Hard covered book titled THE WORLD'S MASTERPIECES, ITALIAN by M. Le Frere Carroll and Frances Cavanah, 1939, 28 pages.
Profusely illustrated with color plates and clack & white illustrations, this book traces Italian art through the time of its greatest glory, the days of the Renaissance. Here are presented the painting of Raphael, Giotto, Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Bellini, Titian, and many others whose art is found in the great museums of the world. Along with these pictures is the story of the artists and their works.
This vintage book is in VG condition, pages clean and intact, and the binding is tight. The end pages are beautifully marbled. A previous owner's name inside front cover. Pages are slightly yellowed from age. The dust jacket is scuffed, torn and chipped at the edges. Would make a great addition to any art library.
