Bayer, Andrea.
North of the Apennines. Sixteenth-Century Italian Painting in Lombardy and Emilia-Romagna.

New York Metropolitan Museum of Art: 2003.

"By the end of the fifteenth century, a remarkable number of Italian cities north of the Apennines were firmly established as great artistic centers. These included cities with dazzling courts, such as Milan, Bologna, Ferrara, Mantua, and the Republic of Venice. Distinct regional characteristics became evident between these schools of painting for example, in Lombardy, beginning in the late fifteenth century, there was a fascination with the visual effects of perspective. In Emilia, there were other interests, such as a desire to emulate Raphael and other artists active in central Italy, and the creation of paintings suggestive of poetry. Nonetheless, painters in the two regions shared many artistic goals, and for contemporary art critics these geographical differences sometimes seem to have scarcely mattered. In this publication, a former Met Bulletin, Andrea Bayer presents a rich selection of sixteenth century artists of Lombardy and its capital, Milan, and of Emilia-Romagna and its principal city, Bologna".
