Synopsis

The revised definitive work on the great Genoese painter Bernardo StrozziBernardo Strozzi was known as one of the greatest painters of his time, not only in his native city but also, as a fugitive, in Venice, where he became the most widely esteemed artist of the lagoon territory. To support his success and his entrepreneurial spirit, he taught a large number of assistants an employed them in intensive workshop production. This has led a very inflated catalogue of spurious works, tarnishing a the image of Strozzi's painting. This book is the product of a rigorous review of his oeuvre and restores the greatness of an artist whose pictorial talent very few were able to match.
