The namesake of the Palladian window, late Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio cultivated his own interpretation of round-arched, Romanesque motifs, recombining many elements of classical style. He constructed several churches in Venice, including Il Redentore and the church of the Convent of San Giorgio Maggiore, both reviewed in this volume, as well as a number of villas that used the motifs of ancient Greco-Roman temple fronts in their porticoes. His last great work was the theatre in Vicenza built for the Academia Olimpica in 1580. Each volume in this series of compact architectural monographs highlights the work of a renowned architect. Largely visual, the books typically review some ten or twelve important structures in 150 color photographs and additional plans and details, with brief introductory essays in English, German, Italian, and French, and a chronology.
