Now in paperback, At Home in Renaissance Italy draws together an impressive range of ideas and objects—from sumptuous paintings and textiles to kitchen utensils, popular prints, jewelry, and everyday dress—to reveal how the homes of the upper and middle classes made a crucial contribution to the flowering of the visual arts in 15th- and 16th-century Italy. Drawing on a wide array of sources, including contemporary letters, inventories, and archaeological surveys, and presenting luminous works by artists such as Ghirlandaio, Titian, Della Robbia, and other Renaissance masters, it offers a completely fresh and in-depth exploration of the fascinating domestic world of Renaissance Italy.
