Stephanie Porras’s well-illustrated study examines how art in the Low Countries, France, England and Germany responded to rapid political, economic, social and religious changes and the rise of the urban merchant class in the Renaissance period. The work of artists including Van Eyck, Dürer, Holbein and Bosch is discussed in chapters on themes arranged chronologically, from works of art as courtly and devotional gifts in c.1380–1420, to paintings as commodities in the art market of c.1540–60.
