Feud That Sparked the Renaissance by Paul Robert Walker

Book Description

A lively and intriguing tale of the competition between two artists, culminating in the construction of the Duomo in Florence, this is also the story of a city on the verge of greatness, and the dawn of the Renaissance, when everything artistic would change. Florence s Duomo - the dome of the Santa Maria del Fiore cathedral - is one of the most enduring symbols of the Italian Renaissance, an equal in influence and fame to Leonardo and Michaelangelo s works. It was designed by Filippo Brunelleschi, the temperamental architect who rediscovered the techniques of mathematical perspective. He was the dome s inventor, whose secret methods for building remain a mystery as compelling to architects as Fermat s Last Theorem once was to mathematicians. Yet Brunelleschi didn t direct the construction of the dome alone. He was forced to share the commission with his arch-rival, the sculptor Lorenzo Ghiberti, whose Paradise Doors are also masterworks. This is the story of these two men - a tale of artistic genius and individual triumph. "
