What Great Paintings Say. Italian Renaissance20
Classics under the Magnifying Glass
Italy’s most precious painting treasures dissected
Images of war, romance, birth, and knowledge, works of the Italian Renaissance have much to say, when given a voice. Rose-Marie and Rainer Hagen do just that—pulling apart each of the 12 featured paintings with all the talent of true detectives to offer an illuminating portal to the past.
From Michelangelo’s The Creation of Adam to Ucello’s The Battle of San Romano, from Antonello da Messina’s St. Jerome in His Study to Pinturicchio’s Penelope with the Suitors, the artworks under investigation are a diverse representation of the period’s innovation and brilliance, sourced directly from some of the most impressive collections in the world, including the Uffizi, Prado, and National Gallery London.
Rose-Marie Hagen (1928 - 2022) was born in Switzerland and studied history, Romance languages, and literature in Lausanne. After further studies in Paris and Florence, she lectured at the American University in Washington, D.C.
Rainer Hagen was born in Hamburg and graduated in literature and theater studies in Munich. He later worked for radio and TV, most recently as chief editor of a German public broadcasting service. Together they have collaborated on several TASCHEN titles, including Masterpieces in Detail, Pieter Bruegel, and Francisco de Goya.
