanists, and with his friends and followers in Padua. In addition to an informative catalogue and bibliography, the book also contains a wealth of illustrations in both colour and black and white, which bring the work and world of Altichiero to life.
