Fashioning Identities in Renaissance Art
Ashgate, 2000 - Art - 241 pages
An analysis of some of the different ways in which identities were fashioned in and with art during the Renaissance, taken as meaning the period c. 1300 to 1600. The notion of such a search for new identities, expressed in a variety of new themes, styles and genres, has been all-pervasive in the historical and critical literature dealing with the period, starting with Burckhardt, and it has been given a new impetus by contemporary scholarship using a variety of methodological approaches.
