Editorial Reviews


"Hollingsworth pursues her subject from Florence to Venice, into five of Italy's independent princely states (Milan, Ferrara, Mantua, Urbino, and Naples) before ending with the papal court at Rome. She writes authoritatively, drawing on a vast store of knowledge." -- Sunday Times

"An absorbing study of fifteenth-century patrons and artists... A vivid, lively account of a complex society in which art was made to express the wealth, status, worldly concerns, and religious aspirations of its patrons." -- Art Quarterly

About the Author

Mary Hollingsworth is the author of A History of World Art and Architecture of the Twentieth Century. Currently living in Florence, she has taught Renaissance patronage and design on both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
