Wonderful book together with the previously purchased the 5 books about the frescoes, I have an excellent collection.The book arrived within a few days thank you.Yigal Lotan. Italian Mosaics is the first comprehensive and well researched overview of the many stunning examples of the art that still survive It is lavishly illustrated with superb color plates, the majority of them new, specially commissioned photographs This volume focuses on Early Christian and medieval mosaics in Italy Each of the nineteen chapters is concise and authoritative, offering a descriptive and interpretive essay on all aspects of mosaics covering the artists and their patrons in the context of their cultural and political history Most essays conclude with a diagram of the site, followed by a series of full and double page color plates showing the entire cycle While this volume is the predecessor to the Italian Frescoes series, it also stands alone as a masterpiece of art and scholarship, which will be welcomed by art lovers and art historians alike
