The largest and most significant collection of its kind in the American Southeast, the Ringling’s more than 300 Italian, Spanish and French paintings include important works by well-known artists such as Cortona, Piero di Cosimo, Guercino, Rosa, Strozzi, Tiepolo and Veronese; Coypel, Nattier and Raoux; and Cano, Ribera and Velázquez. A rich resource for scholars and enthusiasts alike, this elegantly designed book includes comprehensive entries for each painting with details of technique and materials, provenance, patronage, attribution, date, subject, iconography, conservation history and bibliography, all accompanied by vivid, newly commissioned colour photography of each work.
