A magnificent, never-before-published collection of every
painting and fresco on display in the Uffizi, the Galleria Palatina of
the Pitti Palace, the Accademia, and the Duomo, and more — nearly 2,000
works of art — all presented in a beautiful slipcased package.
Ross King, bestselling author of Brunelleschi’s Dome and Michelangelo and the Pope’s Ceiling,
explores the history of art in Florence through seven introductory
essays connecting the paintings, politics, the every day life of
Florentines and how they influenced each other. Art historian Anja Grebe
(author of The Louvre and The Vatican), highlights two hundred and fifty of the most iconic and significant paintings and frescoes around the historic city.
