Assembling writings that are as disparate as they are sometimes hard to retrieve, it permits readers to consider the state of scholarship on a variety of specific problems surround Giottos life and sheds light on larger historical issue concerning early Italian art and culture.

In doing so, the series lays bare the methodological preoccupations of scholars since the nineteenth century. Above all, matters of connoisseurship and the larger question of the nature of the matters art have governed the study of Giotto. Perhaps in part because of the intractability of the problems involved in arriving at an agreed-upon catalogue and chronology for Giotto, the Arena Chapel has served the chief means of demonstrating Giottos pictorial subtlety, his dramatic range, and his intellectual depth.

Curiously, the Arena Chapel came to be regarded as the cornerstone of Giottos genius only in the nineteenth century. The notion of the essentially sculptural character of Giottos art, pervasive in modern scholarship, is likewise recent, acquiring canonical status thanks to Bernard Berensons celebration of tactile values in the Ognissanti Madonna.The second volume focuses on Giottos chief work, the cycle of murals in the Arena Chapel, Padua.
