To mark the 500th anniversary of the birth of Italian painter Jacopo Tintoretto this month, we’re giving away a copy of Tintoretto: Tradition and Identity, Tom Nichols's enlightening and beautifully illustrated study of the artist’s life and work.

In this second expanded paperback edition, Tom Nichols charts the artist’s life in the context of Venetian art and the culture of the Cinquecento. This generously illustrated book deals extensively with Tintoretto’s greatest works, including the paintings at the Scuola di San Rocco in Venice, and offers a long-overdue re-evaluation of Tintoretto.
