Largely as a result of Leonardo's innovative work for the Sforza court in Milan, a rich vein of naturalism developed in North Italian art during the late fifteenth century. Questioning the strongly classicizing, idealized style dominant in areas south of the Apennines, artists in the region of Lombardy turned to an investigation of the natural world based on direct observation and adherence to strict visual truth. This heritage of realism continued to be of key importance for more than two hundred years, finding its greatest expression in the art of Caravaggio and eventually influencing the course of Baroque painting throughout Europe. Religious scenes, portraits, and landscapes were all transformed by this new naturalism, which also spurred an interest in still lifes and genre scenes as subjects for paintings. Painters of Reality, titled after an influential exhibition held in Milan more than fifty years ago, is the first study in English of this major aspect of Italian art. Reexamining the subject in light of copious subsequent scholarship, the authors of this volume contribute major essays that define and discuss naturalism as it appeared in both Lombard paintings and drawings. There is also a fresh consideration of the Northern Italian predecessors whose influence is apparent, either directly or indirectly, in the paintings of Caravaggio. More detailed discussions of the subject center on the precise elements that constituted Leonardo's "hypernaturalism"; the important schools of painting that arose in Brescia, Bergamo, Cremona, and Milan; and Caravaggio's most notable successors in northern Italy, who kept Lombard realism alive into the eighteenth century. Map, artists' biographies, bibliography, and index are also included. -- Metropolitan Museum of Art website.

This book is aimed at promoting the Region of Lombardy and raising awareness of the triumph of flavours, emotions, traditions and quality preserved in the fruits of its lands. With 1.3m hectares of agricultural territory, our region has the largest area dedicated to this sector in Italy. This primary position results not only from thousands of years of evolution, but also and above all from a laboratory fomenting future-oriented ideas, innovations and technology, which guarantee the production of healthy, genuine foodstuffs that are certified and protected. Leafing through the recipes is like going on a journey, just as the title suggests – by following Lombardy’s 12 Wine and Food Roads, the reader is led to rediscover the region's typical dishes which, handed down through the generations with great love and enthusiasm, contribute to the enhancement of a unique heritage consisting of 248 excellent agricultural products and foodstuffs, of which 31 have PDO or PGI status (13% of the branded products of Italian origin), and 42 wines with DOCG, DOC or IGT denominations. Each route includes an introduction to the area in question and 5 recipes with wine pairings, which enables the planning of a complete menu.
