This book is both an introduction to fifteenth-century Italian painting, and a primer in how to read social history out of the style of pictures. It examines the commercial practice of the early Renaissance picture, trade in contracts, letters, and accounts; and it explains how the visual skills and habits evolved in the daily life of any society enter into its painters' style. Renaissance painting is related for instance to experience of such activities as
preaching, dancing, and gauging barrels.

This second edition contains an appendix, the original Latin and Italian texts referred to throughout the book, giving the student access to all the relevant, authentic sources.

Genevieve Warwick, History Today It is now almost 50 years since Painting and Experience was first published, yet it retains its power to reconceptualise the History of Art in ways that both closely define and open up to the broadest possible interpretation of what is the very best about the discipline.
