Title: GIOTTO AND THE PRE-RENAISSANCE
Movie ID: VT2721
Movie Number: 2721
Description: He is called "one of the lights of Florentine glory." His frescoes literally shimmer with a three-dimensional quality that is unmatched even by the sculptors of his day. He is the undisputed master of the Florentine painters...Giotto di Bondoni. This motion picture documentary vibrantly records each of the major cycles of Giotto's frescoes in superb detail, many filmed here for the first time. Included are his best-preserved, most renowned masterpieces at the Upper and Lower Church of San Francesco, Assisi, the Arena Chapel in Padua, and St. Croce in Florence. His bold innovations are sharply contrasted against the somber Italian art of the period. Giotto and the Pre-Renaissance conveys as never before the powerful emotion of the great master's work. It is truly and artistic experience that cannot be contained in any museum.
