    French art in the early Renaissance period, around 1500, created a wonderful fusion of the Italian Renaissance and northern European Gothic styles. Accompanying an Art Institute of Chicago exhibition, this volume discusses in detail 116 examples of the exquisite paintings, sculptures, textiles, stained glass, metalwork and manuscripts of the period, and covers topics including royal patronage and prestige, court artists such as Jean Fouquet, Jean Bourdichon and Jean Hey, and the artistic landscape of early modern Europe.
