"Art, Power, and Patronage in Renaissance Italy has a freshness and breadth of approach that sets the art in its context, exploring why it was created and who commissioned the palaces, cathedrals, paintings, and sculptures. For, as the authors claim, Italian Renaissance artists were no more solitary geniuses than are most architects and commercial artists today." "This book covers not only the foremost artistic centers of Rome and Florence. Here too are Venice and the Veneto, Assisi, Siena, Milan, Pavia, Genoa, Padua, Mantua, Verona, Ferrara, Urbino, and Naples - each city revealing unique political and social structures that influenced its artistic styles." "The book includes genealogies of influential families, listings of popes and doges, plans of cities, a time chart, a bibliography, a glossary, and an index."--BOOK JACKET.
