This is the first study in English of Altichiero, one of the most important painters of the later Italian Trecento. Altichiero worked exclusively for the despotic rulers of Verona and Padua, translating their chivalric aspirations into fresco cycles of extraordinary beauty and originality. Altichiero, whose work is indebted to Giotto, worked in close collaboration with Petrarch. In addition to an informative catalogue and bibliography, the book also contains a wealth of illustrations in both color and black and white that bring the work and world of Altichiero to life.Reviews"Richards' study ... brings across the richness and beauty of Altichiero's frescos and goes a long way towards achieving his aim, as stated above, of celebrating the artist who revived and reinvented the principles of Giottesche painting for the later Trecento."--The Art Book"On the scale between workmanlike and trendy, this revised doctoral thesis (1988) errs on the former side, but it is, nevertheless, a credible threatment of an important and understudied topic."
