This was an invaluable resource in my research on Italian Renaissance artists for my nonfiction and fiction writing on Sandro Botticelli, including as it does chapters on the artist in society; artistic training; renaissance art: its function, location, and patronage; the materials of renaissance art (especially valuable); and the types of renaissance art. Very highly recommended. The Renaissance Artist at Work: From Pisano to Titian
