In the Renaissance period, art and architecture in Venice reached a kind of apotheosis when many of the city’s new buildings, sculptures, and paintings took on distinctive and original qualities. The spread of Renaissance values provided leading artists such as Gentile and Giovanni Bellini, Giorgione, Palladio, Titian, and Tintoretto with a licence for artistic invention. 

 By adopting a chronological approach and focusing attention on the artists, Tom Nichols presents a vivid and easily navigable study of Venetian Renaissance art.
