Not sure if this has been discussed before but I wanted to start a thread devoted to Art History.

I have a list of books that I can recommend to anyone interested in the Renaissance; easily my favourite period in art.

- The Nude, Kenneth Clark
- Civilisation, Kenneth Clark
- Italian Painters of the Renaissance, Bernard Berenson
- Classic Art, Heinrich Wolfflin
- Principles of Art History, Heinrich Wolfflin
- Michelangelo, Adrian Stokes.
- Lives of the Artists, Giorgio Vasari

Post any books you've read and enjoyed, even if it's from another art movement, because I'd love to find out more!
