"Domenico Ghirlandaio [1449-1494] was one of the most popular artists in fifteenth-century Florence. He worked in a variety of media, including panel paintings, wall murals, mosaic, and manuscript illumination, and his workshop -- to which Michelangelo was apprenticed -- was highly influential. This beautiful book offers a radically new interpretation of Ghirlandaio's life and work, viewing him primarily as an artisan active within the craft traditions, guild structure, and workshop organizations of his day. ... Complemented by a catalouge raisonne of Ghirlandaio's works in all media as well as an appendix of documents useful for scholars. An essential resource. (Inventory #: 141194)
