A comprehensive study of the important Florentine architect and sculptor Filippo Brunelleschi (1377-1446). Art historian Eugenio Battisti considers Brunelleschi’s contribution to Renaissance culture, discussing his experiments with perspective and his development of a rational architectural language from his study of antiquity. The book is a detailed record of all Brunelleschi’s major works including The Foundling Hospital (c.1419-45), the Pazzi Chapel (c1441-1460) and his remarkable dome of S Maria del Fiore (c.1420-1436). It also includes his military projects and his work as a goldsmith and sculptor.
