From the cover: “As the pioneer of a new conception of art, Piero della Francesca (ca. 1420-1492) had a lasting influence on the development of Italian art in the mid-15th century. The glowing colours and spiritual calm of his compositions, and the equally powerful and sublime figures in his pictures form a highlight of Early Renaissance painting, at the same time radiating an astonishingly modern atmosphere. He succeeded as scarcely any other artist before and since in harmonizing his own philosophy of life, characterized by devoutness and spirituality, with the artistic and scientific discoveries of his age. This made Piero one of the most important artists linking the Gothic and Renaissance eras, tradition and the modern age.”
