Quattro Cento Stones of Rimini: A Different Conception of the Italian Renaissance and Stones of Rimini
Adrian Stokes
January 2002
Times Literary Supplement, December 20, 2002
"This reissue prints both texts and photographs in as generous as a format as the originals, with illuminating introductory essays."

Book Description
Written as parts of an incomplete trilogy, The Quattro Cento and Stones of Rimini mark a crossroads in the transition from late Victorian to Modernist conceptions of art, especially sculpture and architecture. Stokes continued, even extended, John Ruskin’s and Walter Pater’s belief that art is essential to the individual’s proper psychological development but wove their teaching into a new aesthetic shaped by his experience of psychoanalysis with Melanie Klein and recent innovations in literature, dance, and the visual arts. Few writers have been able to invoke the material presence of...

Sienese Painting: From Duccio to the Birth of the Baroque
Giulietta Chelazzi Dini, et al
September 1998
Book Review
Sienese painting is often thought of in reference to the strikingly colorful and beautifully designed paintings of Duccio di Buoninsegna, Simone Martini, and the Lorenzetti brothers, from the dawn of the Italian Renaissance. This sumptuous book carefully traces that glorious early heritage. But it also extends its reach forward to about 1700 in order to include many later artists, with whom readers may not be as familiar, such as Rutilio Manetti, whose passionate style was radically altered after he came into contact with the revolutionary work of Caravaggio. The last chapters contain Baroque paintings of extraordinary color and warmth, such as Domenico Beccafumi's shadowy, sweet Annunciation. Nonetheless, it is the almost magically compelling early Sienese masters who dominate this volume. Lorenzetti's intricate Effects of...

Book Description
Duccio di Buoninsegna, one of the greatest of the early Italian painters, was the father of the Sienese school.

Alvaro Siza (Archipocket)
Alvaro Siza, et al

Architectural Science Review
"...clearly translated and competently translated." --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Book Description
Alvaro Siza (1933) studied at the School of Architecture of the University of Oporto. Between 1955 and 1958 he worked in the studio of Fernando Tavora. he embarked on his professional career with the Boa Nova Restaurant (Leca da Palmeira, 1963). In this initial phase, his works combined modern typology with the vernacular tradition. Nonetheless, he constantly returns to clear volumes, like the great white parallellepiped of Avelino Duarte House (Ovar, 1985), which brings together all his earlier experience of housing typologies, including his major intervention in this area Quinta da Malagueira (Evora, 1977). Since the eighties, he has...
