Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the first book which gives a general overview of women as subject-matter in Italian Renaissance painting. It presents a view of the interaction between artist and patron, and also of the function of these paintings in Italian society of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. Using letters, poems, and treatises, it examines through the eyes of the contemporary viewer the way women were represented in paintings.

Book News Annotation:

Synthesizing traditional interpretations and fresh insights, the author arranges her study in four sections relating to marriage furniture, portraiture, the nude, and depictions of female saints. In each section, she provides close analyses of paintings and works of art, integrating information about artistic problems and theory to the social history of the period. Her discussion encompasses the social and cultural context of the paintings, the intentions of the patrons, and the changes in types and forms of representation from the first half of the 15th century to the second half of the 16th. Distributed by St. Martin's Press.
