Text in Italian. Piero della Francesca's Legend of the Cross (Frescoes in Arezzo, Italy). Includes an essay about Piero in Arezzo and a list of plate titles. The 39 color plates are very rich in color and show all the shading and effects of longevity of the frescoes. The signature with Plate IV and V is detached, seemingly on purpose. If held above Plate VI, Plate IV makes a more complete picture. Plate XI is a gatefold.

Price: $50.00
