Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In these essays, most of them originally published in The New York Review of Books, Ingrid Rowland explores topics pertaining to the art and culture of Renaissance Italy. She ranges from the lives and works of its greatest painters - Titian, Leonardo, Caravaggio, Correggio, and Botticelli - to the urban and political life of Venice, Florence, and Rome. She also discusses themes of sexuality and eroticism in Renaissance literature and society, the enduring fascination with ancient Egypt, and polymathic Renaissance scholars such as Girolamo Cardano, Giordano Bruno, Galileo, and Athanasius Kircher.
