Summary

enaissance Architecture offers a broad cultural history of the period as well as a completely new approach to the subject. The work of well-known architects such as Michelangelo and Andrea Palladio is examined alongside lesser known though no less innovative designers such as Juan Guas in Portugal and Benedikt Ried in Prague and Eastern Europe. Drawing on the latest research, it also covers more recent areas of interest such as the story of women as patrons andthe emotional effect of Renaissance buildings, as well as the impact of architectural publications and travel on the emerging new architectural culture across Europe. As such, it provides a compelling introduction to the subject for all those interested in the history of architecture, society, and culture in the Renaissance, and European culture in general.

Author Biography


Christy Anderson is Associate Professor of Art History at the University of Toronto. She is an architectural historian with a special interest in the buildings of Renaissance and Baroque Europe. As a Kress Fellow at the Courtauld Institute of Art and later as a Research Fellow at Worcester College, Oxford, she studied the annotations made by the English architect Inigo Jones (1573-1652) in his collection of treatises and humanist literature. This work on literacy, architectural language, and the construction of the professional architect appeared in her book Inigo Jones and the Classical Tradition (Cambridge, 2006). Her new work, supported by a fellowship from the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation, explores the meanings of architectural materials in early modern Europe.
