This beautifully illustrated book is the first to look so comprehensively at the role of the urban Italian house in the development of Renaissance art and culture. The Renaissance Home brings together a wide range of objects, from furniture and kitchen utensils to popular prints, jewellery and everyday dress, revealing how the homes of the upper- and middle-classes made a crucial contribution to the flowering of the visual arts in 15th- and 16th-century Italy. Drawing on a wide array of sources including letters, treatises, inventories, account-books and archaeological and conservation reports, it offers a completely fresh exploration of the fascinating domestic world of Renaissance Italy. Leading specialists in the field explore such topics as regional variations in structure and appearance, and the role of non-Western objects in decorative schemes. The Renaissance Home will have a life far beyond the exhibition, becoming a key work of reference for students of art and design, history and archaeology and anyone with an interest in the culture of the Italian Renaissance.This beautifully illustrated book is the first to look so comprehensively at the role of the urban Italian house in the development of Renaissance art and culture.
