SummaryThis Companion is an introduction to one of the most important masters of early Italian art. An overview of Giotto's life and career offers essays by leading authorities on his critical reception as well as an analysis of workshop practices of the period and the complexities of religious and secular patronage. Serving as an essential resource for students of late medieval and early Renaissance Italy, the book also provides a chronology of the artist's life and a select but comprehensive bibliography.
