This book focuses attention on the theme of the artist and especially the changing status of the artist in the early modern period. In a series of case studies-some devoted to a single artist and others dealing more broadly with artistic practice-the authors explore and question the widely held notion that the later fifteenth and sixteenth centuries witnessed the emergence of the modern idea of the artist.
