Ashgate, Jan 1, 2005 - History - 300 pages
The historiography of the Italian Renaissance has been much studied, but generally in the context of a few key figures. Much less appreciated is the extent of the enthusiasm for the subject in the 19th and early 20th centuries, when the subject was discovered by travellers and men and women of letters, historians, artists, architects and photographers, and by collectors on both sides of the Atlantic. The essays in this volume explore the breadth of the responses stimulated by the encounter between the British, the Americans and the Italians of the Renaissance.
