If you approach Venice by way of the lagoon, the city appears to be
as homogenous as a single building. But as soon as you step into
its shadowy alleys, you will be captivated by the architectural
finesse of the palazzi, churches, and private residential palaces
where the eye is drawn to the dazzling stylistic variety of Moorish
window arches adjacent to balconies in Venetian Gothic and severe
Renaissance facades. This classic volume offers detailed insight
into the broad spectrum of architecture, sculpture, and painting of
the city on the lagoon. The authors chronologically progress
through the stages of Venetian art history from the thirteenth to
the sixteenth centuries. More than 500 illustrations document the
eventful artistic development of this exceptional city, whose
monuments have been largely preserved until today.
