Highlighting the achievements of a lesser-known Italian painter who played a prominent role in artistic developments in the Venetian town of Feltre during the 16th century, this scholarly catalogue provides good reproductions and detailed examinations of 25 religious tableaux and portraits by Marascalchi (1522-1589) along with eight paintings by Lorenzo Luzzo and other contemporary artists of the region. Analyses of the recent restoration of many of the featured works and documentation of fourteen additional canvases and frescoes by Marascalchi, Luzzo and other painters in the Feltre area accompany twelve well-illustrated essays that include examinations of Marascalchi's career, the influence of Andrea Schiavone on his oeuvre and questions of attribution involving his works as well as discussions of such topics as the reconstruction of Feltre following its pillage and incineration in 1510, the flourishing of fresco painting in the town, and the character of its art and architecture during the Cinquecento.
