Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 071122921X, Hardcover)

This thoughtful collection of essays examines Croatia’s cultural and artistic history, from the Roman remains on the Adriatic coast through the Gothic splendor of the Dalmatian cities to the intensive Renaissance-era artistic exchange with Italy, and beyond. Timothy Clifford, Marcus Binney, Brian Sewell, and other leading British and American art historians and scholars cover iconic monuments like Diocletian's palace at Split and the walled city of Dubrovnik alongside more unfamiliar treasures. Illustrated with more than 250 lush color photos, it presents a captivating portrait of this little-known country.
