This magnificent book, the third in the series Renaissance Art Reconsidered, focuses on the motives of the patrons who commissioned art both north and south of the Alps. Illustrated with almost 200 colour plates including work by Donatello, Michelangelo, Durer and Rubens, it examines the role of class, wealth and power in Florence and France, the market in Cretan icons, the relationship of art and death and, in a final chapter, Hans Holbein and the English Reformation.
