Raphael's Madonnas: Images for the Soul Location: 759.5 STE 2016
The Madonna is a central icon in western culture and religion, representing the 'eternal feminine'. At once divine but earthly, cosmic but human, she has a unique spirituality which draws us in and invites contemplation and reflection. This beautiful collection of 43 colour images of the Madonna by Raphael can be used for meditation, prayer or simply for appreciation.
Location: 759.5 DEI 2017
This essential introduction presents key works from Botticelli’s oeuvre to understand the making of a Renaissance legend. Through the painter’s most famous mythological and allegorical scenes, as well as his radiant religious works, we explore a mastery of figuration, movement, and line.
Titian and the End of the Venetian Renaissance Location: 759.03 NIC 2013
This comprehensive, highly illustrated new study examines Titian's long career and varied output. Tom Nichols argues that Titian's works were self-consciously original, freely and intentionally undermining the traditional, more modest approach to painting in Venice at that time.

Leonardo da Vinci: Under the Skin
Location: 741.945 FAR 2019
