Giotto (painter and architect) was one of the first artist to feature highly-detailed architecture in a primary role in his paintings.
This book offers an analysis of Giotto's painted architecture, focusing on issues of structural logic, clarity of composition, and its role within the narrative of the painting. The conventions established by Giotto remained at the heart of early modern Italian painting.
