This is an excellent book on Andrea Palladio. The author has done extensive research on the famous renaissance architect, Andrea Palladio. The author goes into more detail than I wanted to know but nevertheless, extensive and detailed information was provided on Palladio's clients. The author did a good job of analyzing the influences of architects such as Vitruvius, Raphael, Serlio & Sanmicheli. This book takes you on the journey thru Palladio's career covering his early works from Vicenza to Venice to include his palaces, civic buildings (Basilica), churches (San Giorgio Maggiore) & villas (Villa Rotunda). The author even provides the names of the artists who painted the frescoes and created the beautiful sculptures. References to Palladio's Quattro Libri or Four Books on Architecture are referenced throughout the book and include a separate chapter on the Quattro Libri.
