Curiously, Francesca Flores d’Arcais, though considering Longhi’s reconstruction valid, also adduced some stylistic divergences between the panels in Chaalis and Florence, in Francesca Flores d’Arcais, Giotto (Milan, 1995), 320, 324. Only in recent years, however, were Cämmerer-­George’s doubts accepted by Giovanna Ragionieri, in Giovanni Previtali and Giovanna Ragionieri, Giotto e la sua bottega, e. Other manuscripts of Villani’s book only report the presence of Giotto’s frescoes in this chapel; cf. Schwarz and Theis 2004, 290. Of the four panels cited in Santa Croce, that of the Baroncelli Chapel is still in situ.

Vasari famously wrote that Giotto "recovered the true method of painting, which been lost for many years before him," and indeed he is traditionally considered a founder of the Italian Renaissance. Producing a series of commissioned works for the church and upper classes in his native Tuscany and surrounding regions, Giotto changed the course of European art by breaking away from the rigid, stereotyped figures of the Byzantine and Giotto medieval traditions. His innovation was to give his characters natural movement and expression. His great fresco cycles, such as the lives of the Virgin and Christ in the Scrovegni (or Arena) Chapel, Padua, are populated with realistic depictions of three-dimensional figures; secondary characters, both comic and tragic, display the range of the painter's wit and invention. And Giotto's treatment of perspective was just as revolutionary as his approach to the human form. The dramatic power of his scenes is heightened by the convincing illusionistic spaces in which he places them. In this authoritative survey of Giotto's life and work, Professor Francesca Flores d'Arcais draws on an impressive range of sources, from fourteenth-century documents to the most recent art - historical investigations. Her research leads her to important re-attributions of Giottesque paintings and to new conclusions regarding the execution and dating of both famous and lesser-known works. This second edition also includes a discussion of the earthquake of September 29, 1997 that damaged the frescoes of the Upper Basilica of San Francesco in Assisi - some of which are attributed to the artist in the early phase of his career - and the restoration effort that followed.More than three hundred illustrations, most in full color and some on double gatefold pages, reproduce all of Giotto's important frescoes in exquisite detail, as well as his moving crucifixes and jewel-like polyptychs. These illustrations are based on new photography of Giotto's paintings, many of which have recently been restored to their original brilliance, making this the definitive monograph on the greatest of trecento masters.

This book is a very high-quality addition to the literature on Giotto. The text follows both a chronological pattern and a thematic selection (with such themes as color or architecture in the master's works). In-depths studies of the famous cycles in Assisi (the St Francis Basilica, lower and upper), in Padua (the incomparable Scrovegni Chapel) or Florence (the Bardi Chapel in Santa Croce) are accompanied by thorough analyses of individual works and historical facts about Giotto's relationship with his patrons and his pupils. The illustrations are absolutely fantastic, with a profusion of magnified details and a rendereing of colors which is seldom found in artbooks.

Highly recommended as much more than a beautiful coffe-table book.

First of all: This is a gorgeous book with a lot of beautiful reproductions of Giotto's works. But after believing the publishers claim that most reproductions are in colour, I was disappointed by how many of them were actually in black in white; and this even includes many paintings covering a full page. In many cases, this seems completely unnecessary since other depictions of the same painting are in colour. So a complete view of a fresco might be in colour, while several detail photos are in black and white. If you go the publisher's page you then discover the more detailled and accurate account: '350 illustrations, 200 in full color'. 150 black and white illustrations doesn't add up to the claim 'most in full color'. So while this book is gorgeous, the description is misleading and I would have enjoyed it more if most or all of the illustrations had actually been in colour. What's also a bit peculiar is that the publisher didn't choose large paintings for the foldouts, but used several disconnected parts of paintings for those. The whole point of a foldout page to me is to get a large view of one large painting. I'm not quite sure why they did it like this. But again: The book is great, it could just have been a better if the issue of illustrations had been handled better. Giotto created truly beautiful works of art, so I appreciate there being a book about him.
