Andrea Pisano, the creator of the first set of bronze doors on the Baptistry of Florence, is universally acknowledged as the most important Italian sculptor of the fourteenth century. Andreas son, Nino, was a significant sculptor in his own right. Dr Anita Moscowitz brings the artistic personality of the artists, who have hitherto been neglected figures in the history of art, clearly into focus. She shows that together the work of the artists reflects two major currents in the European areni: late manifestation of the Parisian court style, and the beginnings of the Italian renaissance style in sculpture. The book includes many high-quality illustrations.
