Passion in Venice: Crivelli to Tintoretto and Veronese, edited by Drs. Catherine Puglisi and William Barcham, is a beautifully illustrated volume which explores one of the central themes of Christian art: Christ as the Man of Sorrows. Drawing from some of the works of the greatest painters in the Venetian artistic tradition, including Veronese, Tintoretto, Crivelli, Vivarini, Giambono and the Bassano family, Passion in Venice creates a new and illuminating context for these remarkable masters by considering their works alongside contemporary works in other media and from other parts of Western Europe, including Tuscany, France, Spain, Germany and the Netherlands.

This volume examines the rich visual tradition of this Passion image in Venice and it's territories, which flourished over three centuries in all the arts and outstripped other Western European schools in terms of output and the number of artists committed to the subject.
