Abstract/Summary The Giulio Romano exhibition in Mantua in 1989 was the occasion for the publication, for the first time, of a full and thorough account of Giulio's art. A hugely successful catalogue, published by the Milanese house, Electa, Giulio Romano brought to the public's attention the extraordinary range of the artist's activities as painter, architect, stage designer and draughtsman, and placed his work within the context of the political, economic and social conditions of the court of the Gonzagas, for whom he worked. This illustrated book, edited from the original Italian catalogue, brings together essays by a distinguished team of scholars to provide a full picture of Giulio's activities as architect, following his career from Rome through to Mantua and his late work at the Veneto. It offers for the first time in English a full account of one of the great architects of the High Renaissance.
