The papers collected in this book provide many new observations about the artistic interrelationship between Italy and the cities of the Dalmatian coast during the fifteenth century, with special attention given to the influence on both sides of the Adriatic of the styles of Donatello in sculpture, Squarcione in painting, and Alberti in architecture.

Essays are devoted to fifteenth-century painting in Dalmatia and its ties to the opposite shore to the centrality of Padua in diffusing artistic ideas throughout the Adriatic to Venetian sovereignty over Dalmatia to Renaissance villas on the Dalmatian coast to the architectural activity of Michelozzo and his shop in Dubrovnik to the Chapel of the Planets in the Tempio Malatestiano at Rimini to the Chapel of the Blessed Giovanni Orsini at Trogir to Niccol˛ di Giovanni Fiorentino's work in Dalmatia to Giovanni Dalmata's work in Italy and to humanist poetic inscriptions devised for statues in Dubrovnik by Lorenzo Guidetti. The contract between the Opera of the Cathedral at Trogir and the stonecutters Niccol˛ di Giovanni Fiorentino and Adrea Alessi is transcribed in an Appendix.
