Italian text

This monograph by Leonardo Cappelletti, historian of medieval philosophy and art historian, offers valuable insights into the life and work of Bartolomeo Berrecci. There are contributions by Eugenio Giani, Marco Mairaghi, Alessandro Sarti, and Cristina Acidini. The book begins with a discussion of Berrecci’s background and training. It goes on to explore Renaissance culture in Hungary and Poland, where the artist worked in the sixteenth century, and his artistic output—from the stone frieze now in the Museo Bardini in Florence to the Chapel and Tomb of King Sigismund I of Poland. Topics examined include Berrecci’s collaborators, his favorite themes—notably myths—and his references to Italian models, for example in his grottesche decorations.
The volume provides a reference point for the study of an artist hitherto neglected by art historians who have worked on the places associated with Berrecci’ origins and training: Pontassieve and Florence.
