An important figure in Florentine painting of the second half of the fifteenth century, Cosimo Rosselli (1439-1507?) painted over sixty works including altarpieces, frescos, panels, miniatures and decorative pieces. His masterpiece is in the Cappella Sistina where, in 1481-1482, he worked alongside Sandro Botticelli, Pietro Perugino and Domenico Ghirlandaio. This book is the result of more than ten years of research in museums and collections across the world, and it is the first systematic study of the life and work of Cosimo Rosselli, including over 200 reproductions. The two introductory essays bring into focus his biography, journeys, figurative sources and evolution of style.
