Renaissance Mysteries, Volume II : Proportion and Composition, by Michael Price

Michael Price: Renaissance Mysteries Volume II

Proportion and Composition, 260 pages, 22 x 28 cm

Volume II, the artist as a creative intellectual, links the painter’s craft with the creative process and elucidates the degree of compositional planning starting with the painting’s rectangular format. The demonstrated evidence for the application of Euclidean geometry is based upon exact measurements of painted surfaces on panels, X-radiographs, and infrared images from paintings. The final chapter concludes with the reasons for the demise of this painting tradition and how industrialization and the standardization of art materials led to a new painting tradition from the nineteenth century.
