Additional information: This book is my major career publication to date, and represents the culmination of 20 years work. The anonymous external readers appointed by YUP described it as “an important and original contribution to Italian Renaissance art-historical study … the serious and comprehensive monograph that Signorelli richly deserves … [and] destined to be the definitive treatment of his life and work”. It has been positively reviewed in The Spectator (David Ekserdjian), the Evening Standard (Brian Sewell), the London Review of Books (Charles Hope) and is to be reviewed in the Burlington Magazine (forthcoming). On the one hand it is a traditional art historical monograph, and discusses every painting and drawing that the artist produced, and every document for his life and career, in a largely chronological sequence. On the other it has a methodological underpinning that promotes monographic study and the incorporation of an artist’s catalogue and the documentation for an artist’s life into a historical account that examines major conceptual issues of the Italian Renaissance as a whole, such as ideas of centre and periphery, of career development, and of the respective roles of artists and advisors.
