  • Material and Mental Craft in Quattrocento Italy: Several Hypotheses Concerning the Studioli

    Architecture and Memory: The Renaissance Studioli of Federico da Montefeltro

  • Such are the characteristics, the spirit and the sentiment that appear in the works of Fra Angelico, who might be considered as the last representative of that school of which Giotto was master; and at the same time the initiator of "Quattrocento" art, whose powerful development irresistibly attracted him.

    Fra Angelico

  • Now, in what must be one of the most superbly realized Renaissance shows in living memory, Quattrocento Italy comes to life on Berlin's Museum Island.

    Personifying the Renaissance

  • In the earlier history of Western painting, from the Quattrocento through the Baroque, the portrait had mostly been both a means for conveying the specific data of a sitter's face and a machine for flattering him: It revealed him in his perfection, the best he could possibly look, wearing his finest and most ceremonious attire and surrounded by the attributes of his wealth and fame.

    A Tour de Force, Honest and Engaging

  • The result is a cosmopolitan spread of work whose origins range from Italy in the Quattrocento to wartime New York.

    Naked Cruelty

    Proto social inquiry

  • It's true that you'd have to start apprenticing tweens to get the skill levels we used to see in artists in their early twenties, but median lifespans have doubled or tripled since the Quattrocento and photography closes a lot of the skill gap.

    Jonathon Jones says things about art

  • Starting with the school of Siena and such artists as Deodato di Orlando and Guido di Graziano, the exhibit progresses through the Quattrocento and on to Florence, as idealized faces become more realistic, static drapery flows into graceful folds and flat gilded surfaces give way to distant landscapes in works by Lorenzo Monaco, Liberale da Verona and Fra Angelico.
