Parution : Holly Flora et Sarah Wilkins (dir.), Art and Experience in Trecento Italy, Turnhout, Brepols, 2019

The age of Giotto, Dante, and Boccaccio, the fourteenth century in Italy, known as the trecento, was a pivotal moment in art history and in European culture. The studies in this volume present new approaches to art in this important but often neglected period of the early Renaissance. Scholars at various stages in their careers discuss a wide range of topics including architecture, materiality, politics, patronage, and devotion, contributing to a new understanding of how art was made and experienced in this nodal century. These papers were originally presented at the Andrew Ladis Trecento Conference held at Tulane University in November of 2016.

Holly Flora is Associate Professor of Art History at Tulane University. Sarah Wilkins is Visiting Assistant Professor of Art History at Pratt Institute.
