A vigorous and exciting sheet of studies exploring different approaches to a violent subject, the theme of a bloodthirsty civic revolt in Florence.

On the reverse is an extraordinary panoramic view of the surging battle seen from the Loggia dei Lanzi. The subject is from Tuscan medieval history, the rise of the Florentines in 1343 against their despotic ruler Walter VI of Brienne, the 'Duke of Athens'.


Herbert List (1903-1975); Wolfgang Ratjen (1943-1997); Colnaghi.
