Chronologically ordered, this is a valid and complete aid for furthering the understanding of all of Simone Martini’s artistic endeavors. Enriched with an abundant iconographic documentation, it is a pleasant tool that helps the reader comprehend the artistic works of the sensitive and refined master of Gothic era, from his emulations of Cimabue and Duccio, his first teachers, to his understanding of the new and cultured opportunities of the Sienese goldsmiths to his reflections of Giotto’s work. Martini was undervalued for a long time because of the negative opinion that Giorgio Vasari had of him. This book is a complete and thorough biography of an artist who demonstrated sensitivity to innovation and whose interpretations of both sacred and profane themes were very refined.
